A Core Value in Rugby

Ensuring a safe and fair game.

Discipline is one of Rugby’s core values

Ensuring a safe and fair game.

The game's intensely physical characteristics means that there are firm boundaries within which players must operate to ensure that the game is as safe and fair as possible.

  • All players on the field must play within the laws of the game and foul play contrary to World Rugby Law 9 (Foul Play) is penalised by the on-field match officials.
  • For more serious foul play, players may be required to attend a disciplinary hearing in accordance with World Rugby Regulation 17.
  • Everyone involved in rugby is also required to adhere to World Rugby’s values and regulations, and breaches of World Rugby’s Regulations may also result in a hearing before a World Rugby Judicial Panel.

This video by World Rugby explains how the disciplinary process works.
