New laws explained with two very informative pitch demos

With the World Rugby Global Law changes already in place in the southern hemisphere and about to kick into gear in the north, here is a helpful look at what they mean for rugby viewers. Both BT Sport and Supersport have put together great demonstrations.

Referee Wayne Barnes was in the BT Sport studio for Rugby Tonight's first episode of the new season, chatting to Ben Kay, Ugo Monye and Maro Itoje to get fans to grips with the laws surrounding the scrum feed and hooking, the ruck and the touchline amongst others.

In South Africa, Supersport's First XV show had former Springboks Jean de Villiers, Gcobani Bobo and Warren Brosnihan to go through the laws, that are being used in the Currie Cup.

The ruck law in particular will be of interest to England fans, considering what Italy did to them in the Six Nations. As explained, all the changes are there to either simplify or speed up the game.

Both videos are worth watching as they will give you a well rounded understanding of the changes, and each have a slightly different way of explaining or demonstrating them.
