World Rugby would be considering modifying the red card rule, with a view to the World Cup in France in 2023. The entity that regulates rugby worldwide could make a change in it, which would be that the ejected player should leave the field of play and, after 20 minutes, could be replaced by another player.
As reported by The Telegraph, World Rugby would consider introducing the 20-minute red card. The law, which is already in force in Super Rugby and was implemented in the 2021 Rugby Championship, means that the sent-off player can be tactically replaced by a teammate after 20 minutes.
World Rugby chief executive Alan Gilpin assured the British outlet that this is already under discussion: “That has been discussed before and will be discussed again. It would be great if more competitions, even in a closed test, used it because That would give us an overview of the effect it would have on the game.”
At the same time, the manager added: “We need to see more data to see if that strikes a better balance between safety and spectacle. There is more work to be done to analyze that and the concern is if a team goes back to 15 players, It’s enough of a deterrent to driving that behavior change. We’d like to see it tested more widely before jumping to conclusions.
