Montana Law Variants

Montana Rugby Union

“MRU follows all IRB laws, with these exceptions, and these are the only exceptions….These directives are not changes to the MRU bylaws. These directives only apply to MRU games.

  • Tights are acceptable.
  •  When a yellow card is issued – the player leaves the field for 10 minutes or until the non-offending team scores a try; at that point the player is allowed to come back onto the field.
  • When a red card is issued the offending player is ejected from the game and suffers all associated sanctions that may occur as a result of the ejection but after a full 10 minutes the offending team can replace the missing player. “
