Welcome to Twitter, the world’s biggest micro-blogging service where 50 million people every day have something to say, where revolutions gain momentum, where some of the world’s biggest stories are broken and where reputations can be shattered in an instant.
Make no mistake - Twitter and other types of social media are not a craze or a fashion trend that will eventually phase out. Even sport is embracing it . . . in a big way.
The Code : A Defender cannot shoulder charge a ball Carrier to Tackle
Application: A defender who RUNS at a ball carrier and WITHOUT ATTEMPTING TO TACKLE, GRAB OR HOLD THE BALL CARRIER charges him with the shoulder or with the upper arm (TUCKED INTO HIS SIDE) is Guilty of an infringement.
Senior Referees, Director of Referees Development, Co Directors and Coaching panel discussed this topic at training on Wednesday and ALL REFEREES are advised to continue with the present procedure that has been followed since the start of the season.
If the Injured player does not interfere with play, the play will continue.
If an accredited trainer, after assessing the nature of the injury, deems a stoppage of play is necessary they will bring this to the attention of the Referee. A stoppage of play will then occur.

This is not a new subject but it never seems to go away. Junior League is desperately trying to reign in trainers who continue to ignore both JL guidelines in relation to their role and the Laws of the Game and we have a role to play.
