40/20 Law in Mod League
Following a submission by the National Refereeing Accreditation Scheme (NRAS) Sub-Committee to the ARLD Council at its meeting of Thursday 2 December 2010, it was resolved that I write to all State and Territory Leagues to clarify that the 40/20 Law IS to be played in all Mod League Under 12 Competitions.
There had been some confusion about whether the rule applied in Junior competitions.
Mod League Law 19 (Kicking) states:
"…Kicking in general play is allowed – APART from –
(a) "bombs" or "high up and unders"
(b) attempts to score a drop/field goal…
"’Chip’ punts, grubber kicks and kicks for touch (subject to Law 14) are permissible.".
