With the first weekend of Super 14 2008 underway, the new Experimental Law Variations have been a huge talking point.
Was the weekend a success because of them, or was it just a weekend of pure experimentation, with players, ref's, and fans all looking as confused as each other?
This interesting video features the New Zealand Super 14 side, the Chiefs, and shows their preseason training and thoughts on the how the season ahead will pan out under the new laws.
To find out more about the exact definitions of the ELV's and what they actually entail, have a look at the detailed thread about ELV's in our new forum. Feel free to ask questions there too.
