LYING WITH, ON or NEAR THE BALL (19) (Now LAW 14)

As per IRB Laws of the Game, but with "a sense of feeling" by the referee in respect to the age of players.

Law (18) Tackle - All players must observe the restrictions on tackling (stopping) "older" player.

Players of both teams are wearing adequate coloured shorts, indicating their age.
The following system of Identification of Players is valid throughout the Europe:

35 - 39 years White shorts            40 - 49 years Blue shorts
50 - 59 years Black shorts            60 - 64 years Red shorts
*65 - 69 years Yellow-gold shorts        ** 70 and over Purple shorts


*  Players wearing these shorts may not be tackled (brought to the ground),

** Players wearing these shorts must not be stopped (or tackled).
Shorts for such a player(s) will be given by Festival Organising Committee.

When such a player has, or runs with, the ball, the match referee has to shout loudly the colours of the shorts so that the opposition should be aware of the fact of having in front of them a "super oldie", and to act appropriately.
