Masters rugby league provides an opportunity for
players and officials to continue their involvement
in the game in a safe and enjoyable manner.

So that Masters players are able to compete in a safe environment, modifications to the International Laws of the Game have been made

In general, the changes apply to the following:

  • Game time
  • Number of players
  • Match rules including scrums, tackles and kicking
  • Special rules for older players

In 2011, a project team from Australia, Great Britain and New Zealand was formed to standardize the rules for Masters and a new set of Laws was subsequently approved by the Rugby League International Federation.

All NRL Masters events throughout Australia operate under the National Code of Conduct.

Participants in the game of Rugby League include:

  • Registered players
  • Accredited persons (coaches, sports trainers, Leaguesafe officers, referees and touch judges)
  • Officials (club, league or association staff and volunteers, ground managers and duty officials)
  • Members of the general public attending as spectators

Every participant should:

  • Discourage all instances of unsportsmanlike behaviour, foul or illegal play, or acts of violence, both on and off the field
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability/disability, sexual orientation, cultural background or religion
  • Condemn the use of recreational and performance-enhancing drugs and doping practices; their use endangers the health of players and is contrary to the concept of fair play.
