Rugby players at all levels of the game will be allowed to wear leggings or tights in matches after an amendment of the sport’s laws was approved by World Rugby’s executive committee.
Previously only females were allowed to wear leggings or tights, but due to the amendment of rugby’s Law Four, all of the game’s participants will now be able to add it to their matchday attire.
World Rugby revealed that the amendment was made because of concerns about possible abrasions sustained by players due to the usage of artificial turfs at various levels of the game.
