Rule 3.5 states "Players are not to participate in any match while wearing any item of jewellery which might prove dangerous. Long or sharp fingernails are to be trimmed or taped"

Referee Note B in Rule 3 goes on to say that "Referees ARE to inspect team clothing and footwear prior to matches. Fingernails and jewellery of all competitors are to receive specific attention"

So everyone, all watches and neck chains off and check those sharp fingernails.
