Rule 10.1 states that "Players of both defending and attacking teams are to use the MINIMUM FORCE necessary to effect touches."

RULING - A penalty is awarded to the non offending team and, as a minimum, a warning to the offending player.

Referee Note A goes on to say "More than the minimum physical force to effect a touch should be dealt with severely."

So folks, please keep the touchs light and sensible.
