The Rugby League International Federation has issued a guideline for referees concerning any player who attempts to prevent a try being scored by kicking at a ball in possession of an attacking player.

International Laws of the Game allow for referees to penalise the action under: "Section 15, Player Misconduct ??(i) behaves in a way contrary to the true spirit of the game."

It will be open also, depending on the severity of the action, for the player to be charged with Contrary Conduct.

"It is a potentially dangerous act and we have advised the Australian team and indeed all teams of the action we propose to take," The Chairman of the Rugby League World Cup Appointments Board, Mr Michael Stone, said today.
