Let's embrace the challenge
You summary covers the roll only.
So ok the bfta are allowing the use of the roll in this trial period. That's fine....
However, you omit mentioning anything about a kneeling mat that can be used in conjunction with the trial roll. Is this on trial too?
Knee pads, can they be worn in addition to the use of a yet undecided mat thickness and size?
If these are too on trial when will people know what they can or cannot use?
Will these rules be clear by the start of the season in April?
Or will people still be able to use what they consider to be a trial ?
