A new Power Play rule will to be introduced to the Varsity Cup in 2018.

The new rule is aimed at encouraging coaches to employ exciting, attacking tactics while fostering a generation of dynamic and adjustable rugby 

The team calling the Power Play may remove any two nominated backline players from the opposition for a period of three minutes of playing time. 

The Power Play can only be called by a team while in their own half, must be called by the captain, and can only be called once. 

If the team whose players have been removed score a try during the Power Play period, they are awarded an extra two points.
