Then a meeting with the coaches of First and Second. Also a video to the teams with 30 plays. Then with the narrators. A circular was issued. On December 10 it was explained again. On March 2, more. The Committee has responded to all, but has not received any doubts about the technical issue of the hands. “

The time has been reduced to 85 seconds per intervention. “
