The International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) has announced its intention to publish a new rule book for the sport on January 1, 2018.
The move forms part of the IWRF's attempt to align the language of wheelchair rugby with that of its able-bodied counterpart, rugby union.
It is believed two very simple changes to the language used by wheelchair rugby will "better reflect the global sport of rugby" with goals being called tries and cones being called posts.
Other alterations will see penalty goals called penalty tries and the goal line called the try line.
The IWRF says the language has been trialled at various competitions this year, including the test event for next year’s World Championships in Australian city Sydney.
During the test event, commentators used the word "try" instead of "goal".
Over the last 18 months, the IWRF Technical Commission has been working with two wheelchair manufacturers and the Wheelchair Sub-Committee to try and improve the wording of section four of the rule book.
This pertains to the rules that are applicable to the wheelchair.
It is claimed the work is still in progress but should be completed in time for the release of the updated rule book.
The instructions and requirements for marking the court will also be updated to help ensure courts are easy to mark out and provide the space around the court for players to be able to play the game.
Examples of changes include the penalty score table being moved further from the sideline to 1.5 metres and the substitution area being between the score bench and the team bench.
The revised and updated rule book is due to have explanations for all changes made when released.
