    The recent furore over the Sam Cane v Robbie Henshaw collision in the second test between Ireland and New Zealand got me to thinking about the merits of using slow motion video to make judgements about potential foul play incidents in rugby. I think we have all heard the meme that sometimes, looking ...

    Nigel Owens was born on the 18 June 1971 and raised in Mynyddcerrig; a small traditional Welsh speaking village approximately 12 miles from Carmarthen, in south west Wales. As a keen sportsman, Owens played Full Back for the school rugby team, but after missing a crucial match-winning conversion, the teacher made a tongue in cheek comment that he should consider becoming a referee. It was a half joking throw away comment which could have been instantly forgotten, but by happy coincidence it would change his life, because Owens thought to himself Why not? ...

    Biggar on Itoje, Owens on Heinz

    Thread Starter: belladonna

    I've seen some online chatter by disgruntled England fans that Biggar should be cited for his tackle on Itoje, and Ken Ownes for his ruck entry which led to Heinz's HIA. What do people think - is there anything in this, or is it just sour grapes? Unfortunately I didn't watch the match in real...

    Laws of Rugby Union - 1922

    Thread Starter: colesy

    A bit of an odd query but worth a try. My club has its centenary year in 2022 and weve started planning a series of events to mark the occasion. Ive been asked to try to track down the laws of the game as they were in 1922. Other than contacting the RFU, any suggestions?
