    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? ...

    Stoppages after 80 mins

    Thread Starter: crossref

    One odd thing about the France v Wales 100 minute game : after the clock reached 80 minutes from then on it didn't stop for anything - for instance all through the prolonged discussions WB had with the 4th official the clock ran and ran. Same for subsequent injuries, same for the TMO inspection of...

    Wayne Barnes communication

    Thread Starter: Thunderhorse1986

    I thought Wayne Barnes dealt with Saturday's ending as best he could, and showed himself one of the best and calmest operators in our little reffing world. One "criticism" I would have would be some of his communication to and about players. I know it is different at international level and they...

    Under 14s kicking to touch from a penalty

    Thread Starter: smudgie49

    I'm due to AR an u14 Cup Final later today so just boning up on the age grade rules of play. There is no mention of kicking to touch from a penalty so I would assume the 'normal' laws apply - in particular that you can kick direct to touch from a penalty (regardless of where you are) and the...
