• Referee Rankings & Statistics after the Quarter Finals

    Here are the current Referee Rankings after the Qtr Final games:

    You'll see on the table the top and bottom scores in each area have been indicated, the top scores have been made bold and the bottom scores underlined.

    According to our Biased table (where supporters of the teams playing are included) we see a strange anomaly.

    We have 2 overall Columns, One is what the member rated the referee as overall, and the other is what the overall rating should have been , taking all the other ratings into consideration. We obviously rank in the table off the calculated total because this gives a much clearer picture.

    But, The calculated figure puts Roman Poite on top of the table, 0.1 points in front of Craig Joubert, but our membership has rated Criag Joubert's overall performances to be better than Roman Poite's, by 0.03.

    In fact in all scores accept scrums Craig and Roman are quite close. However when it comes to scrums Roman is a whopping 1.25 points ahead of his nearest referee.

    Craig also has the honour of being the only referee to have a rating of 10. His Fitness has been ranked as 10/10 by everyone that has rated his games. A great achievement.

    You'll also see that after the game on Sunday Bryce Lawrence has hit the bottom again, on both tables.

    If, as is being reported, the final will be refereed by one of the Semi-Final Referees, and Craig Joubert takes the honour, he will have made his own little piece of history.

    Craig will have become the first referee to have ever refereed a game at every stage in the World Cup.

    We shall see how he goes!


    Here you will see the total and average statistics for the referees and their games, in an easy to compare format, the referees are listed in alphabetical order.

    Can you see anything interesting in them?

    Thread Starter: jdeagro

    Could someone clarify and cite me the law that dictates if the goal is awarded when a kick taken for points goes directly over the top of the goal post. Is the goal awarded or not?

    RFU Under 14 & Under 15 NRoP: Line out

    Thread Starter: chbg

    2 questions: 1. What is an 'Uncontested Lineout'? More specifically, when is the opposition allowed to re-start the contest? 2. Under 15 only: is lifting and supporting only permitted for the throwing in side (as there is 'no contest' for the ball)? (Not that I can any tactical point in...

    Scrum Penalties

    Thread Starter: SmeejDad

    Hi Chaps, Quick question on penalties at the scrum - what is the penalty awarded for when a team simply drives the opposing team back at the scrum? This happened at the scrum a number of times during a match I refereed last weekend and I had a sense that I should be awarding a penalty to the...

    Unfortunate turn of events

    Thread Starter: Norfolk_Ref

    So... Quite unusual turn of events today. I refereed a private school's game this morning and as I turned to run, my mouth was open (as I look gormless most of the time) and what flies in and stings me on the tongue?? A wasp! I should have also been refereeing this afternoon but had a...
