  • Rugby World Cup Fantasy & Prediction Contest

    RugbyRefs.com is delighted to offer you the chance to compete against each other on two competitions for the Rugby World Cup.

    We have a Prediction Comp, for predicting Match winners & margins, and a Fantasy comp for those who are a little more into their rugby, to see if they can manage their perfect team.

    The two comps are hosted by SuperBru and are open to RugbyRefs.com people on all utilised platforms (website, Facebook & Twitter).

    You have 13 days to get your selection in for the first round, and to select your ultimate team for the Fantasy competition.

    The competition is free for all to enter, there are currently no prizes, but those of us running the site will see what we can get.

    Good luck, to all that enter, links for both competitions can be found below:

    Are TMOs Ruining Things

    Thread Starter: Gracie

    Having watched Scotland v Fiji and England v NZ, as both a referee and a fan I'm left concerned by the role of TMOs. My concern is that it the person in a studio not on the field that is making decisions on an inconsistent basis. Park my partisan head in the Scotland referrals and lets look at the...

    I always thought that the best match report for a ref is the one where they don't mention you. However : France v South Africa , here is five minutes of NO "highlights" ... I don't think it's good refereeing to put your arm around a player. For me that's a simple power play. No doubt...

    Offside line at a tackle

    Thread Starter: Last_20

    I have a question about the Lawes off-side call - a couple of referees from our society have been discussing today and we have found ourselves having difficulty answering a fundamental question had we been refereeing that game (we wouldn't be because we are all too old and slow, but it doesn't stop...

    Guardian Article on Lawes Offside

    Thread Starter: crossref

    This is a very unusual article - actually full of Law References. He even distinguishes a Ruck from a TWOL and looks at the different criteria for when it's out, as well as what it means to be offside in each case (I think possibly Paul Rees has been reading this site?) I don't think it is...
