    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.

    When to make the mark

    Thread Starter: crossref

    At a PK, after consulting the TMO you issue a YC Meanwhile a player is called off for an HIA Q .. before making the mark for the PK should you wait until the YC and HIA players have actually left the pitch ? Or do you make the mark and allow the non offending team to take the PK quickly ?
