    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? ...

    Maul - Ball Carrier going to ground = tackle?

    Thread Starter: Strange

    Caveat - I'm pretty new to reffing. A game this weekend - Red BC gets smother tackled and a maul sets up, with 3 or 4 players from each side. BC is in contact with Blue player who is trying to rip. BC goes to ground and the ball touches the floor. Blue player starts to jackel, and claims that...

I have a watch on each arm (a spare in my bag ). Left wrist has hands for the time of day and a digital display stop-watch for the...

    Can this be a valid drop-goal ?

    Thread Starter: CrouchTPEngage

    7s restart - SA v Fiji

    Thread Starter: Dickie E

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1Txyuo-IjE have a look at the restart with 2:00 mins to go in the 2nd half. What's that all about? Ball bounces once on or about touchline. How can that be a lineout to Fiji? Surely its either out on the full or play on. :holysheep:
