    The National Rugby Championships (NRC) in Australia start today and RugbyRefs.com is pleased to be able to bring you the full appointments for match officials for rounds 1 & 2.

    Organisers of the Rugby World Cup, taking place between September and October 2015 in England, have added an innovation to help novice fans learn the complex rules of the game.

    This was revealed when tournament organisers unveiled some of their plans for Britain's greatest global sporting event since the London 2012 Olympic Games. A report in the Daily Telegraph on April 29th had proposed some of the terms and rules that will be in the “Idiot’s guide to rugby union”. But now more details have been given about the organiser's mode of enlightening new fans about rugby.

    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...

    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:
