    As we approach the start of the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, we are going to look at what the term 'Clear & Obvious' means to a referee, and the greater team of 4 in general.

    During the world cup, the match officials will be under a greater degree of scrutiny than has ever been seen before, the desire to get every decision correct is there, but perfection is something even that even the best teams have not yet achieved.

    Perfection for a team would surely mean that no player drops a ball, every pass goes where intended, every tackle is made, and every kick is successful. However, as supporters we understand that this is near impossible to do over a full 80 minutes. The dynamics of the game, along with the unpredictability of the opposition defence means that mistakes will happen, but it's how you over come them that really defines the team.

    Can't score (what) from free kick?

    Thread Starter: Huck2Spit

    Have my 2018 law book with me and it says nothing about not being able to score from a free kick. You still can't do that right? I'm sure it's meant to prevent being able to kick for 3 from the fk. Today awarded a fk 15m in for blue lineout infringement, green 10 quick taps, zig and zags through...

    Cipriani red but stiff arm on Morgan only yellow?

    Thread Starter: BikingBud

    Confused? I am as are many fans. How many collisions and tackles during the game? We can be forensic after the game and review highlights and pick up many potential citing events. Is that where we want the sport to be? I don't think so. First 2 mins of the Toulouse v Leinster game not...

    WRU Under Tens Question

    Thread Starter: tewdric

    One for the Welsh refs here: Im reffing U10 for the first time on Sunday. I've read through the variations to the standard U19 rules. The U10 bit specifically says a scrum is to be awarded for ko and forward pass, but does not mention 5m scrums at all. Does that imply no 5m scrums or that you...
