    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. During the matches, fans will have access to simplified, in-game commentary with detailed explanations of the rules related to what is currently happening in each match.

    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.

    Scotland vs SA - LO try

    Thread Starter: Zebra1922

    Scotland’s second try came from an innovative move. Number 7 is in the receiver position, and when the LO is thrown moves into the LO to catch the ball and run through to score. I’ve been nosing around the laws and can’t see where this is permitted. There are references to having a receiver ,and...

I thought Mr Barnes was lenient towards the AllBlacks in the first half, his warning could have come earlier in my humble one and the 2 incidents previously mentioned - high tackle on Stander and cynical...

    Law check - scrum turnover

    Thread Starter: Zebra1922

    I've had several incidents recently when if the ball is turned over in the scrum (i.e. won by the non putting in team) the now defending team immediately rush up beyond the 5m offside line prior to the ball emerging from the scrum.
