    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? ...

    Offside under 10 metre law. or not ? No offsides in goal ?

    1st half ends with foul play, how to restart 2nd half

    Thread Starter: Huck2Spit

    Got much protest from coaches and Captain following my decision to start the second half with a PK. But I think it was the right call? We're past the 40-minute mark and play is still going on, Attacking side manages 10+/- phases of pick and roll rucking to score a try. As I whistle to award the...

    Lineout over after uncontested maul

    Thread Starter: DocY

    A question I was asked on Saturday got me thinking: I had the almost ubiquitous question about "what if we decide not to join a maul at a lineout?", and realised I'm not 100% sure when the lineout is over in this case. The situation is this: jumper comes down with the ball and immediately hands...
