    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? ...

    Thread Starter: Zebra1922

    Bit of advice required. game yesterday, penalty offence c.15m out, quick tap and an immediate, cynical tackle within 2m of the offence by a player who didnt retreat. Advantage and Im thinking YC for the offender. Phase or two later team scores before I have to go back for the penalty/YC. ...

    2019 Heineken Champions Cup semi-final : Saracens v Munster

    Thread Starter: L'irlandais

    Exhibition rugby from Saracens. :clap: Well done to them. Munster beaten by the better team and falling well short of the mark. Very questionable performance from Jrome Garces. Not best served by the team of 4 either. He only finally went to the TMO with 3 minutes to go for a spear tackle. ...
