    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.

    Thow to avoid touch

    Thread Starter: Ian_Cook

    Just watching the Shute Shield match this afternoon, Randwick (Green) v Easts (Blue). Green 15 (Lachie Anderson) receives an inside pass from Green 11 (Reece Robinson) just inside the left hand touchline. Green 11 fell into touch, and because of the direction Green 15 was going when he received...

    offside backs

    Thread Starter: Dickie E

    A player who is in an offside position is not automatically penalised. In the Quins v Wasps game in 68th minute there was a lineout won by Quins who decide to rumble the maul upfield. There was never any indication that they planned to do anything else. Wayne Barnes pinged the Wasps backs for...

    Maul / Choke tackle

    Hi all Can't find clarification about the maul forming, so would appreciate your views and opinions. During a game of 7s, Red take the ball into contact and Blue players hold the ball carrier up. Additional Blue players assist, the Red player is still in possession and not moving anywhere...
