    The National Rugby Championships (NRC) in Australia start today and RugbyRefs.com is pleased to be able to bring you the full appointments for match officials for rounds 1 & 2.

    The NRC is Australia's 2nd tier Rugby competition, created to reduce the gap between local club rugby & Super Rugby.

    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.

    TWOL and "using it"

    Thread Starter: oliver

    In the Munster vs Exeter game, Exeter set up what looked like a tackle with offside lines to create a situation for the 9 to clear. https://i.imgur.com/rEPS3BY.jpg If this was a ruck, the referee could call use it (as it's been clearly won by Blue) and give them 5 seconds to use it. However,...

    After final whistle

    Thread Starter: Balones

    Red cross the try line. The referee adjudges the ball held up and immediately blows for full time. Game over. Immediately the whistle goes it kicks off. Pushing, shoving, strong verbals and possibly the odd punch aimed. What would you do as referee?

    WHat sanction for coaches coming onto the pitch?

    Thread Starter: Zebra1922

    I am seeing increasing issues with coaches coming into the playing area when not permitted. There are lots of times they leave the technical area, this I can deal with (if it repeats) by removing them from the playing enclosure. Is that the only sanction to me if a coach comes on the pitch as...
