    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.

    Incorrectly taken penalty.

    Boots

    Thread Starter: tewdric

    Is there anything to say a referee must wear rugby boots? I'm thinking the ground will be hard over the weekend and my Inox fell/trail shoes would grip better and be faster and more comfy than my old faithful Adidas Flankers!

    Offence warranting YC the. Try, go back and YC?

    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 didn’t retreat. Advantage and I’m thinking YC for the offender. Phase or two later team scores before I have to go back for the penalty/YC. ...

    Age Variations

    Thread Starter: Arabcheif

    Chaps, I've newly passed my Level 1 Refs Course. I'm looking for the age variations for U13-U18 levels. The SRU site isn't displaying these. Can any of my fellow SRU refs give me the variations please?
