    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? ...

    Law 20 Striking after the throw-in.

    Thread Starter: Blindpugh

One player from the team who put the ball in must strike for the ball. I read the above law change and smiled, thinking about the many times we (front row) took the ball...

    Kicking ball out of a ruck. Is this illegal?

    Thread Starter: CrouchTPEngage

Basically, I allow a defending team to kick at a ball in a ruck, providing the following: 1)it is not near the 9s hands or dangerous (e.g near...

    New scrum law- no signal from the referee?

    Thread Starter: ctrainor

    Law 20.5 & 20.5 (d) 5 No signal from referee. The scrum-half must throw the ball in straight, but is allowed to align their shoulder on the middle line of the scrum, therefore allowing them to stand a shoulder width towards their own side of the middle line. Rationale: To promote scrum stability,...
