    SANZAR today announced an 18-man strong referee team for the 2013 Super Rugby competition.

    The announcement includes five new referees to the Super Rugby circuit, including Argentinean Francisco Pastrana (pictured, who controlled his first Super Rugby match in 2012).

    The team includes the Southern Hemisphere's top performers, with Craig Joubert, Steve Walsh and Chris Pollock (returning from injury) heading up a strong team.

    "The recent form of some of our referees in the Test environment has given us an excellent senior group within the team, and we have been able to include a healthy number of young referees," SANZAR Game Manager Lyndon Bray said.

    "They have been selected with an eye to the future, both for Super Rugby and Test rugby."

    Along with the Argentinean Pastrana, Australia's James Leckie has been recalled to the squad, while Rohan Hoffman (a former professional rugby player), Jason Jaftha from South Africa and Nick Briant from New Zealand get their first taste of Super Rugby with their selections.

    "Along with the five new referees introduced to Super Rugby in 2012, we have a very strong nucleus of younger referees, blended with some of the best in the world at the top of their game."

    The full Super Rugby Referee Team for 2013 is:

    Craig Joubert, Jaco Peyper, Jonathan Kaplan, Lourens van der Merwe, Stuart Berry, Jason Jaftha (South Africa)

    Chris Pollock, Glen Jackson, Garratt Williamson, Jonathon White, Mike Fraser, Nick Briant (New Zealand)

    Steve Walsh, Andrew Lees, Angus Gardner, James Leckie, Rohan Hoffman (Australia)

    Francisco Pastrana (Argentina).

    New ref this season so apologies if this a dumb question. I have searched this forum for an answer but I'm now more confused than ever, so.... Time is 80.01 - Red are 1 point up - Red knock on Blue gather the ball - do I now play advantage until the ball next goes dead ? At what point...

    Rugby Laws to become Clearer

    Thread Starter: Guyseep

    https://www.rugby.com.au/news/2017/12/06/rugby-law-book-change Even without seeing it yet, all I have to say is, "Finally!" I am going to be optimistic that the large majority of issues and questions we have toiled over on this forum will be resolved, and we won't have to debate the minutia...

    Clearer Rugby laws - lineout

    Thread Starter: Balones

    Thought I'd start a new thread for each clearer law because otherwise it might get impossible to follow. Is it me but do the clearer laws simply say that the lineout must take place at the mark of touch? So once the full version of the laws are put away we are doing away with the 5M lineout...

    Player in scrumhalf position

    Thread Starter: Methos

    Hi All This is my first post on here following a disagreement with a fellow coach. Can you please clarify this situation. My team called a 5 man lineout. Instead of having a no 9 at the no 9 position we put a big guy. We throw in and catch the ball - can the big guy be the guy that rips the ball...
