    Penalise teams late onto the field

    Thread Starter: Zebra1922

    Id like the hive minds opinion on when you would penalise a team for being late onto the field of play with a penalty. one team was late today leading to a 1402 KO instead of 1400. Oppo coaches were adamant I should have given a penalty, voicing their opinions both before and after the game...

    Offside by QTI

    Thread Starter: Rich_NL

    In a game I played in recently (old man rugby, not the highest pace): Blue kick deep from their own half, red 10 gathers the ball just inside his own 22 and gets bundled into touch by blue 6. As the teams are running back, blue 6 takes the QTI 2m back from the LOT to blue 12 - who immediately...

They were surprised - said it was just a tap and pass. looked more like the CC at the 1987 Wales v England game. Highlights here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ukm_T_nXqg - near the end. OB when...

    Club refs, in England, are they covered?

    Thread Starter: ctrainor

    Just picking up an issue from another thread where people have implied that Club refs and clubs who allow fixtures with them to take place are not covered by RFU insurance as they must have a minimum qualification. If that's the case that could spell serious trouble as I'm sure most societies do...
