    A while ago during my search for prizes and items for auctions for the upcoming 10th anniversary of RugbyRefs.com I managed to make contact with former Test Match Referee, now iRB Referee Selector & Head of SANZAR Referees Lyndon Bray. (Pictured Left).

    I wasn't very sure what I could ask/beg for from Lyndon, considering that the individual unions are in charge of their referees' kit, so I asked if he would mind answering a few questions. Lyndon replied within minutes congratulating us on the significant milestone and agreeing to answer some questions.

    So then the hunt was on, I posted a thread and allowed the members to choose the top questions by way of liking the posts they thought were worthwhile. After just over a week I collated all the questions, and sent them on to Lyndon for answer.

    Considering Lyndon's place on the iRB I also thought it was a great opportunity to clear up a couple of areas of law that we believed needed more clarity and Lyndon was again happy to give his opinion.

    So, Without further ado, here are the questions that our members put to Lyndon, and of course, his answers:




    Question 1:
    We have seen in this year's edition of Super Rugby (especially in the latter half of the season), a tendency for referees to rule that the ball is "out" of a ruck when the halfback has a hand ...

    By Scott Rogan

    I wish I could sit back and regale you with tales of my Super Rugby and Test refereeing career, but I cannot. My career as a referee peaked some time ago, and it was more like a small hill than a soaring peak. I am not holding my breath waiting for the phone call inviting me into the Super Rugby referees Squad, but just in case Lyndon my number is in the book. These days I spend more time coaching referees than refereeing, but I am happy with that. I see my job now as helping develop the next generations of referees. Inevitably among the young guys, the question comes - So what does it take ...

    Do you walk through the tunnel after the game?

    Thread Starter: ctrainor

    I've always clapped both teams through and walked through myself at the end. Just thought this was normal. You will get some who will ignore you, some shake your hand/ pat your shoulder/ cheers ref. Was AR last week and my ref colleague clapped both teams off but didn't walk through, said he...

    Mark from a penalty

    Thread Starter: Joe@trfc

    I was wondering if the defending team can call a Mark if the attacking teams kick was from a penalty.

    Team Y/C

    Thread Starter: Arabcheif

    Just a wee thought. We have the facility to issue a Y/C for repeated team infringements. Is it normal practice to count any offence in this or just ones that one blows for and penalises. Do we include immaterial offences that we've not PK'd in the total for repeated infringements?

    Should the ladder/caterpiller ruck be outlawed?

    Thread Starter: CrouchTPEngage

    https://www.rugbypass.com/news/exeters-use-of-controversial-ladder-rucking-loophole-criticised Interesting article about the use of the caterpiller or "ladder" ruck. Slowing down the game. Giving the 9 lots of space and time to box=kick with no pressure. Is this clever, entertaining or boring...

    Pro14 Munster versus Ulster

    Thread Starter: L'irlandais

    After five minutes of play Ulster's line-speed making it hard for Munster to spread the ball wide. Luke Marshall steps in and makes an interception and then Cooney swiftly kicks - he's in Faf de Klerk mood - behind the Munster winger. However, he misjudges and the ball finds touch on the full....
