    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 ...

    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 ...

    Outcome of a maul

    Thread Starter: Rich_NL

    Red carries the ball into a maul, which goes to the ground. Green is bound to red ball carrier and goes down with him, keeping tight hold/smothering the ball, preventing red from making it available. Two possibilities: 1) Green must not make ball unplayable, and is off feet thus must release...

    Yellow card for retaliation.

    Thread Starter: L'irlandais

    I get it that the referee's initial plan to give both players a warning changed when James Haskell retaliated. However doesn't dragging a player out of a ruck by the scrum cap and generally trying to provoke a reaction merit, at the very least a talking to? Why no yellow card for Joe Marler here?...

    Where should kick be taken after a mark?

    Thread Starter: Blindpugh

    In yesterday's game red 9 put in a lovely box kick into opponents 22. Black 15 covers across and calls mark and runs into touch. AR gave throw in to red as he felt Black 15 had one foot in touch and one in field when he caught the ball. Referee adjudged that Black 15 had called mark before...
