    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 ...

    Should a normal Lineout be permitted, when it's short of the LoT?

    Thread Starter: VM75

    https://youtu.be/fYKSMK7o4M8?t=1741 In this Clip, NZAB hooker sets his throwing position some 2 - 2.5m short of the LoT, despite the AR clearly marking it otherwise. Was it necessary for JP to use time to reposition the LO, surely if the thrower doesn't want to stand on the LoT but instead...

    Sneaky QTI

    Thread Starter: didds

    Anybody else notice this nicely sneaky QTI "move" last saturday by the MAB? They did it twice (not sure when the other instance is) so I do think its pre-planned, or at least pre-considered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqNGshZBhJg&feature=youtu.be&t=2860 MAB catches ball in touch,...

    Thread Starter: Lee Lifeson-Peart

    Lions tour -lack of yellow cards

    Thread Starter: Novice-Ref

    Just watching the Hurricanes match and for me there is once again a continual reluctance for referees to a) issue warnings b) issue yellow cards for the escalation of technical penalties. Players are getting wind of this and it is having a negative effect on the game. Agree?
