    It's not World Rugby's job to communicate to anyone but the unions?

    Not really, it destabilises the opposition hooker because you can carry more load right along your spine than parallel to it.

    Imagine doing a squat with a weighted barbell, then shifting half of...

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    And if they don't want to because the athlete subsequently does something they consider undesirable, that's between them and the athlete too, right? I'm fairly sure a contract isn't carte blanche to...

  6. [Maul] Re: After Maul Collapse. Can opposition play it with hands when off feet? Bath v Glos

    Then you go back for the scrum turnover, and don't override it with the penalty against - that would be the gotcha.
  7. [Maul] Re: After Maul Collapse. Can opposition play it with hands when off feet? Bath v Glos

    I'm with the ref. Ball not C&O available, turnover scrum.

    If "immediately" roughly means the amount of time it takes to say "immediately", that ball takes too long - if it was a tackled player...

    Re: Next season's trials..

    Or 10, after every tackle? ;)

    1m is much harder to judge than in front/behind. Gameplay will evolve, and there will be more controversies rather than fewer. Perhaps they should start by enforcing...

    Re: Next season's trials..

    I think it depends on the type of tackle most likely to cause concussions. I suspect that the most problems arise in open play where players are 1 on 1 at high speeds, so this may make it worse (or...

    Re: retaken conversion

    I tell him the time once.

    Are you going to lie about the time, fabricate an offence, or make up a reason to stop the clock? I don't think any of them reflect well on a referee, and all leave you...

    I disagree. The 30 seconds are the player's privilege, not your grace.

    Your opinion is less relevant than the legal fact that there is an inequality in legal status.

    Re: retaken conversion

    I played half a match with a broken wrist at school. The coach said if I could move my fingers it wasn't broken; apparently greenstick fractures don't work that way. Back in the 80s, men were men,...

    [Law] Re: Advantage Quiz again

    In both cases he's accepted the ball, so it's play on in terms of not-10, and he's taken the ball into touch so it's lineout Red.

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    That's not the question - BC1 doesn't go into touch here. BC2 is wrestling for the ball, his feet go C&O into touch, BC1 still in the field of play. Your call?

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    Slow and exaggerated: Blue 10 has the ball, holding it back towards his own goal line, arms outstretched.

    Blue 12 walks up, arms outstretched, and grasps the ball, standing two metres behind 10.

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    The player passes (the act of handing the ball) backwards. I'd say maul over, play on, and I don't think anyone keeps track of this in a larger rotating maul.
  21. Re: Assisting the ball carrier when he is tackled

    This is the League forum, and RL doesn't allow mauls.

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 seems to cover it, given that "inheriting the kingdom of God" and "going to hell" are seen as the binary options available in most protestant theology.
