    [Law] Re: Penalty Kick at Goal Rules

    In other words they invented the solution because they did not like what the laws said. Unacceptable.

    No. Having said that are going for the posts, they MUST do so. Scrum to the opposition.

    [Law] Re: Penalty Kick at Goal Rules

    You seriously believe somebody would use this as a tactic?! Even if you were convinced they had done so, the law prescribes a scrum at the mark for the PK.

    [Law] Re: Penalty Kick at Goal Rules

    But they didn't carry the ball out. And since a bounce off the post into touch is a freak event that nobody would aim for, they did not kick to touch illegally. Even if they had, the sanction is a...

    [Law] Re: Penalty Kick at Goal Rules

    You still need to explain why the Clarification gives the throw-in to the opposition. It should either be a scrum to them at the mark for the penalty (if the kick was deemed to be invalid) or a...

    [Law] Re: Penalty Kick at Goal Rules

    It did happen (in France) hence the Clarification.

    21.8 still prohibits place kicking for touch.

    Re: The new ERRA Course for Referees

    Offside is different because the offside law specifically provides for a player not being penalised if he follows the requirements. There is no get out clause for a knock-on.

    Re: The new ERRA Course for Referees

    Only if they are so much closer as a consequence that they can impact on Green's next move - and even then they would often prefer a scrum. The referee could perhaps call Advantage.

    Re: The new ERRA Course for Referees

    In my example I specified that the fumbler regained possession.
    If a team mate in front of him plays the ball, that is offside.
    If there is an opponent nearby who tries but fails to gather the...

    Re: The new ERRA Course for Referees

    Long kick downfield. Full back fumbles it but regains possession from the bounce. No opponent anywhere near.

    I do not see that as immaterial. The knock-on is an infringement. Retaining...

    Re: Should the game clock be reset?

    If we increase the ball-in-play time by fiddling with the clcok, we simply make the game more stamina dependant. I think it is tough enough already.
  15. [Law] Re: Law changes that have TRULY benefited the grass roots game

    When I started playing in 1949, you had to play the ball with a foot after a tackle - you could not just pick it up. This was abolished in 1958.

    To be fair to Luke, his first question was "Did it go forward?" Even without the TMO he might have decided it was not C&O.
