    Re: Lineout quiz

    This has been a really interesting thread because it highlights an issue which is not in any way subjective. The 2017 law book outlined a scenario that was permissible (ie the receiver being...

    Re: Lineout quiz

    I'm with Treadmore on this one. Before the re-write of the laws the receiver joining the line-out once the line out had commenced was specifically allowed in law and was something the team I coached...

    Re: Quick Line out (not quick throw in)

    One of the things that irritated me when I started reffing was that as soon as the ball crossed the touch line non-throwing teams started shouting for numbers in the line. I actually now include it...

    Re: Why no red card?

    No real competition for the ball, uncontrolled entry to the collision which turned the airborne player beyond the horizontal who landed on his shoulder and whose head struck the ground before his...

    Ruck laws and glaciers seem to be experiencing similar problems, steady erosion, lots of discussion but no one actually doing anything about it. The evolution of tactics and methods of play is to be...

    [Scrum] Re: Flankers

    You'd certainly think so however in my memory scrum stability was never any sort of issue. At a defensive scrum, if we lost the ball (which wasn't preordained as we still believed in the great god...

    I was interested listening to the BBC Rugby Union Weekly podcast a couple of weeks ago, all three presenters, Chris Jones (BBC Rugby Correspondent), Ugo Monye (Ex British Lion) and Danny Care...

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

    Crossref raises a good point, common identity has historically been a very significant driver in the formation of many teams and clubs. Whilst not being blind to prejudice it is worth noting that...

    Re: Welsh cup semi final - fend with the forearm

    Loved the "game's gone soft" comments on the twitter feed below. Was a big reminder that there are still those people out there who remember shirts that became twice as heavy when it rained and for...

    [Law] Re: Toulouse red card.

    It does seem to have been an interesting decision. So on this site, almost complete agreement (in itself noteworthy) and amongst normally sane and sympathetic ex-professionals, the consensus seems to...

    Will Greenwood was also scathing about the decision on his podcast. RC for me though.

    [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    It definitely isn’t any old everyday tackle. He’s absolutely nailed it, brilliant technique with an unfortunate outcome. In adult telly rugby we would be absolutely lauding it and admiring his skill...

    How do you assess whether a tackler exercised their responsibility to bring the BC to the ground safely (for example) without looking at outcome?[/QUOTE]

    Re: Keith earls first try

    Agree with most of the comments, allow the phase to play out then review. No try for me and reverse the penalty. I’d also want a really close look at how the Edinburgh 9 landed to decide whether a...

    Keith earls first try

    I saw most of the Edinburgh v Munster game at the weekend but didn't see Keith Earls' 1st try. Having seen it for the first time today I'm surprised it hasn't warranted comment on here. The Edinburgh...

    Wasn’t there a thread on here a while ago about professional referees judging their performance by how few penalties they awarded during a game? What’s the difference?

    [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    The coach is perfectly at liberty to refuse to replace the player, it is a suggestion only done to reduce tension in a game where no specific act of foul play has occured.

    [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    The player isn't being ordered off, he is being voluntarily replaced. The point also is it isn't used for acts of foul play, but rather to minimise the risk of foul play occuring in the future. So in...

    One of the best management tools in youth rugby is to ask the coach to remove the overexcited player and replace him with a teammate. This can be done for a mutually agreed length of time and is, not...
  23. [Line out] Re: How do you resume the game for ball not going 5m?

    I can’t make up my mind on this one. There appears to be no reason why advantage cannot be played in that situation but in practice I suspect that there are few occasions when the non-throwing side...
