    Open play and lineouts looked quite different then as well.

    I am no longer sure what the issue is here. We will all know a charge down when we see one. A successful one may be accompanied by a loud slapping sound, as the force of the kick goes thru’ the...

    Where does it say the carded player has to have left the pitch before a penalty can be taken? Law 7.3 makes no mention of this. We have already established that there is no such requirement for...

    Absolutely agree. The recklessness doesn’t come from tackling the diving player in the air. It comes from the fact that running full tilt from the far side of the pitch he had no chance of wrapping...

    Showboating aside, it is common for try scorers to dive over in the corner, simply to avoid being shoved into touch. So any review of that particular action would hardly conclude that Nkosi was...
