  1. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    With goal posts at the back of the goal line, the post protector now becomes an issue again. Would grounding it against the protector - unlikely, I know, but bear with me - be considered in goal, or...

  4. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    You've not thought that through, or you've expressed it badly.

    If the defenders ground the ball against the post pad in-goal, it will be grounded by virtue of the fact that it has been touched to...

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    1. I tell the props - either side of the mark and hold your arm out so your finger tips touch. That's the gap.

    2. Either opposite the defending hooker, or at the back, offensive side, 2m back.

    [Law] Re: new boy questions round 2

    In that situation, a 22 will happen. I wouldn't worry about "what's the point", and just apply law.





    Bad weather conditions perhaps?

    The 7s WC event ran USAR to a substantial loss. So, not so much.

    Nobody, but nobody, in their right mind would consider hosting an event in Detroit. It isn't a major rugby playing hub, and frankly is a shithole. Chicago, maybe.

    LA or San Fran, maybe. Washington...

    Well, Australia has been mandating a two week lockdown for most arrivals into the country.

    We're about to start using it, and I've sat through demos.

    You presuppose that (a) also means legal. I could argue the two are diametrically opposed. Bearing weight on feet and hands on ball would make it exceptionally unlikely you survive a clean out.
