    Re: new Scrum laws for next season.

    Just seen the RFU material at http://www.rfu.com/thegame/laws/scrumtrial. The Good Practice tab gives the clearest view I've seen yet of how it should be. This is good. Unfortunately every...

    Re: Eng A v Scotland A & uncontested scrums

    Quite right. I watched. The Scots scrum was beaten all ends up, and the commentators used the word 'inevitable' to describe the expected PT. It makes me think that the BBC reporter is either (a) a...

    Re: Eng A v Scotland A & uncontested scrums

    Law 20.1(e) exception says that when a gem has less than 15, the scrum can be reduced by a similar number. So in the case in question, Scotland A could have 6 in the scrum while England Saxons had...

    Right, it's 6:55 on Friday 7th September and the cut-off for entries is at 7:45. There are about 30 entries so far and that means a prize fund of about 75 to split between the best three entries....

    Re: RWC2007 Prediction competition

    Thanks for entering. In the end it's pretty unlikely that any group will actually end up with three teams all on 12 points, becuase of try and narrow-loss bonus points. The group calculations are...

    In the days before yellow cards, I saw a referee penalise London Irish in the final of Hampshire Colts sevens (they were a guest side). One of them answered back and the ref made a new mark 10...
