    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    Firstly, welcome to the forum, Norman Hurst. I wonder if you were at the Rec on Saturday?

    As suspected nothing in the highlights reel. Other than for Red’s second try you can see the Ulster substitutes warming up in the other in-goal, in the background. And at the end of the game you...

    Re: [RWC] Eng v SA

    In my opinion it wouldn’t take much to get boos out of England supporters after a loss of that magnitude.
    All serves to deflect attention away from England players’ slight on the award ceremony.

    The French were fined £10,000 for their approach.

    Presumably that regulation was put in place because some challanges have gotten right in the faces of the New Zealanders.
