    Re: Covid law reforms

    Maybe I'm misinterpreting the science in a big way, but I don't think any of this is going to make any difference. If nobody is infected, it won't matter how long a scum is or how many people are in...

    [Kit] Re: SportLoMo

    We use it in Quebec. I'm not involved in running it, so I don't know how user friendly it is for those doing assignments. From my end, it is easy to access, easy to confirm or turn down assignments...
  5. [Line out] Re: At what point can a player leave a lineout to be passed to by the scrum half?

    I don't think the long throw is what the OP is asking about. I think he is asking whether the last man in line can leave and stand in front of the defending 10 before the SH receives the ball.

    [Law] Definition of a kick

    Do any of our resident historians of the law know how long the definition of a kick has excluded striking the ball with the knee?
    Thanks
  7. Re: Enforcement of current law - refereeing at the breakdown March 2020

    I agree. It isn't well explained. Does it mean that if the jackler doesn't have the ball up and clearly in possession before the arriving players get there he gets pinged for handling in a ruck?

    [Golden Oldies] Re: What happened next?

    Right after the mark, if that's what it was, it looks like the referee signalled a shot at goal.

    [Law] Re: Referees using player's names

    The premiership is a specific environment. They all know each other, and it may have been decided that it was acceptable. I have never heard WB use the equivalent of "Use it now Danny" in a test.

    [Law] Re: Penalty Kick at Goal Rules

    You can't do that. In Crossref's #8, it was a PK, not a conversion.

    [Kit] Re: Neoprene lifting supports

    I would think it would bring back late 80's early 90's second rows who had to use bulk to fight to win their ball. A Maro Itoje body type would have been eaten alive when I started playing.

    So much for momentum going into the World Cup. We lost 38-35. We will beat the British Columbia All-Stars, then get thrashed by the US in the last warm-up game.

    The law says disallow the kick, but I hate making players pay for my mistakes, particularly when I am likely the only person who knows that law.
