    My bad. I mean ironic but wrote sarcastic.

    [Law] Re: Kick-off not reaching 10m Line.

    I reckon you are being sarcastic, but just for the sake of it: I don't think it matters in a QTI, does it?

    [Line out] Re: Fiji-Japan linouts inside the field of play

    I reckon the ARs were already moving towards the posts and had their backs partially turned as well, although at least the one you can see in the footage seems like he is looking exactly in the right...

    [Law] Re: Kick-off not reaching 10m Line.

    Lineout option is unlikely indeed but still on if your scrum sucks but you have a solid lineout. Of course you still have the QTI option too. I have seen it with my very eyes while ARing: smart...

    [Line out] Re: Fiji-Japan linouts inside the field of play

    The materiality of gaining those 15 cm is minimal. I think we have much more pressing issues to deal with (crooked scrum feeds anyone?).

    [Law] Re: Kick-off not reaching 10m Line.

    Doesn't seem fair to me:

    Bad kick: goes 10m but out to the full. Options for the opponents: re-kick, scrum, OR lineout

    Awful kick: not 10m AND out to the full. Options for the opponents:...

    [Ruck] Re: Advantage

    The advantage might have been for tackling the man without the ball although I reckon it looks like he is calling "in from the side". The rest is a sequence of brain farts indeed :(
  8. [Scrum] Re: When, exactly, does the scrum-half end the scrum...?

    It always depends: If one team's 8 and 9 are slow as hell you are probably going to have a mess at each scrum they win and there's not much you can do about it.

    [Law] Re: Time and PK

    It's funny that something in the line of "admonishing, cautioning, or sending off a player" as well as "talking to a team's captain" is not in the list: I always call time off in such occasions and I...

    [Law] Re: In front of knock on

    I'd argue they are all probably offside under the 10 metres law, hence no action from the opponents can put them back onside. They must retreat behind the position of Red 15, where he knocked the...

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum half put in

    I always wondered why it is not something we see more often. Probably at the levels you expect to regularly see uncontested scrums coaching usually doesn't reach this depth.
  12. [Law] Re: Offence warranting YC the. Try, go back and YC?

    I call out loud what the restart is going to be whenever I have to call time off for injuries, subs, or similar stuff. Something like "Peep! Time off. Scrum red here."
  13. [Law] Re: Offence warranting YC the. Try, go back and YC?

    If a player succeeds in denying the opponents a try by means of foul play it is a PT and a YC. I don't see why being unsuccessful in denying the try should make it any better: it's like the offending...

    [Law] Re: another indadvertant touchdown

    Does anything in the law prevent you from throwing a lineout skewed enough so that there is NO WAY the opposition can gain possession? That would force the ref to blow his whistle: ball dead, game...

    Switching between games is one thing, another thing is switching every fourth phase or something while keeping in mind which side the AR is.

    Switching TJs at half time would be the sensible thing to do.

    On a separate note, in association football there must be either two ARs or two TJs (actually club linesmen but whatever), no mixed...

    I wasn't the one suggesting the single AR shall not report foul play.

    One issue I can see is that it is difficult for the referee to manage it correctly during the game: if he wants to make full use of the one AR he's got, he should adapt an asymmetrical way of...
