    Re: Pulling a player from the ruck/tackle

    Funnily enough I got pulled up on this last season when I let it happen. One Coach wasn't happy his side weren't given a PK and politely suggested I check. I asked around a couple of Refs and all...

    Makes sense. Foul Play should trump a technical infringement.

    Re: Can I Clarify The Offside Line.

    I did politely query it at the time, but he explained that given that the opposing SH has to stay within a metre of the scrum, it was impossible to go past the Flankers feet and stay within 1 metre...

    Re: Can I Clarify The Offside Line.

    That's what I thought. My understanding was that the ball was the offside line - till the scrum was over, but a far more senior Ref pulled me up on it after my game last Saturday and told me it was...

    Can I Clarify The Offside Line.

    I suspect I may have got this wrong, so would like to get it clarified.

    Re: Charging into A Maul

    The "Gate" applies to tackles. With Rucks and Mauls, I think the wording says a player must join from "behind or alongside" the hindmost player. If he joins the Ruck / Maul in front of the hindmost...

    [Law] Re: Referees using player's names

    Like the opening poster, I wouldn't know most of the players first names (at best I may know about 3 or 4 players from each side) so it's a variation on the theme, but where possible I try to use the...

    [Law] Re: Mark from a penalty

    Yes, you can call a mark if the ball ricochets off a post. In fact I'm pretty sure it happened in the recent Scotland v France RWC warm up game.

    I would say No.

    If that's not a clear case of "taken back in" then I don't know what is. Make it clear though.

    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    [Law] Re: Offside or not

    There can clearly be offside from a charge down Flish.

    [Law] Re: Offside or not

    I'm torn on this one.

    If I was minded to say he was offside (see above) personally I think I would have given a scrum for accidental offside rather than a PK. Why? Because that seems the fairest...

    [Law] Re: Offside or not

    The problem here is that "Played" is defined in the lawbook.

    The word "intentionally" has obviously been put in for a...
