    [Law] Re: Not 5 at QTI

    There's no way I am trying to manage that pitch-side (even if my brain works quickly enough)...

  2. Re: Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa

    Sky sports customers were able to freeze their payments (personally I think sky should have done this by default, but the process was very easy).

    I would argue there is no correlation between cost...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    Fair enough - although as a ref (I don't AR much) we look where we think offences will probably occur (e.g. I rarely watch the fall-back during a maul - I'm looking for offside, swimmers and...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    As an TJ - nothing
    As a AR - make sure I spot the next one
    As a club - make sure he knows that it is unacceptable, and if needed discipline him.

    Re: [6N] Eddie Jones Post Match Comments

    Unpublished secret guidelines really do not make the job of a community ref easier! And frankly until either WR, RFU or soc. instruct me to do otherwise - I am sticking with the published version.

    [In-goal] Re: Double Movement and Mauls

    Others have answered regarding held-up, but just wanted to add that because a maul (or ruck) can’t happen in goal - the usual offside lines don’t get created either.

    General advice is to blow...

    [6N] Re: Wales v France - Did the ref bottle it?

    1. Yes for me, I think that was a deliberate slap at the ball and not totally incidental to the tackle. I was surprised it wasn’t given as a PK and if it’s a PK, it’s also a PT and YC.

    2. No - I...

    [Tackle] Re: Not really a tackle but a slide..

    Sure ... but if you were to push a player in the face that would also be wrong, until you had the ball - at which point it becomes a hand-off.

    [Tackle] Re: Not really a tackle but a slide..

    I get the outcome is dangerous - but the retreating player is entitled to go to ground to get the ball, and also entitled to slide. I don't see him as having committed an infringement, nor do I see...

    “Attacking” is a defined term, so I would expect any reference to the word in the laws to be used inline with definition. That is true in the scenario given in OP.
