    [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.


    It may have been the case donkeys years ago but...

    Re: Foot on the Line

    I remember the wise words of The Percy on here, when I queried the law change; it confused the hell out of me.

    [Ruck] Re: Gain in ground - taken back to 22

    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.

    Going back to the OP, imagine if Green 10 had charged down the kick and it had gone forward and picked up by Green 7, then Green 7 would have...

    [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.

    Played: The ball is played when it is intentionally touched by a player.

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

    I've often wondered what I would do if scrums became a real issue so it's good to know the law book allows this.

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum PK

    So what do you think the Referee is signalling?


    The No 8 is allowed to release his bind to pick up the ball and can now pick up from the 2nd Rows feet.


    So what law has been broken?
