    Re: Covid-19 Returning to play in Sept?

    Both teams' forwards face off in a simultaneous haka, and the scrum half does what he normally does and rolls the ball straight to one of his locks. :D
  2. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Put the tuning fork 2m behind the line, curve it so the crossbar is over the line. Goal line is unimpeded, conversions unaffected.

    The problems are cost (everyone needs new, more expensive posts,...

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    1 - I make two marks on the 5m line.
    2 - really depends on the level (and age grade) of the match, where on the pitch it is, weather... hard to say. Certainly as a beginner, starting at the front is...

    [Law] Re: new boy questions round 2

    FK advantage can be played, it's pretty rare as it's usually an advantage in a scrum or lineout that you don't want to let breathe. But consider: blue QTI, red 7 blocks the ball inside the 5m line...

    Re: C-19 lockdown exercide

    Bodyweight circuits and occasional runs with the kids. I had a cold a couple of weeks ago that left me short of breath (? maybe...) so I'm slowly building back up to somewhat normal.

    Re: New record

    You assume that the tiebreaker is the gold standard, though. A tiebreaker at the end of a season can favour a team with more depth as injuries take less toll, or a second team who can call up a...

    Two seasons ago I had a 0-114 game, both sidse full and with reserves. The away team needed the points difference to be sure of promotion. It was otherwise a fairly dull match.

  8. [Law] Re: England Women vs Wales Women - player off feet playing ball

    The player on her feet doesn't have to let red up, but a player off feet can't prevent a player on feet from taking the ball - red has to release

    [Ruck] Re: scrum half protection

    Requires, not enables.

    Good or bad, the way it's reffed at high level is that if the ruck has collapsed and the ball is available to one #9, they are protected while they pass it away because...

  16. [6N] Re: Eng v Wal: Courtney Lawes charged for making a dangerous tackle

    I thought at the time yellow, as AWJ dropped. Watching again, I'm not sure - a card of either colour wouldn't surprise me.

    Re: French Red Card

    And if we look at the first page, you're the only ref not to think Richie earned a card for running in. You may choose to reflect on why this is, and why the nearby French players didn't, or you may...

    If you're experienced, you'll probably have noticed that in such situations it's generally the player running in who escalates things from jostling, and that it's quite standard for that player to be...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    I don't think it's my job as referee to police the consensuality of team dynamics, and I believe I'd rapidly lose any authority or respect if I tried to.

  22. [Law] Re: England Women vs Wales Women - player off feet playing ball

    So in context of the situation described in the OP, you're saying that the Welsh player isn't playing on the ground/holding on to the ball because her backside has been lifted off the grass?
