    [Law] Re: a few new boy questions

  8. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Yes , if they do come in I am sure there won't be a program to replace posts , there will just be guidance that says as and when new posts are installed, forks are regarded as best practice where...
  9. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Maybe one problem with forks would be a post where people weren't expecting it .

    I don't understand why we don't ever see American style tuning fork posts.
