    Re: Covid-19 Returning to play in Sept?

    Interesting and thanks for sharing.

    Curious that passing drills were permitted, one presumes that the players wore gloves?

    [Law] Re: a few new boy questions

    This is the salient point.

    When a team makes a substitution and that takes them to the limit of the number of interchanges they are permitted I will tell the Captain that is their limit. I would...

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    Although before the Laws were (ahem) "simplified and not rewritten" there was a paragraph that stated all players approaching the line of touch (LoT) were deemed to be participating players.

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

    This move is one of those "about bl@@dy time" changes. Should have been done years ago.

    It goes to "Equity" as the defenders now have a legal way of stopping a try being scored. Let's all face...

  12. [Ruck] Re: Counter-rucking against the scrum-half at the breakdown "playing the 9"

    I'm not sure there will be "...half empty...stadia..." as the World fan base will ensure the matches are well attended. How many empty stadia were there in Japan? Not many, and the TV people will...

    Interesting read It does intimate that he was parachuted into the position at USA Rugby by WR as a condition of the original bail out.

    One does wonder who made the decision to move the 7s...

    Based upon the Press Briefing yesterday and the positive outlook by Chris Whitty and Boris I can see the season starting in September.

    Seems a bit extreme. Was there some form of scandal? Seems like a 'back me or sack me' move.
