  2. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    Sources linked (as always) in my previous post. In this particular case a Guardian artilce.
  3. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    I strongly suspect they didn’t want to go down that particular rabbit hole because one can go to prison for tax evasion.

    Premiership Rugby could get into trouble for facilitating, so it probably...

    Saracens getting a drubbing (52 - 3) from Bristol in two years time?
    The scandals that brought both clubs low, are not that dissimilar; namely Financial mismanagement.
  5. [CLUB RUGBY] Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final line-up:

    At least one English team (QF4) and one French team (QF2) will be eliminated at the next hurdle.

    Leinster v Saracens (QF1)
    ASM Clermont Auvergne v Racing 92 (QF2)
    Toulouse v Ulster (QF3)

  6. [Law] Re: Is there a definition of a kicking tee?

    Well Law 8.7c specifically says a kicking tee, which I take to mean one of those plastic things and not a construction of more than one.
    Places the ball directly on the ground or on sand, sawdust,...
  7. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    Winning the Champion’s Cup would put money in the War Chest. However a repeat the lack lustre first half showing against Racing 92 today, is unlikely to see them past Leinster in the QFs. A game of...
  8. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    Here in France, Club Athlétique Brive Corrèze Limousin (CA Brive, for short) were relegated to the second division back in 2000, and again in 2012. Although both times they have sportingly made it...
  9. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    The dismantling of the squad will start immediately. It's understood a handful of players will leave the club at the end of January.

  10. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    Perhaps consistency, is all we are asking for?
    Just not consistently wrong, that’s all.
  11. [CLUB RUGBY] Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    Saracens face Premiership relegation if found to have breached salary cap again
    The defending champions received a 35-point deduction and a £5.3m fine in November, having broken the cap for the past...
  12. [Law] Re: summary of law changes, proposals and trials ?

    World Rugby has introduced a set of law amendments which will be trialled at various tournaments this year in a bid to improve player safety and reduce the risk of injuries, the governing body has...
  13. [Golden Oldies] Re: Reports on Referee post-game on WhosTheRef

    Is there a link to the WhosTheRef match report?
    Personally, I take negative feedback as an opportunity to assess myself. Why might this person say such a negative thing about me, or my performance?...

  16. [Law] Re: summary of law changes, proposals and trials ?

    My #08 was more in answer to didds’ mate’s query about a page summarizing the Law change proposals.
    The linked page is a summary of what was proposed, so that doesn’t change over time.
    This year,...

    There had been interim reports, only nobody kept us posted up this side of the Globe.

  18. [Law] Re: summary of law changes, proposals and trials ?

    Law trials create a new unknown in 2019
    Surely they set a deadline for deciding which trialed laws to adopt? January in NRC land?

  19. [Line out] Re: Saracens vs Munster European Rugby Champions Cup

    Not sure I agree. You yourself have never let slip any foul language on, or near the field of play?

    This example of ERC fining a team doctor for calling the opposition hooker “a fat so-n-so”. ...
  20. [Assistant Referees] Re: Pushed by player - my fault for being in field of play?

    I agree. Here in the sticks running touch is a chore imposed on the teams’ substitutes. The flag is passed willy nilly from one to another and back again. None of the appointed referees confer...
  21. [Law] Re: Uncontested lineout drive/ maul - penalty?

    Maul guidelines 2016 are still available, but off topic for this discussion. Since as was pointed out to me an uncontested “maul” is open play.

    The 2014 guidance must be out there still. It’s...

    The Bath water carrier was trying to pull away one of his own team’s players.

    Red 9 took exception to the Bath player lying on his leg after the clear out, preventing him from covering back. How...

    Re: Bath/Sharks - AR pushing water-carier

    Poor communication by the match referee with the TMO. He repeatedly asked for foorage of Red 6, when he meant Red 9. He finally said Red 9 without realizing his earlier mistake, which made things...
  25. [Assistant Referees] Re: Pushed by player - my fault for being in field of play?

    Except in the case of the OP, his error was NOT trying to draw the referee’s attention to an off the ball scuffle. But rather getting too close to the scuffle as to get pushed by one of the players....
