    [RWC] Re: Referee Rankings

    Interesting, because he seemed to keep his worst performance of the season for Wasps v Quins. The fact that he had to march each team back 10 metres says it all.
  2. [6N] Re: 6 Nations launch event - questions for coaches/captains

    That also applies to the maul, specially one approaching the tryline, when players, esp backs, join from the side and in front of the ball-carrier. When did anyone last see that pinged?

    [Law] Re: Control , again .. Leicester v Gloucester

    Hmmm. So ref announcing no decision is a cop-out (specially for WB), and I still think the decision needs to be very clear, which it wasn't. And what happened to giving the benefit of the doubt to...

    [Law] Re: Control , again .. Leicester v Gloucester

    And what happened to C&O?
    Was it C&O that the ball-carrier lost control? Judging by the number of replays the TMO needed to look at, it was not C&O, therefore a poor decision.

    After the Quins/Wasps match, Brown has said that he could have broken his neck in this incident, when he jumped for the ball, collided with Bassett and allegedly fell on his head/neck/shoulder. No...

    TMO v VAR

    Are we not glad that the TMO system, after early problems, now works pretty well? VAR is still a shambles, witness rugby tackles on Spanish footballers not penalised.

    Re: Morriarty Red (Argentina Vs Wales)

    When I was still refereeing way back in the 80s I was doing a Quins side against somebody; a Quins flanker (whom I subsequently met when he was a county coach) on three occasions put a choke hold...

    England v BaaBaas

    Any thoughts on the officiating? I thought that they were taken up by the occasion and failed to apply the laws, esp iro forward passes.

    Re: Trouble at Los Millos

    So why did WR originally say that the match should be replayed? It seems to me that they want the qualification issue to obscure the appointment issue, over which they seem to be taking no action...

    IF it was suggested to AG in the debrief that this should have been a PT, that may have influenced his thinking in the SBW incident.
