  1. Re: Do you walk through the tunnel after the game?

    As a player never miss a tunnel. As a ref, I'll shake hands with all players who want to shake mine. But in my massive experience (sarcasm) in my 3 matches (U-16, Midland Cali reg Div 2 and Ladies...

    [Golden Oldies] Team Y/C

    Just a wee thought. We have the facility to issue a Y/C for repeated team infringements. Is it normal practice to count any offence in this or just ones that one blows for and penalises. Do we...

    I normally toss the coin and the home captain calls. Never been told anything different.

    [Tackle] Re: Tackle Release

    Gents, I think this is rather simple and is covered in the Law. The ball carrier must be held and brought to the ground. Nothing is mentioned about the tackler needing to go to ground. This to me...
  6. [Ruck] Re: Should the ladder/caterpiller ruck be outlawed?

    Disagree, if you're giving away a penalty every time you do it, then you'll soon stop it. Especially if you're giving away 3 points min each time you do it.

    Re: Suitably Trained and Experienced

    I had a player in a recent adult game. He was a replacement Prop, came on and was trying to bind the same place as his opposing THP so wasn't quite working. Stopped the clock, got the captain and the...
  8. Re: Do you allow 9's to dummy it at the back of a ruck ?

    Yeah, I know this. I can only guess the ref felt that he dummied it from the base of the ruck. As I said at the time that's what I think he'd blew for as that's what I thought I'd saw too. But it...
  9. Re: Do you allow 9's to dummy it at the back of a ruck ?

    [Ruck] Re: Off feet.

    This is what I'm thinking, as the support player's in a "position of strength" illegally. Yes it's technically not material if there no-one competing, but there's no one competing as there's no...

    So, I've been looking at the offside section in the World Rugby website.

    [Law] Re: 10m Law

    AH, so if they're closer than 10m they've got to retreat. Makes sense. They can go again once the catcher runs 5m or passes though yeah?

    [Law] Re: 10m Law

    Agreed. Further wee question on this. Lets say the Chasing player has been really fast and got under the ball (or the kick didn't go too far). So he's on the ground waiting for the ball to come down....
