    Re: RWC 2019 cancellations

    I'm sure a number of Heineken cup games have been rescheduled in recent years to the next day due to frost/snow.
    You would have thought a 24/48 hour postponement would be perfectly reasonable for...

    Should the game clock be reset?

    I've seen a couple of tries ruled out today for earlier infringements called by the TMO or requested by the TO3.
    Surely there is a case for resetting the game clock from when the offence actually...

    Re: one flag up, one flag down

    We only get appointed ARs in cup finals or the very occasional game where we have spare refs i.e. once or twice a year. I've never been trained as an AR and I assume most haven't.
    There is a clear...

    At the moment, we don't find out until Friday, we are that short of refs.

    [Law] Re: Ben vs Lei - Red card (Jumper in the Air)

    For me, stop play, looked like genuine injuries. Bothe players going for the ball, blue in possession when I stopped play, scrum blue.

    Just watched the game and I didn't think there was a colour clash and I don't think any players did either!

  11. [Scrum] Scrums taking too long in professional game. Time to stop the clock.

    We are regularly seeing scrums taking about 2 minutes to get an outcome despite scrums being a lot more stable than they were a few years ago.
    Nobody wants to see this.
    Typical example today when...

    Re: Hooper on Biggar - Why No Card?

    Biggar's injury was caused by his own poor tackle technique. Used to tackle like that myself to protect a dodgy shoulder.
    I wonder was he protecting the one that was injured in the hooper hit?

    [Law] Russia v Samoa touch down with foot?

    2 minutes into the game Russia kick ball into in goal where it stops.
    Samoa 10 stands over the ball and "touches it down" by standing on the ball!
    Poite blows and gives a 22!

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    My pet hates which are just ignored.
    1. scrum halves taking way more than 5 seconds at the back of rucks when ball is available and refs have said use it.
    2. Scrum halves clearly dummying at back...

    [Law] Ball played man laws or rules?

    Following on from the offside or not question there seems to be an opinion that if you do not intentionally play the ball then it doesn't count.

    [Law] Re: Offside or not

    Even if it was a chargedown becket, G7 is offside, if he plays the ball. If it comes to him at speed and he instinctively caught it, I'd probably give accidental offside, scrum.
