    [Kit] Re: Neoprene lifting supports

    Do you tell most forwards to remove lifting blocks in your games? I'm not saying this is wrong, it's just not in line with most other refereeing I see so I'm interested in if you treat this...

    This times as many as you like. We all know it is impossible to see everything in the game, either he was looking elsewhere, of from his angle in real time it looked OK. As crossref points out this...

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

    I don't allow a coach to talk to me at half time, and I won't talk to them directly after the game. I shake hands, clap players, walk off the pitch, shower, then I'll talk to a coach, and usually...

    Re: Hooper on Biggar - Why No Card?

    Agreed, I saw no mitigation to avoid at least yellow. The more you watch it the more it was late, targeted, no arms and a deliberate attempt to put a big, illegal hit on a key player. If this was a...

    I’d rather things go a little too far with strong encore emend which can be rolled back if required than continue with the present continual use of high tackles,’shoulder charges, forearm leads and...

    [Law] Re: Ball in or out ruck ( england v tonga )

    I didn’t see this incidents but I’ve seen plenty where the ball in just beyond the hindmost part and called still in the ruck, or something that really gets my goat, the caterpillar but with players...

    [Maul] Re: Maul Law 16.8 & 16.9

    This is a really interesting point and you have to use your judgement

    As we know in a collapsed maul players do not have to move away, and can pretty much fall where they want, however if a...

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

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    I think we can all agree that the law is unclear in this situation. As such I fall back on what does everyone expect? In my experience, everyone expects any form of touch from an attempted charge...

    [Tackle] Re: RSA vs Africa

    This is a very interesting thread. Clearly there is a law against tackling a player in the air, however in my view this law is aimed at players jumping for the ball.

    Isn't it illegal to drive the scrum up, therefore penalise SA under that law? Regardless of whether their scrum is dominant or not, if they demonstrate that dominance using illegal tactics they...

    [Tackle] Re: Tackling when feet are off the ground

    I don't like this jumping into or over a tackle, however there is no specific law against it. We would have to fall back on the dangerous play laws as a catch all. I'd be prepared to do that but I'd...

    [In-goal] Re: Using your foot to prevent a try

    Law reference? I know you can hell the ball backwards out of a ruck but I'm not aware you can heel if backwards out of someones hands.

    Re: Samoa v USA

    I can't answer for Crossref but I'm not sure the question has any relevance, a player would not be lifting a foot like that 10m away from another to get the ball.

    Re: Samoa v USA

    Dangerous play, YC. In my view it does not matter whether he played the ball cleanly out of the BCs hands or not, this is inherently dangerous and covered by law, I’m going to use that law.

    I know there are ways to de escalate a situation, but it’s a pretty poor show if we ever criticise a referee if they’ve been the subject of an assault. That is all the responsibility of the player...

    If it doesn't go 10 I'm going with scrum of re-kick options, regardless of whether it goes directly into touch or not. 12.8 is after 12.6 and I interpret this as if the kick goes beyond 10 and then...
