  1. [Scrum] Re: New scrum law to be introduced immediately, apparently...

    I think if is defensible since it is an abbreviated form of opponents' heads.

    If it were written "opponent's" there would be an implication that each of their opponents has more than one head.
  2. [Scrum] Re: New scrum law to be introduced immediately, apparently...

    The thing that doesn't tend to be referred is the requirement for props to support their own weight on at least one foot. If they have both feet back they cannot do this.

    At community second team level I think there might be merit in trialling reduced team sizes too - maybe 12 a side with one centre and no flankers, just 8 in the back row. Better spectacle for the...

    Re: Next season's trials..

    The idea seens to be to create more space and to create gaps in the defence which *might* lead to more running moves and less collisions, making it less RL-like..

    I can see the off feet at ruck amendment being difficult to ref at grassroots level. 50:22 without ARs will be a nest of vipers too..

    Thats the thing though, I cant find anywhere in the 2019 law that says receivers can join the lineout. It does say throwers and their counterparts can - did they intentionally exclude receivers or...

    There is that, however we have just had the flowcharts to help deal with these. If we say its a high tackle its a red card for two reasons - the original hit snd the follow up arm.

    Sure - I referenced 18.27 as it demonstrates the 2019 laws differentiating the roles of player in the lineout and receiver.

    Re: Lineout quiz

    Except that the receiver does not appear to be regarded as "in the lineout" in the 2019 rulebook - look at 18.27.a and 18.27.d and there is a distinction made.

    Also, the definition of a receiver...
