    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    The law has referred to hand/arm for as long as I can remember. Iím sure OB could probably provide the definitive answer!

    [In-goal] Re: Touch in goal

    I donít think there is one, except that I have seen it given that way. Bit of a head scratcher, but wondered if anyone else would have tried to justify it.

    No.

    [In-goal] Re: Touch in goal

    The reason for the different from a KO/restart is presumably, because it's the only circumstances in which the kicking team is obliged to kick.

    So if a defender does delay from a KO/restart, and...

    Re: [RWC] Eng v SA

    I might referee in England, but Iím Welsh, so this result is no skin off my nose.

    Re: [RWC] Eng v SA

    What a turgid game. Mapimpi and Kolbeís moments of individual brilliance aside, the match never came alight... and I think JG has a big role to play in that. I canít quite put my finger on the...

    [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Beaconsfield v Old Centralians for me, in South West 1 East (Level 6). Nice short drive from home.

    Japanese playerís eyes never left the ball. Hard for me to see this as anything other than the South African jumping his neck into the opponentís arm.

  18. [Law] Re: Law changes that have TRULY benefited the grass roots game

    Even more so, having each half start with a drop-out. The place kicks to start the match often left a tee in the middle of the pitch for several minutes of play.

    [Law] Re: Rory Best "try" today

    So are you contending that Best is not holding the ball at the point of grounding? If so, I think that would be an amazingly brave (and quite unexpected) call to make on-field.
