    Re: Ireland v New Zealand 2

    World Rugby position as clarified is very clear on this. I got the brief last week on it last week from our guys. If you strike the head of an opponent then you will receive a red card. Cane leads...

    Re: Ireland v New Zealand 2

    Clearly we were. If you want to say it was knocked down fair enough but none of the all blacks were too fussed even after the was replayed the screen in the stadium.

    Sexton on is trying to...

    Re: Ireland v New Zealand 2

    Trimble made enough of an attempt to play the ball for it to be deemed a simple attempted catch. The way you phrase it is indicative of the red herring phraseology used by fans and pundits for these...

    Sexton bouces up to his feet after tackling Barrett and implores the ref to check when Jaco seems happy enough to raise the hand. Just one example. If you look at a lot of foul play situations at...

    Re: Ireland v New Zealand 2

    It's fair to say that Irish people are unhappy with the performance of the officials and yes I do believe they had an impact of the result of the game.

    As I suppose is natural the blame goes to...

    Re: Wales, v, Ireland - 14.03.2015

    Wales had a lot of the possession in the first 15 and he blew Ireland off the park. He was quick to penalise and gave the player little time to move away if they fell the wrong side. Correct calls in...

    Re: Wales, v, Ireland - 14.03.2015

    Barnes was very whistle happy in the first 10-15 mins.

    He set a standard at the breakdown in this time that was not deliverable over 80 mins and as such he failed to do so. He changed his...

    Re: Wade try under 22.4

    Reading some of the replies here it seems to be that people are advocating a degradation of the laws of the game to reward skilful players and actions over "normal play". These guys are ELITE match...

    Re: Wade try under 22.4

    Well I watched the video once on facebook with dogey resolution and was able to spot there was an issue around the ball when he placed it.

    If this is down the local club on a Sunday and you have...

    Re: Choke tackle

    It's probably more likely the tacklers or defenders will rip the ball and have it anyway if the attacking players do not engage.

    Re: Choke tackle

    Given the fact this has been pioneered in Ireland it is a hot issue and we get a lot of advice and feedback from the Union on it.

    In the Provincial Academies(especially Leinster) and at age grade...

    2 things from the Ireland England game.

    1) Goode trying to keep the ball in from a PK punt from Sexton. I know he was in touch no question however I have kinda forgotten much to my embarrassment if when a player jumps from "in play" over...

    It's interesting to see the reactions of referees from other Unions here. In Ireland this is always pulled up. You will be marked...

    A referee's pub debate

    I was at a gathering of refs recently when an old campaigner long retired put a question to a few of us.

    It goes like this:

    PK awarded and the team go for the posts. Kicker kicks it but through...
  19. Re: To be in touch or not to be in touch....

    Perhaps it is worth me clarifying the nature of the control of the ball. With his foot on the line he knock the ball up much as you could do in volleyball.
  20. Re: To be in touch or not to be in touch....

    It was a pretty high level with a national panel referee and many of the defending players did not question the decision. It was only the supporters that were unhappy, although there were 2 from the...
  21. To be in touch or not to be in touch....

  23. Re: Quick penalty tap kick - when are defenders penalise for not retiring 10?

    If red go quick and blue have not retired the 10 the blue players cannot attempt to stop the red player until he has gone 10 or he meets a player who is or was 10 at the tap. Often enough if a team...
