    I note that Rugby Australia said : we're not sure what answer WR would give to this, so we can't answer your question and will have to refer it to them

    I hope that
    1 they will say you can change
    2 in the 2020 Law Book they will change the Law to say "the kick is retaken"

    If you are saying that this is a piece of Law that is (or should be) widely ignored , then I am in agreement.

    Well perhaps we can both agree with OB that that is the 'surfacr meaning' of the text as written ?

    Re: Next season's trials..

    So what does this mean ?

    Delaying the movement of the ruck defensive line: reduce defensive line speed

    Does it mean enforcing existing Law .. or something new ?

    Re: retaken conversion

    Sanction: If the kick is unsuccessful, the kicker retakes the conversion

    It's pretty clear what the Law says

    If 'the kicker' meant the same thing as 'any kicker' (as you claim) then Rugby...

    Re: retaken conversion

    Excellent.

    For all the reasons people give in this thread the Law should be that you can change the kicker.

    Unfortunately the way the Law written is that you can't

    I do think they should change the Law, though . I would like to see it that if there is still time on the clock when the try is scored then we have a restart

    whatever. - in my view GoFundMe should be free to decline someone on the platform if they don't want them, regardless of what's in the T&C, so it's kind of moot.

    They say they took it down because he breaches the T&C
