    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    I diasgree here, I have seen pitches that are safe to play overall, but due to sloppiness or issues with turf etc. Are unsafe for contested scrummaging. It’s a unique phase of the game with specific...

    [Tackle] Re: Brumbies vs Reds YC

    I see a dangerous shoulder charge, no attempt to wrap, I’m looking minimum yellow. Real time I didn’t see head contact so I would go YC for a dangerous shoulder charge.
  3. [Tackle] Re: Wales v All Blacks U20 - how is this not a red card?

    Probably because the tackler got into a good tackling position, was not looking, and impacted high as the bull arrived effectively collapsed down from where he might reasonably expected to be. If...

    [Tackle] Re: Hand off contacts with throat

    Under the current laws I think it’s accepts le, subject to the very subjective ‘excessive force’ clause. However I’m in agreement with several folk here, make contact with the eye area in a ruck and...

    [Line out] Re: Crusaders doing what they do best

    I think the debate about the 'forward' pass suggests that it is not clear and obvious, in which case should the TMO really be getting involved or be permitted to overrule the on field officials on...

    Re: Shirt Pulling

    Whilst I agree ruck laws are not always applied, surely there has to be a limit, and pulling players by the shirt away from the tackle area must be beyond that limit?

    Re: Shirt Pulling

    OK, so there's not a ruck, but why would we allow a defending player to pull people who are not in possession of the ball off their feet, either over a tackle area or even in open play?

    [Ruck] Re: Jackal vs hands in the ruck?

    I've seen nothing to that effect, and there is nothing in the laws to state this. If a jackler has hands on before the ruck is formed they are entitled to keep hands on, but as has already been said...

    [Scrum] Re: Flankers

    I don't agree it is 6 vs 3 as the 3 who may (or may not) be deep are still defenders available, just not aligned. But let's say you were correct why do we not have hundreds of tries scored from the...

    Re: No tackle..?

    Whilst i I disagree with those who say no offence, I agree there is no requirement for a new law, this is adequately covered by laws relating to dangerous play (if you view it as dangerous of course!)

    Nothing unusual about people selectively picking the parts of a book, study, law etc that support their argument. Doesn't make it right but it's hardly unique to the Bible.

  21. Re: Assisting the ball carrier when he is tackled
