    Re: Pacific Islands

    How about you're captured for a period of one year for each cap you earn, and the capture period starts cooling off from date of last cap? That way, some journeyman who earns two caps one autumn,...

    RWC 2019 cancellations

    Well, itís happened: https://www.rugbyworldcup.com/update

    Never mind the arguments about a tournament in typhoon season or reschedules. Is there any other means besides a scoreless draw that could...
  4. [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.

    [Tackle] Re: Russia vs Samoa - High Tackle Yellows

    We have an emerging consensus, to which I also subscribe.

    For me the first had just about enough mitigation that I can accept yellow, as the ball carrier's head wasn't just low, it was in the act...
  7. [Maul] Wales v Georgia - penalty try not given from collapsed maul

    46 minutes in, Wales rolling maul is trundling at speed toward Georgian line. Collapses <5 metres short, penalty advantage signalled. Biggar cross kicks, but Williams fumbles as he dives to collect...

    [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.
  9. [Law] Re: Wales v Georgia Gareth Davies deliverate knock-on or not

    I think LP made the right call, and much credit to him for admitting a mistake and moving on.

    In this instance:

    the ball went backwards
    Gareth Davies was also travelling backwards
    GD's...

    [Law] Re: Rory Best "try" today

    He doesnít need to have downward pressure if heís holding the ball - 21.1(a) only requires him to hold the ball and touch the ground, which it seems clear he did, albeit briefly before a Scot lifted...

    Did Buckingham v Windsor yesterday; both teams promoted together into South West 1 East. Belting game (5 tries to 3), but 25į made it hot work!

    [Tackle] Re: Arm protect

    Couldn't agree with this more. If the healing forearm truly needs a thin bit of padding, then said forearm isn't ready to go back out onto a rugby pitch.

    [Tackle] Re: Arm protect

    It's not a support (4.3a), as the forearm isn't a joint.

    It's not a bandage, dressing, thin tape, or similar material (4.3h) as it's padded.

    I am struggling to see this as anything other than...

    [Tackle] Re: Arm protect

    I would say no, it's not allowed - arm padding of this type does not appear as one of the permitted "additional items" of clothing under Law 4.3 or under Reg 12.

    In any case, why are you (or...

    Re: Law Change - 3.3

    Pragmatically, I'm going to apply this to "possible" or "suspected" head injuries as well. In the community game, that's the only sensible approach to take. There might be bigger implications in...

    I think both - not sure it makes sense otherwise.



    This is a really good point, and one I had overlooked. Now Iím looking forward to it even less :-(
