    Re: Spitting - Red Card?

    Thanks I did not know that (to be fair I wasn't looking).

    These days I still ref but my main contribution is on a judicial panel.
  2. Re: RWC NZ vs Ireland.. henshaw's fluffed grounding.

    Do you think it should have been advantage over in the micro second before he dropped it?

    Maybe you are right, but that's not how advantage in the 22m is reffed in practice. PK advantage in the...

    Re: Spitting - Red Card?

    100% red card every time.

    Call it unsportsmanlike conduct and physical abuse. Sounds like there was also verbal abuse after that too. I understand police deem a spit an assault, so perhaps...

    [Law] Re: PK and time

    Didn't he say it was because the PK was awarded before 39 minutes - therefore the one minute allocated for the kick did not take the time over 40 minutes. Owens said something similar in the NZ game...

    [Law] Re: Knocked dead by knock on ?

    Both scenarios are explicit in the laws.

    No room for argument in my opinion. Unless/until the law is changed this is a settled issue.

    Re: World Bowl

    Those are some good match ups. The semifinals would be great as well. This would be marvellous innovation for the lesser teams and enable them to test themselves against teams on their own level.

    Re: World Bowl

    I think it's a good idea personally. Clubs would object, so it probably won't ever happen.

    I remember in 2011 it was a real shame that the pool stages ended and there was a week between games...

    Re: End of Game - Did I get it Right?

    There was a thread on this a while back. I was in the minority when I said that play should have restarted.

    This happened in a Super Rugby game in the last 2-3 years. On that occasion the ref...

    Re: RWC QF predictions

    Looks about right.

    I would have Gardiner in favour of Garces.

    I would not give Ben Skeen a TMO gig.

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

    Lifting in lineouts has been wonderful for improving quality of ball.

    No passing back into 22m has meant the ball is in play longer.

    YC's have given refs an intermediate option to deal with...

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    Call looked fair enough. He had warned the halfback already for the offence. In any case that scrum feed was not just crooked, it was obscene. Unlike most people here I normally...

    Agreed.

    I find it hard to believe athat Poite and Garces could be in the top 4 referees at this tournament. The three you mention are all better for a start. Not sure about the rod.

    Re: England Argentina

    He was good.

    I thought Lawes should have gone for 10 minutes for his challenge. I also thought that NO let the Argies be offside for most of the second half.

    Yes I agree.

    I don't mind the pre-game chat.

  19. [Tackle] Re: I wonder how the game would be if we, referees, actually implemented the Tackle L

    I don't see the problem with how the laws at the tackle are currently being enforced.

    This aspect of Rugby is good at the moment. Leave it alone is my view.

    Re: Accidental Offside?

    I think if the ball clearly comes out of the ruck and then goes back into the ruck I am going to play accidental offside.

    If the ball is always still in the ruck (or it is arguable) I will play...

    Re: Rugby is officially dead

    Look at what Genia is doing. He has picked up the ball, paused, then braced himself to throw the pass. Go back to when the ball is out of the ruck and then see where Red 9 is.

    Agreed. I don't believe that should be a RC. The ball carrier was knocked to the side by the first tackler and it threw the tackler off. No doubt Barnes will be praised for following protocol, but...

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    I watched the second half and I thought Gardner was good. The PKs against Ireland were all legit (especially the offsides). There was perhaps one or two PKs that could have been blown against Japan...
