    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    That’s a perfectly valid point but I assume that in your scenario the foot soldiers would engage the lone cavalryman at a range which would ensure that he (or she) was brought to ground in good time....

    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    A cavalry charge could happen anywhere on the field as Phil E points out however in practice it only ever happened at 5m penalties because there was no point using it elsewhere as frankly the chosen...

    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    I have no idea but maybe because the 12 year old who drafted it can't remember what cavalry charges actually looked like and didnt know his arse from his elbow.

    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    What's interesting about this thread is whether or not the move involves a single player or a line of players is a bit of a red herring. The move, known as a cavalry charge, was set up with the scrum...

    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    For what it's worth I manage it the same as Rich_NL. If it is being lined up I stop it prior to the tap although as I mainly ref youth rugby it is an easier sell.

    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    I see your point Didds but my basic argument is that the forces are not the same. In most (but I conceed not all cases) the receiver for a pop from a ruck almost never achieves full speed prior to...

    [Law] Re: Tap penalty to player already running: allowed?

    Having started playing before this move was outlawed I saw numerous defenders knocked out defending short penalties (concussion hadn't been invented then so it was all right). I consequently feel...

    Are you watching the right clip Dickie? There's almost continuous contact with the head from Biggar's left arm from shortly after initial contact until Itoje's head bounces off it on landing

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    L'Irlandaise's post looks pretty conclusive to me.

    11.5a A player knocks the ball forward immediately after an opponent has kicked it (Charge down).

    If World Rugby decides that it needs to...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    The very name seems to suggest that a charge down should really only count if the ball is in fact 'charged down'. Surely any attempt to 'charge down' that results in the ball actually continuing...

    Crikey, wish I'd never mentioned it

    That said, and I'm wondering how to phrase this, but when you're the 'dominant collider', you do make sure you make your mark for the next time round.

    I appreciate the opinions of those who have commented. Maybe I'm overly sensitive to cheap shots as an ex fly half but I just don't think Beale's actions were unavoidable. Too often we accept that...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    Minor point but wouldn't it be more logical to locate this in law 19.11 as it applies between the bind and set calls or am I missing something?

    Given the fine margins in this scenario I wouldn't waste too much time worrying one way or the other. The only thing I'd say though is there is a difference between being behind the 10m line when the...
