  1. [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Barbarians v Argentina - Benvenuti interception

    I don't expect a lot of cards but I do expect the players' safety to be protected. It's a fine balance but I thought JL should at least have had a word about the boot to the hand.
  2. [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Barbarians v Argentina - Benvenuti interception

    ... and not carding the Argentinian who tried to kick the ball away from the player who had grounded the ball in goal, kicking his hand in the process and causing an injury, and long after the ball...
  3. [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Barbarians v Argentina - Rucked player gets up with the ball

    I think that covers it nicely :)
  4. [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Barbarians v Argentina - Rucked player gets up with the ball

    OK yes - here is chapter and verse:

    13.1 Players, who go to ground to gather the ball or who go to ground with the ball, must immediately:
    a) Get up with the ball; or
    b) Play (but not kick) the...

  6. [INTERNATIONAL] Barbarians v Argentina - Rucked player gets up with the ball

    Around the 78m/79m mark, Argentinian bc goes to ground near his own try line, is quickly rucked over by 3 baa-baas, possibly TWOL only, then he quickly gets up with ball in hand, and play on says...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Angus Gardner interview

    Kudos! That must have taken a lot of courage.

    I believe this can only increase respect for him, and for referees in general.

    Wonder if others will follow suit?

    Re: WAL v SA - TWOL vs Ruck

    Actually that's a very good question!! Tempted to agree with you now... is this another one of those cases where what makes sense on the ground isn't in the law book?

    Re: WAL v SA - TWOL vs Ruck

    Well yes - in that respect, pretty much yes 😁

    a) I think the law makers have made a genuine mistake - it is conceivable, they're not perfect (controls howls of laughter risking severe internal...

    Re: WAL v SA - TWOL vs Ruck

    Here's a pic from the 2017 law book to back that up:

    The laws don't explicitly say it's the hindmost foot of a player on their feet at that particular point in the laws, but a player on...

    Re: WAL v SA - TWOL vs Ruck

    Phew! Just my paranoia, then, LOL :)

    I think we are pretty much in agreement then. For me, the problem is that what makes sense intuitively, and what one should blow according to a strict reading...

    Ouch. Is that addressed to me? If so, I'm not on a crusade against the new law book, it's more like a crusade for clarity as to what the laws actually are, for the benefit of everyone involved, and I...

    I agree with your reading of the laws CR, but I'm not so sure I share your confidence in the committee which drafts them :)

    Re: 21.1.b grounding the ball

    Spot on. (And how can commentators - and even players - be so ignorant of this basic law?!? It's been this way for years...)

    Here's the 2017 law book - strangely the 2018 version isn't very...

    [Tackle] Re: Ruck - ball not on floor?

    Bit puzzled why you say "ball not available" - surely if it's right there, the scrum half could pick it out. We allow it in any other ruck so why not this one?
