    [Tackle] Re: Clearout at the tackle

    Who'd have thought that the answer to this mess could be found by actually enforcing the laws? Can't believe the answer has been staring us all in the face and yet no one suggested it previously.

    [Tackle] Re: Not really a tackle but a slide..

    Thats just a collision in open play. I'm not saying I wouldn't award a penalty but if you did, under what law would you do so.

    Re: 22 Drop Out - Not taken properly

    Think the relevant law is 12.12c - A 22 metre drop-out must cross the 22-metre line. sanction: The non-kicking team has the option of the kick being retaken or a scrum.
