    [Line out] Re: Quick Throw in ?

    I might be wrong in law, but if a dog ran over and touched the ball I would probably not allow a QTI.

    Mark me down if you must.

    Sure. And my answer is to allow the kick.

    [Law] Re: Placer Question

    Nope I can't.

    I am afraid I would not disallow a kick if I failed to notice this. Mark me down if you like. However last time I saw this happening, I simply asked a player to hold the ball...

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    Why would there be an increase in any of those events?

    It should also be stated that out of NZ's 120 parliamentarians, the vote in favour of the buy back was 119-1. Only NZ's far right wing party objected. (with 1 solitary MP - who is actually in...

    The problem is that the ones in the soccer clip were almost all offensive. The NRL ones were basically OK though I do not think a player should be leaving the field and going into the stands. He...

    I would YC all of them.

    I would also RC anyone that came up to me and crowded my space.

    Re: RIP James Small

    What is the story there?

    I vaguely remember some unpleasant stories about James Small but I don't recall what they were or if they were any more than gossip.

    [Ruck] Re: Advantage

    Just 3 brainfarts from the referee in quick succession.

    He appears to call the ball out (correctly - though whether he needs to say it and keep saying it is debatable).

    However he then...
