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

    It's a silly definition.
    I can pop pass a ball using my wrists alone, ie without moving my arms.. .. it could go forward. It would be a forward pass .

    Yes but it doesn't really make sense to talk about the front row having immediate opponent (s). An immediate opponent is something a single person has, not a group of people

    That's a surprise seeing as it's safety law

    They are saying it's ok to risk your neck until the end of the season?

    So, does anyone think that by saying this you are calling him a liar and impugning his integrity ?

    Re: what about this tackle --

    I thought that the guidance Phil's society gave on what is "late" is quite good
    Would be useful to have similar guidance on what is "committed" (which is a mitigation when charging down and...

    Re: what about this tackle --
