    Re: Bound in but not bound (Maul)

    16.10 makes it clear (assuming he joined legally) that he is OK: All players in a maul must be caught in or bound to it and not just alongside it.

    What he does after isn't prohibited in law.

    [Law] Re: Place of Conversion kick

    Yes. Because if it's a muddy mess, the ball won't bounce. Which is kinda important for a drop kick.

    Re: Pulling a player from the ruck/tackle

    "We" allow gator rolls because TPTB have told us.
    There is a number of us who believe that they are both illegal and dangerous.

    Re: advantage story

    Because at some point, if they're only getting 0.5m under pressure, you're going to decide that the advantage isn't real. SO you bring it back.
    In my experience, Coaches, Ref Coaches and players are...

    In some regions there are some variations with regulations which stipulate no hand off above shoulder height.[/QUOTE]

  11. [Law] Re: Penalty offence by team that didn't knock on while playing advantage for the KO

    I tell 9 and the captain before kick off that if they don't want the advantage, just tell me and I'll blow.

    [Law] Re: Hand Off or Fend to the face/head/neck

    Until you have your reasoning square in your head, don't do this. For change to happen, there needs to be a good reason.

    The only reason to stop the hand offs is excessive force - in other words,...
  14. Re: Scrum Law 19.28 - scrum half position - your advice please

    Sorry, I disagree. I coach a 9 who starts legal and then goes to his back foot as a default defensive position in certain field areas. He's quick enough to beat the heel and pick up.

    Your question was badly worded and didn't make it clear that these things were simultaneous. Your accusation of sidestepping is incorrect and offensive.

    Yes I would red card anyone who shoved a TJ.
    Your second question is circumstance contingent.

    You're the one ignoring law. So let me ask you:
    Would you, or would you not, red card a player who...

    Re: The crusade continues

    Absolutely right Ian. Numbers only give you...numbers. They don't speak to things like acceptance, integration or any other non-quantifiable measures.

    I'm not twisting words, you're abrogating your responsibility under Law and not protecting Match Officials.
