  1. Re: Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa

    Perhaps. Or perhaps teams will figure out that it's better not to have the ball and kick it away all the time. Time will tell.

    My issue is that I think the game - in particular the breakdown -...

    In terms of coaching, I'm not sure about Thorn, but Rennie and Penney are good coaches. Who in Aussie would be better suited than those two?

    [Law] Re: Whose knock-on is it anyway ?

    My view is that some are overthinking it. Red lost control of ball forward and it hit an opposition player.


    Red has knocked on and it's a blue scrum.
  12. [Law] Re: Penalty and tackler not back 10m - Yellow Card?

    As a general principle I agree with you. A YC is not automatic for me at all if it happened on the half way line.

    Would depend on the situation somewhat. Was it blatant? Did he retire at...

    Is there a chance the player was a league convert? If you catch the ball in the in-goal it's automatically back to the 20m in league.

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    Barnes finds a YC from a clear RC. He didn't even bother to refer it. I was thinking Barnes was a certainty for the final, but now I suspect he's reffed his last test.
