    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    When I started I just used to mark the line of touch and assumed players would stand at the required distance either side of that. My mistake. I quickly found that, nearly always, whichever player...
  3. [Ruck] Re: Counter-rucking against the scrum-half at the breakdown "playing the 9"

    If you legally drive a defending player off a ruck and the 9 gets flattened as part of the collatoral damage I dont think thats playing the 9. You've engaged the ruck iaw the laws imo

  5. [Line out] Re: At what point can a player leave a lineout to be passed to by the scrum half?

    As OB points out the wording in 18.29d is relevant here. "Any player in the lineout may leave the lineout so as to be in a position to receive the ball, provided they remain within 10 metres of the...

    Re: FizzBuzz

    Credit to all involved but the game does seem to lose some of the tension if not played after 8 pints, with Chief sneak bleating in the Captains ear and having already completed games of fuzzy duck...
  7. Re: Enforcement of current law - refereeing at the breakdown March 2020

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    I think Joe Marler is over thinking his bid to become a character. In support of Didds' stance, lots of things that used to happen on a rugby pitch, or in the bar afterwards, or on the bus home are...

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

    To be fair there aren't many but, since its topical, how about Alun Wyn Jones knocks on whilst going to ground to retrieve a ball and on regaining his feet Marler introduces himself in the manner he...

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

    I'd give the same answers as Crossref to your specific questions but I guess you are referring to my earlier question. The point I was making is that I don't understand why you would be sure that the...

    I agree with what you say Didds and Eddie Butler can obviously be dismissed as not relevant because he played in black and white when Wales were decidedly average but I'm really surprised at the...

    [6N] Re: Wales v France - Did the ref bottle it?

    When I played I realised that very few participants knew or understood the laws of the game and, if you did, you had an advantage which could be exploited. Not much has changed it seems. The debate...

    who’d be a referee

    To come straight to the point I don’t think this has been a good week for the 6 Nations or rugby in general. Whether it was Matt Carley in Cardiff or Jaco Peyper at Twickenham, the level of abuse...

    [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.

    Re: 22 Drop Out - Not taken properly

    I played in a game years ago where following the award of a 22 drop-out our hooker actually tackled the player who was running with the ball to take it quickly. Afterwards the hooker said he couldn't...

    [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.
