    Re: Pitch Inspection - Jersey

    You may well know the referee who was involved with this game. Please would you ask him to explain why he considered the pitch suitable 24 hours before the game, but after 24 hours of sun and wind...

    I was in Jersey that weekend to watch that very match.
    I can tell you for absolute certainty it was the Nottingham coach/captain who declared the pitch was unsuitable to play. It was pretty muddy,...

    Couple of coaches' thoughts:

    Re: England v NZ

    IMO he seemed to call 'use it' during the second phase shove which is legally detailed in our dear book. He failed to differentiate from a 'first' shove and a 'second' shove, and completely missed...

    Re: Ouch, sore point?

    There's even a referee signal for it!

    Note it says ruck first in the narrative!

    Part of the reason collapsing a ruck has possibly been...

    Re: Ouch, sore point?

    Thanks OB. This is the law I pointed out to a colleague after I said pass me the law book and I'll show you. They smugly sat there and said 'shall we come back in a week, when you'll still be...

    Ouch, sore point?

    Should RFU coach educators have a very clear understanding of the lawbook before engaging on being educators to the next generations of coaches?

  12. Re: Offside under 10m law when kick goes backwards

    Good point
  13. Re: Offside under 10m law when kick goes backwards

    Not sure? Does that then set the 10m 'line' say 10m behind the kicker thus potentially rendering all players offside?
  14. Re: Offside under 10m law when kick goes backwards

    But The Umpire has highlighted the Law as saying kicked ahead. It's unusual, but in this circumstance, the kick was not ahead. I think T U is asking if this law should be applied at all in the...

    Requirements to for a maul to be formed

    This may well have been asked before, sorry about that!

    Previously the furthest up the pitch you could be (towards where player wants to score) was where the ball went out of play. Now it can be the 'line of touch'. If you imagine, a kick was put out on...
