    But there was no general threat to life in that game going ahead (drowning for one of the players?)

    That isn't to say some contingency may have been expected to have been in place this time

    oooo... good question. I can remember being pinged for it a few mnonths after it was introduced - brain fart - so id wager first half of the 2000s decade maybe?

    Re: [RWC] Italy vs RSA Tackle RC
