    Re: Eng vs Aus - Disallowed Hooper try

    The problem with that argument is:

    In most games a lot of players are offside, and run offside lines. If they didn't, they won't be there to support/tackle/clear out rucks etc. So why do we not...

    Re: Eng vs Aus - Disallowed Hooper try

    From a 1 eyed english supporter, who was at the game...

    I think this is a situation where, technically the call was correct, but the empathy of the call was entirely wrong.

  3. [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Tuculet Yellow Card - collision with Mike Brown

    This is what I said above, and is what I saw. That is why I go down the RC route for this. Not the initial contest, but the arm hooking, and then landing on head.
  4. [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Tuculet Yellow Card - collision with Mike Brown

    I don't think "getting a hand to the ball" means you are in a position to catch the ball - how many times do you see a player catch a high kick with just 1 outstretched hand?

    But that said - this...

    [Law] Re: Law Book cut in half

    You could implement the current laws:
    1) Shoulders above hips
    2) Stay on feet
    3) Tackler to roll away
    4) Tackled player to roll away

    Then arriving players from both teams can try and win the...

    Re: Waybe Barnes Yellow Card Sexton 10

    Not seen a replay of this from the far side. So hard to tell why the ball was slow coming out. I expect the AR had a good view. IF you find the opposite angle view - feel free to post. Then we can...

    Re: yellow card for ball boy :)

    Unless of course you also red card the replacement TJs, and the ones who replace those etc........

    But that also brings us to the question - is terminating a game the same as red cards for all? I...

    Re: Waybe Barnes Yellow Card Sexton 10

    I saw it as a clear YC.

    Sexton got on the wrong side (for what ever reason), and then stayed curled up, with knees protecting the ball. He could have straighted his legs, or flattened them against...

    Re: That tackle, Red/Yellow/too early/one for the citing .......

    Saw it as landing on back, so not surprised yellow.

    BUT....

    It could easily be argued for red. Either by saying Daly was driven into the ground; or by saying it was Dalys action to roll his...
  11. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    I believe someone in the tackle zone can be contacted to form a ruck. I don't believe it needs to be mutual consent to form a ruck. I don't believe someone outside the tackle zone can be pulled in. ...
  12. Re: How many Red Cards would you consider before abandoning a game for brawling?

    Yes. And I have done so. Mass brawling, where it is clear that one or both sides are not going to get back to rugby without more incidents.

    Last occasion - only 1 side wanted to fight (losing...
  13. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    Loitering (not what I was referring to but will deal with this) - it is offside, and liable to sanction if you do any of those things listed in Law 11 - basically interfere with play.

    I'm out of...
  14. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    But the law for the 5m scrum is very different:
    (g) Offside for players not in the scrum. Players who are not in the scrum and who are not the team’s scrum half, are offside if they remain in front...
  15. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    Lets look at the law. It is (despite what others say) clear.
    11.5 Being put onside under the 10-metre law
    (a)
    The offside player must retire behind the imaginary 10-metre line across the field,...
  16. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    So what you are saying is that "off side in open play" exists in-goal, but that offside under the 10m law does not.

    But the entire rationale of the 10m law, is that you are deemed to be...
  17. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    Actually I've been banging that drum repeatedly....... (or even a team mate other than the kicker who has been played onside)

  19. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    The BS was aimed at the comment that defenders would have to climb the fence to be put onside. When all that has to happen is the kicker (or an onside team mate) has to do is advance and play them...
  20. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    What a lot of BS. If it happened on that field, the defenders would have to retire 10m, or be put onside by one of their team mates (which will happen before they get 10m). Lets say - the kicker, who...
  21. [Law] Re: But how is he supposed to defend ,Sir? Offside in-goal

    Some here are saying the Blue player has to wait on his goal line, after the kick.

    Under the 10m rule they MUST retreat until they are 10m from where the ball lands, or put onside (only by a...

  23. Poll: [Ruck] Re: Can you create a ruck by PULLING in an opponent?

    So to take an example from the England v Italy game. In the example (links on here somewhere) where Launchbury grabs the Italian #12.

  24. Poll: [Ruck] Re: Can you create a ruck by PULLING in an opponent?

    I am aware of that, hence my belief that in forming a ruck, the playing the man with out the ball law does not apply. So why is KML1 quoting it.

    The entire crux of this is: When are you allowed...
  25. [Ruck] Re: So how do we all feel about Italy's "no-ruck" tactic?

    The law clarification you quote is about joining a ruck, and not forming one. And there is a difference in the law in the 2. Forming requires contact, joining requires bind.

    The question in all...
