    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    Try this little experiment. In Folau's postings, replace the words "gay/homosexuals" with "Africans or women". Then read back the posts and ask if it is acceptable to say the things he has said,...

    Re: thoughts on this tackle

    I'm going to against the grain and say its fine. The arm draped over the shoulder is actually quite loose and there isn't much strength in it. If you look closely the tackler does most of the...

    [Law] Re: Legal drop goal?

    I wouldn't allow it and would treat it like any ball kicked off the ground that has gone dead through the dead ball line. I.e. a scrum at where it was kicked, opposition put in.

    It is similar to...

    [Law] Re: Referees view on this

    I don't see why this type of deception is illegal. As long as their is no obstruction it should be fine. Faking a pass in open play is fine, if the defenders fall for it then they are SOL.

    Re: gamesmanship in the chock tackle

    nope. Assuming the blue player had his hand on the ball before the maul collapsed, he does not have to release it. It is a collapsed, unplayable maul. He is not playing the ball on the ground.

    [Law] Re: New Referee looking for tips

    I agree. Most players barely know the rules, so a strong whistle and a confident tone will make you seem like the authority on the field.

    Fake it until you make it.

    [Law] Re: New Referee looking for tips

    Pros
    - great way to stay involved in the game
    - at least two free beers after the game (one from each team even if they were a horror to ref)
    - best seat in the house to watch rugby
    - challenging...

  10. [Law] Re: Like Goneva dummy, 10 deceives a penalty shot at goal but taps and goes

    As a ref I would ask them to clarify if they are going for goal or not. If they took a quick tap I would call it back and say "i'm sorry I thought I heard you say you were going for goal"

    If you...

    [Ruck] Re: Jackling - valid or too late?

    I had a similar situation, where the jackler would go in for the steal but would instantly scream "he's not releasing". He would do this the very second he touched the ball.

    I made a doublesided template that I print in bulk. I can get 4 games on one sheet. So I basically print out a stack and it has lasted years.

    [Law] Re: 'Keep the Score' vs 'Know the Score'

    I keep my scorecard as simple as possible.

    I mark 5 for a try, 7 for a converted try, and 3 for a penalty or rarely a drop goal.

    I dont keep a running total. If a captain asks, I pull out my...

    My fitness is generally good. I'm not as fast as the quickest back, but I keep up with play fairly well.
    It's more about the broken play with things changing so rapidly that throws me off.
