    [Junior] Re: Appointment

    Use the captains. At that age they may be used to the coach making all the decisions. Let the captains know you'll be expecting to see their onfield leadership. Find out if they are the regular...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    True story from my playing days.

    I ended up on the deck in the opposition in-goal chasing a ball carrier who scarpered and kicked the ball up-field. As I was getting back to my feet my team mate...

    Re: latching

    I guess I've got a bit of an equity issue with it. Red tackled player is off his feet so presumably out of the game but can still be an effective piece of ballast for a team mate. So isn't out of the...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    I think you are incorrectly inferring the implication.

    Certainly it is a "charge down" if "A player knocks the ball forward immediately after an opponent has kicked it". However, there may be...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    this is a good question that we have dabbled with in the past.

    Is a charge down a binary event (it either happens or it doesn't)? Can you have a partial charge down or is that like having a...

    Blue ball carrier is tackled and goes to ground presenting the ball in the conventional manner.

    Blue team mate is first at the breakdown and latches onto the tackled player in a strong and well...

    [Law] Re: Placer Question

    So you blow full time. 20 minutes later everyone's either having a beer or a shower. Light bulb moment for the ref: "the wrong bloke held the ball!". Everyone back on the field for a re-kick?

    [Law] Re: Placer Question

    I offered it as an anology FFS.

    Here's another one. No opponent in the tram tracks for a lineout. Nobody notices (inc me). I'm not gonna blow. Quick chat at next lineout.

    Yes of course but if he does change it and I don't notice it, then I'm not going penalise him. I'd have a word on the run or at next scrum.

    Similar. SH sets to feed the ball on one side of a scrum then moves to the other side. If I "forget" that he can't do that I'm not going to ping...

    he's pinged Blue for bailing out of the scrum by standing up (ie not pushing straight). That's the accepted signal for that event.

    TC, we will see this at the end of Aug in NRC. I assume oppos will need to be 10 metres and the kick will need to go 10 metres. But who knows?
