    [Junior] Re: Knocked out but played on

    At this level of game, doctor or no doctor, if I was assessing this referee I’d rip into him/her in the report and if in our society make sure he/she had some extra training. At the community level...

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    Well for one thing I turned up to a full car park and parked in the only space that was vacant. The club president’s space. I was told, not very politely, to move my car and park on a main road. The...

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    I wouldn’t be abandoning the game because it would never have started. They are very welcome to get another referee to start the game if they want to. It just wouldn’t be me because I’d be in my car...

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    I thought that what is outlined above was the standard procedure. Whether it is as an individual ref or team of three. My procedure was more or less five minute warning, followed by two minutes or...

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    Depends on how supportive your society was. I would not want to be a member of a society that allowed its members to be messed around. Why brave? We referees are doing it voluntarily. In a voluntary...

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    If you knew me you would know it wasn't a bluff, I assure you. I don’t mess other people around so I don’t expect to be messed around myself. Quite straightforward.

    Yes forgot that one. But I have always thought it was a rather difficult one to apply. If I was coaching a side I would suggest they release the ball away from the nearest opposition or hold on a bit...

    Can you take a QTI if the was taken into touch by an opposition player carrying the ball? Usually it is only from kicks. I think that if it was allowed we’d soon end up with incidents of potential...

    You are right OB... it is not clear and that is why I posed it as a question. The law you quote refers to perhaps a normal lineout setup I would think but wouldn’t swear to it. At a QTI we don’t have...

    At a lineout, quick or ordinary, don’t offside lines apply, I think is the crux of the question?

    Initial movement is back. Physics makes it move into a lateral position afterwards. Play on.

    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    There will be a few members of this forum that played when a ‘readjustment’ (juggling) was not permitted and you had to make a clean catch from a pass (or catch?) and might have some empathy with...

    Ob... I don’t think we are far from each other. I just take my position from the fact that the tap back from a knock-on is difficult to adjudge unequivocally. How long must the hand be in contact...

    By being capable of knocking the ball back does indicate a degree of control doesn’t it?

    [In-goal] Re: Touch in goal

    No, my bad wording. I was agreeing with you in relation to 21.17 and equated tackling with holding up. Too much rushing and brain not co-ordinating with hands!

    If he ran around and eventually grounded the ball he has made it dead. If he runs around and goes into touch he has made it dead. It’s the same thing. Imagine that if he ran around and was tackled...

    [Maul] Re: Question on driving maul at a lineout ??

    Clearly the responses on here confirm that you are correct. What concerns me is that other referees have been penalising with a PK. It sounds to me that an urgent ‘refresh’ is required at your next...

    This may not be of relevance to this specific scenario/thread but I am intrigued as to what level/type of games these ‘many games’ are?
