    Re: Henshaw on May

    Didds - the law reference is 15.D and May dives onto the ball which is still on the ground - Cooney hasn't yet lifted it.

    May is standing at the side of the ruck, he wasn't a tackler and his angle...

    Re: Henshaw on May

    2 glaring errors in 1 phase.

    May is at the side of a ruck and dives on top of the ball as Cooney is assessing what to do with it. PK Green 100 times out of 100.

    After the kick chase, Henshaw is...

    [6N] Re: Wales v France - Did the ref bottle it?

    For the deliberate KO claim, I felt it was a tackling motion the whole time and therefore not an action intended to kill the game. For me the key was the French player's focus - opponent and not...

    [Law] Re: Uncontested lineout drive/ maul - penalty?

    My conclusion is that the ref made an error. My logic:

    No maul formed, ball at front with carrier - players allowed to move forward according to the directive.

    Defenders left a gap for them to...

    [Tackle] Re: Open play, non-maul

    OK - I disagree that a flying wedge is barred in open play. I do agree the wording needs to be made more clear.

    [Tackle] Re: Open play, non-maul

    A flying wedge is only applicable when a penalty or free kick is awarded.

    It doesn't cover open play.

    I have to say this is the first time I've ever seen this happen on a pitch.

    [Tackle] Open play, non-maul

    So in my game Saturday:

    Open play, Red pass to a big second row in the middle of the pitch, and he's immediately joined by 3 teammates in a would-be maul formation. Ball at the front in the hands...

    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    The incident in the Bath - Ulster game - the ball leaves the players hands backwards and is not touched by anyone else before hitting the ground and bouncing forward - it's play on.

    So may I take this to read that you agree that current form is not the key factor?

    In this case - and I see no difference between the elite game and we mortals out in the sticks - my feeling is that if the ref is happy with the kick then we play on.
