    Re: the Chiefs

    It just does not work and was done for the wrong, political, reasons (which I'll not bore you with). The only part that is appropriate is the business is likely to cause a dose of "the blues" in its...

    Re: the Chiefs

    Pirates / seafarers have more of a connection. Two quick thoughts I'm sure a bit of research could come up with plenty more. Jut no need to be as pathetic as the "CARDIFF BLUES" !

    [Law] Re: Lifters lift a teammate to block a PK

    It's not a contest, restricted or otherwise. That was my point not the ability to charge as opposed to lift.

    Surely conversions an not "restricted" contests they are not contests in any sense of the word. Regarding a Penalty, once the ball is kicked it depends whether it is a kick at goal or touch. For the...

    [Law] Re: Lifters lift a teammate to block a PK

    It is also something of a risk to lift a player in a dynamic situation. Players chasing the KO making a genuine FAIR and LEGAL attempt to catch the ball have two or morplayers to potentially colide...
  11. [Scrum] Re: Advantage applied if ball deliberately kicked out of scrum tunnel

    I can only refer you to the Law you quote: 7.3b. Please note that the law does not refer to: "hy the ball came out of the tunnel?". It merely says if it does, come out of the tunnel, NO ADVANTAGE.

    It's a great pity. As a piece of music it is outstanding when sung by a good choir that now how to sing "free flowing" music of its origin. The trouble is "white men have got no rhythm" and it ends...

    [Law] Re: a few new boy questions

    This is where you need to be careful. No pick up by the 8 at an uncontested scrum is not a myth here in Wales. It is law. So I'd be careful labeling it a myth at all. It is true, or not, depending...

    It is play on!
    So the side "accepts the kick off in to in-goal and the player, let's say, passes the ball or runs towards his post 15 metres. AND THEN grounds the ball. What do you do?

    Well you...

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    I mark the non-throwing sides line. I tell the throwing side to set the gap (don't take the mick) if they stand too close so the have no gap that is their problem.

    Of course, I was just pointing out Treadmore's point was possibly a little naive.
  25. Re: Enforcement of current law - refereeing at the breakdown March 2020
