    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

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

    I appreciate the point you are making. I had thought that the responses on the first page had dealt completely with and resolved the initial enquiry and that the thread had moved on. Perhaps the...

    [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...

    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    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...

    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    I appreciate your point and a few years ago would not have made the comment I did. However, with guidance now being that you are in possession of the ball while ‘juggling’ and capable of being...

    [Law] Re: Thrown Backwards, Bounces Forwards

    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!

    I wouldn’t want to contradict my own...

    I always try to think (as I have said several times over the years on this forum) as to what is the intent behind the laws whenever there is doubt or confusion in the laws. If the attacking team puts...

    [In-goal] Re: Touch in goal

    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...
  11. [Law] Re: New Urban Myth - Only a prop can take a knee!

    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?
  12. [Law] Re: New Urban Myth - Only a prop can take a knee!

    So time was off anyway? Can’t see the problem? He can’t be time wasting if time is off.
  13. [Law] Re: New Urban Myth - Only a prop can take a knee!

    If you weren’t suspicious until the third time then you had no reason to stop the clock up until then. If on the third one you are suspicious then stop the clock and warn that you are getting the...
  14. [Law] Re: New Urban Myth - Only a prop can take a knee!

    Cynical time wasting is not okay and you should certainly take time off to deal with the matter and warn, but when you are expecting players to participate in actions that constitute ‘play’ then time...

    I would say it depends on the level of the game or the league/friendly nature of it.

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    No. JG said there was nothing there and it was RM’s own fault. So having seen it it is technically an error since he was in the air.

    Very valid question. And a difficult one to respond to succinctly within a forum situation. It is one that is occasionally raised at local society meetings.
