    [Law] Re: Offside or not

    Someone tell me what I have wrong here as a couple of posters have said that there is no offside from a charge down.

    Scenario 1: the charge down is ineffective....

    [Law] Re: Advantage and running out.

    You either have a cast iron habit of calling Advantage Over, or you don't.

    I'm pretty sure I bat close to 1000 on either calling AO or coming back for the decision.

    Let me devil's advocate for a second.

    You can argue it doesn't meet criteria for a tackle.

    [Law] Re: "Knock-on"

    I'd challenge this a bit. No9 throws a bullet. 10 never gathers it, but juggles and ultimately loses it forward. By your logic, because he never had control, he never lost control so no knock on.

    I suspect it's this one.

    [Law] Re: NO advantage call

    This worries me slightly, and is tantamount to Chopper-of-blessed-memory's idea that teams should be allowed to get their advantage.

    Maintain standards.

    Some referees, when they have Ladies or Youth, tend to lower standards and allow things that they wouldn't for adult men. "Ach, it's kids..." seems to be the mindset.

    Re: latching

    So they try to counter-ruck.
    Get a good hit, but he isn't blown off his feet because he's holding onto the player on the ground.
    Counter-ruck fails.

    Still good?

    [Law] Re: Placer Question

    if I've already awarded the kick, then by law can I change my decision?

    I'm with Dickie; disallowing the kick would be the kind of pedantry that gives referees a bad name.

    It MIGHT be, and I'd defer making any definitive statements without actually reading the handed down judgement - reporters aren't always great at getting the nuance of decisions right.

    [Ruck] Re: Jackaling

    Two opposing players arrive at the breakdown.
    Both decide to try to get the ball and squat to get hands on.
    They meet, shoulder to shoulder without binding on each other.

    Ruck formed.

  25. [Line out] Re: Fiji-Japan linouts inside the field of play

    I agree with OB. As long as some part of the foot is on the touchline, the player is complying with the law.

    From the pictures, it looks like this is what's happening, so there are no issues.
