    Re: YC return

    I would suggest in your latter point with a time off that this is technically incorrect. Time is dead and it has to be dead for both sides and you don’t gave grounds for refusing a returning player...

    [Law] Re: "Knock-on"

    In general terms if it was obvious it didn’t touch the arms then it must be ‘play on’ but if it wasn’t then by all means blow. I think it is one of those circumstances that we have to adopt the...

    Re: When is the ball out?

    It’s out of date. The other reference is the law book. !!

    Perhaps this video will give a better analysis, especially if you are able to compare it with WR guidance....

    Re: Wales quickly taken PK...

    Perhaps the Sunday newspaper should refer to the WR guidance videos rather than a fleet street photographer. I know it is difficult to give some credence to WR guidance at times but I think it trumps...

    Re: Wales quickly taken PK...

    Both. Nothing in law was wrong strictly speaking other than England had too many players on the pitch at the time. I.e. player had not gone off. But I wouldn’t be happy as his coach because it could...

    Basically I am agreeing with the referee and TMO. Nothing of any consequence happened.

    What is worse? An accidental kick or an accidental contact (charge) with shoulder?

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    It keeps being said that ‘he knocked him over’. It was the collision that knocked him over and not anything that KB did with intent. (I appreciate that that in itself is possibly not an excuse.) The...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    He turned away from the player. If that is not attempting to abort I don’t know what is. Perhaps he got frightened by the sight of a big bloke running at him?:)

    So why didn’t the AB13 follow his...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    In this instance we have two players trying to move to the ball in their own particular way. AB13 by running forward around the defender and KB by turning to avoid tackling and possibly to get back...

    It ‘looks’ as if KB ‘knocks down’ AB13 but it is simply a clash of bodies because of the timing. KB did not ‘lead’ with his shoulder or ‘charge’ him. He simply made a turn round and yes, may have...

    There are no HIA protocols at L3 and L4. Only L1 and L2. I.e. fully professional game.

    Sorry you are wrong. It was about 0.6-0.7 of a second if you are able to time it frame by frame. International sprinters are given 0.1 of a second to react to a gun legally and they are concentrating...

    I am sure there is a lot of empathy with your thoughts. The only thing I would say is that being totally stationary is not quite the same as moving slightly. At the same time I do sense a more...

    I see that Jack Goodhue is not playing this coming weekend because of injury. Perhaps it was the kick on KB’s hip that did it?:)

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    I must admit that in terms of possible foul play as a citing officer I’d be more interested in having a close look at the actions of A11 (59secs) just before B13 gets the ball, and maybe some...

    Actually if you freeze the replay of the incident you will see that B13 actually kicks KB on the hip in the process of kicking the ball. Accidental but reckless - red card. Try should be disallowed.:)

    He did not ‘lead’ with his shoulder, he was turning round almost on the spot. The B13 continued moving forward. There was contact with KB’s shoulder. You are saying that KB deliberately went towards...

    Any player is allowed to chose their own line to run at any time; attacker or defender. When doing so you mustn't do anything illegal. Here KB is actually facing away from the AB when contact is...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    If I was in court I would argue that the video shows a ball carrier kicking the ball away and then deliberately runs forward into the back of a defender who is trying to avoid tackling him. On the...
