    Re: latching

    Real scenario (maybe). Tackle, ball placed well back, keeps hand on ball, teammate latches, opponent counter rucks, hand keeps ball back. You've allowed the tackled player to lay there and keep his...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    And how does "Touched in flight" play into the Laws? Do you have a reference? If not, then it's a meaningless term re. refereeing the game.

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    The issue resolves itself if you consider whether the ball is going up from a kick (charge down so no 10m law in effect) or coming down from a kick (10m law in effect even when played by opponent).

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    Now we enter the realm of word play.

    Is it a "charge down" if the ball continues to rise after contact with the opponent but travels toward the kickers goal? I'd say "Yes" but if we get picky...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    If you apply the criteria for charge-down "Was the ball on the rise?" then it shakes out the differences.

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    I don't think we should look to knock-on law for a definition of charge down as it wouldn't be pertinent if the ball didn't go forward and therefor wouldn't be referenced.

    I think we can agree...

    This (tee carrier holding) has about zero material effect (unless he kicked). Far less than a SH switching sides or no ops in the tram lines.

    I interpret "straight" as as parallel to the long axis of the scrum.

    The 50:22 rewards a team for violating a rugby principle of play: continuity. This is a bad idea on several levels.

    Tackles at the waist will have one benefit: As there's no room for a second tackler to smother the ball we'll see more off-loads in the tackle.
