    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2019-20

    Interesting Cup Fixture.

    Peterborough 1st -v- Peterborough Lions

    Some local 'history' so should make for a tense afternoon, especially as Lions will be relegated back to East Mids1 East at...
  2. [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Saracens breaching salary cap, yet again.

    It is interesting the new Chairman is claiming that Saracens never blocked the publication of the PRL report. One suspects that perhaps there were some other club Chairmen shifting uncomfortably in...

    Re: advantage story

    The short answer is "It depends"

    In the scenario you gave I may have continued but then if the attack became stagnant because all that was happening was lateral movement then I'd have blown for...

    [Ruck] Re: "use it"

    Spot on explanation from NO.

    The #9 used his hands to bring the ball to the back of the 'caterpillar' ruck and so (under Law) the ball is out - under the up and moving mantra. However, IF the...

    Re: Pulling a player from the ruck/tackle

    Whilst it is specifically mentioned in the current Law book in relation to the Maul (11.11.b) it is no longer mentioned in the current rewrite of the LotG.

    IIRC it was specifically mentioned in...

    Re: Can I Clarify The Offside Line.

    Yes. The offside line for the 'defending'#9 is the rear foot of the flanker.

    There was a clarification/edict issued a few years back before the rewrite of the Law Book that didn't miss out/add...

    Re: Charging into A Maul

    Yes, the ball went right over his head and he overbalanced. IIRC the restart was a scrum to the team that kicked off on the presumption that - as no team were clearly in control - they were...
  9. [Law] Re: Penalty offence by team that didn't knock on while playing advantage for the KO

    As crossref says, go back to the original offence - even though it is only a scrum offence - unless it is serious Foul Play, although when you blow the whistle just give a quick explanation that...

    [Line out] Re: Receiver at a lineout

    LLP hits the nail on the head.

    For the receiver to join line after the ball has left the hands of the player throwing in means that either the ball is thrown in so slooooowwwwwllllly that the...

    [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Definition of ''in touch''

    I beg to differ. Watching it on BTSport it doesn't appear to cross the plane of touch, which is why the AR didn't raise his flag to signal touch.

    [Law] Re: Referees using player's names

    If you are "...having a word..." about an issue then I agree that first name terms doesn't look good, but in general play I see no issue.

    Re: 2020 - Scrum Engagement change

    Depends upon whether you want that clear "Set (Engage)" or not. I'm sure there are a lot of forwards who want that contest still, because the "Set" is still part of the contest, IMO

    Have seen it a couple of times at L6 and a quick reset and quiet word about maintaining gaps sorted it.
  20. [Line out] Re: Saracens vs Munster European Rugby Champions Cup

    One could also argue that the actions of the Munster medic sparked Sarries to up their game as well.

    I think that Marc Wakeham is suggesting that the response by EPCR is too light, in that the...

    Re: 2020 - Scrum Engagement change

    I won't as it is clearing up an anomaly from the preseason guidance about "pre-loading"

    If you look at the mechanics of a scrum engage and human structure then if you are 'ear to ear' then there...
  22. Re: Touch call before fracas (Exeter/Saracens)

    No. He did get a YC in the 1st half.

    Thought the whole incident was handled very well by WB and his team.

    Expect a clarification about the offending team being able to continue with 15 players...

    Re: Not contesting line out maul at all

    I view this differently. The opposing player attempted to tackle the ball carrier as he came to ground, and failed to complete the tackle.

    There is no maul formed and so this should, IMHO, have...

    Ermm. It depends.

    This all changed a few years back and I will try and clarify so please bear with me.

    In your scenario where is the ball? Also remember that no lineout player can leave the...
