  1. [Scrum] Re: New scrum law to be introduced immediately, apparently...

    It's not an offence in itself to bind short. But if there's a collapse on that side, then that'll most likely be the cause. So I'd not do anything until there's an actual offence.

    Re: what about this tackle --

    In all honesty, I watched the video a few times. And yeah it's difficult to see. The only thing I could see was the the ever so slight lateness. But as I said not late enough for me to PK the...

    I've said this with all pro sports people who play at high level. They don't ask to be role models. They don't ask to be high profile. They play a sport they love. They happen to be brilliant at...

    Re: what about this tackle --

    Committed to the tackle before the kick, maybe fractionally late but not to the point where I'd PK. Height was fine too. For me good tackle, would have no complaints if he did it to me.... other than...

    Re: Next season's trials..

    Indeed, this is why I was surprised to read this was approved for a closed trial. Also, where are the trials (other than the ones that have stated), being conducted.

    As a player, I object to being...

  7. [Maul] Re: After Maul Collapse. Can opposition play it with hands when off feet? Bath v Glos

    Yeah, but my point is that as a player, I know I'm not allowed to play the ball or tackle if I'm on the ground. So a Gotcha to me would be something that a ref can see is going to happen and not say...

    What do we think about the tackle height trail that was approved?

    Yeah, I was more commenting in general terms. I'll try and see the video on my break via my Mobile.
  10. [Maul] Re: After Maul Collapse. Can opposition play it with hands when off feet? Bath v Glos

    I can't see the video ATM, my work PC won't let me open it. But if a player is off his/her feet, he/she should know that he/she is not on their feet, they can't play the the call. So, there isn't...

    Re: retaken conversion

    But why? The is quite clear, no-one is permitted to handle the ball in a ruck. It doesn't say except the Srum half, so why do we allow it? It's common sense. Otherwise we'd be blowing for scrums all...

    I don't know cr, but surely this will just make the top defences move up even faster and uncontrolled to make up for having to wait. I can't think of anything that would benefit the game. If you hold...

    Re: Next season's trials..

    Did we not trial lowering the tackle height last year. This saw an increase of concussion to the tackler, so the trial was ended early. What's going to be the difference now? How are we going to safe...

    Re: retaken conversion

    So, as Dickie states above, the Law refers to "the captain" too. I take it you wouldn't allow a change of captain mid game? This isn't hypothetical situation, I have had my club captain nominate...

    Re: retaken conversion

    See @crossref - this is where I disagree, the Law isn't written that specifically. The kicker could be the person designated to take the kick. There is nothing to specify that it must be the same...

    No way IF could just be saying "Haha, they gave me a hundred grand. I'll take that thanks, suckers hahaha."

    Rubbish. The case is about does he have the right to voice his personal opinions, on his personal Social Media. It's got nothing to do with the rights of same sex marriage/relationships.
