    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    Like I said, I never heard of it while playing. Possibly a Southern Hemisphere thing. Certainly that Aussie video explaning it is the first mention I had of such a ruling. As far as I know, it...

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    A mere 1248 replies. Both «*Where are you this weekend ?*» threads are more. 1264 and 1261 replies respectfully. I wonder how many were in Ian’s forward pass discussion. The notion of the...
  3. [7's/10's] Re: Europe's best target Tokyo 2020 qualification

    There was quite a bit of preventive all the same.
    I think the televised teamtalks at half time, at Colomiers are great.

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    Believe it, or not, I can find no trace of such a discussion.
    Perhaps Robbie deleted it, it wasn’t our finest hour.

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    I think you are confusing it with gridiron
    In American football, a hand-off is the act of handing the ball directly from one player to another, i. e. without it leaving the first player's hands....

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    I genuinely don’t get the USA’s fascination with firearms.
    This BBC article on the subject suggests it’s cultural, but that only leaves me more perplexed.

    Isn’t it more a $ thing?The annual...

    Perhaps you found one of Wireless’ posts. While the gentleman wasn’t a referee, it might be worth your while contacting Deaf Rugby and asking them. Alternatively, send him an email (although with the...

    Second Exception that proves the never say never rule? Luckily Scotland hadn’t printed their Orange jerseys back then or it’d have been a first, all Orange colour clash. Since, 43rd is the highest...

    This happened in the European Cup this season too. With (EPRC) imposing on Glasgow to wear the change strip against Cardiff in Cardiff. Skyblue/grey v skyblue exacerbated by blinding sunshine. Nice...

    Hadn’t thought of them. Good point. Netherlands, can be the exception that proves the rule, with a dark, or light change strip and Orange as their home colours. The point is to eliminate the real...

    Re: NZ WC shirts

    To be honest, I think the Scottish orange strip is a good solution. All teams should have an orange change strip. Then one or other team wears Orange when a colour clash occurs. End of the age old...

    Re: NZ WC shirts

    It’s presumably to be the white strip, like last time. If they had something entirely new, they’d have shown it at the launch, right?
    I have not found any images to support that, however this...

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

    I think Law clarification 2 2011 attempts an answer to this. ARU asked:
    When a maul collapses, are players who go to ground able to interfere with the ball as it is being made available while they...

    I think you were making a valid point. Clearly IF has an imaginary friend, who obliges him to say hateful things. The good news is that’s quite normal, bad news is he should have grown out of it...
