    "Manage it".

    Red score in the corner. Red teammates retire to their own 10m to receive the kick-off. Wind blows the ball off the tee three times as the sleet comes at you horizontally. You turn...

    [Law] Re: Placer Question

    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.

    So . . . to thoroughly hi-jack this thread (which has...

    [Ruck] Re: Jackaling

    How it's played and how it's called in 7s (on the tour) is the best example of what I'd like to see. In XVs there are too many excess players with nothing better to do than flop onto a pile for a...

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum PK

    If there was no PK/FK offence then 19.25 could apply (although most refs would allow the ball to be played away if possible). If that was the case then which side gets the feed, possession or first...

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum PK

    19. Players may push provided they do so straight and parallel to the ground.
    Sanction : Penalty.


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

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum PK

    I was thinking the Argentina #8 unbinding and being offside as he digs for the ball. Is that the referee's signal? My WiFi speed is low so video is poor.

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

    For the OP: If the jackler can get hands on the ball without making contact with the BC support then the BC support hasn't yet "arrived".

    Re: Tackle change

    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.

    Definitely do not like the 50:22. The intended...

    [Ruck] Re: Jackaling

    If you have to engage an opponent (make contact) to get to the ball then he has "arrived" at the ruck and no hands are allowed.

    Same applies for the arriving BC support, he can play the ball back...

    Yes, not only legal but technically smart. With the outside foot well up the props are the pre-bind 'brake' and, most important, the inside foot can be further back so that the inside thigh is...

    I'll take a guess at "Why" . . . .

    Under the previous scrum engagement sequence of CTPE hookers would act as the 'brake' so their props could set up in the 'power' position and lean in to get the...

    Re: retaken conversion

    Back to the OP.

    The kick is to be re-taken. The kicker is the player about to take the kick. The previous kick is a no-op, it never happened so the kicker is the player now designated not the...
