    [Law] Re: another kick at goial kicked for try post!

    The law book specifies the restart for anything not explicitly covered in law. It's a scrum.

    Re: Cavalry Charge

    I've never had to give a PK for it, I've twice warned players not to when I saw it coming. And once preventively whistled off before it happened in an U14 game.

    I don't even think it was competitiveness, just not seeing it as a problem and not making a fuss.

    This year I've had
    - an U15 player knocked out stone cold at a ruck, and the coach said "I'll take him off for ten minutes and see how he feels"
    - someone wandering aimlessly, who said colours...

    That was (long after the fact) my feeling too. However, good luck to any grassroots refs who have to make a snap decision!

    1 he was onside. Red was slow to return, as explained (older teams, late in the game)

    2 you're not allowed to take up position in front of a QTI if you were offside, I believe.

    Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory are the most usual suggestions to replace it, but they're overtly religious which is maybe not suitable for a secular country.

    [Scrum] Re: Kick off not 10.

    You would think so, wouldn't you?

    On a not unrelated note, I chose refereeing over coaching. :D
  11. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    So both parties sincerely apologise, but wholeheartedly stand by their original comments/decisions and hope that no-one was offended or hurt by them?

    That's quite complicated.

    It is a rare situation, in that there were 2 chasers in position before the defence returned - but the average age was over 40 for both teams :)

    [Tackle] Re: Open play, non-maul

    It sounds like a flying wedge, penalty to blue.

    If red players are not bound, tackling off the ball by blue, penalty to red (managing for materiality and flashpoints etc)

    Re: The crusade continues

    Saracen was a general term for Arab, in Europe. A closer translation of "crusader" in both meaning and use would be "jihadist".

    Agree with CR. What's interesting besides the number is the distribution. Are they all different offences, or clustered around particular behaviours? If the former, could consistency or communication...

    [Scrum] Re: Kick off not 10.

    I can only really see this happening at young and low youth level, at which point I'm fine with a straight punt if it restarts the game.

  19. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    There were some Dutch refs who appreciated it.

    "They have an odd sense of humour, so they're probably bigots too" is a piece of delightfully unreflective irony.

    Both, it's a hostile context. What I wouldn't necessarily card first time is "friendly fire" (although if I learn that's expected here I'd happily change my position). It's about context, not the...
