    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2019-20

    Did two local grammar schools 1st XV yesterday, Slough 2's on Saturday vs Tadley. Two very different games each with their own challenges.
  2. [Law] Re: New Urban Myth - Only a prop can take a knee!

    My management technique (no use while the guy is refusing to begin till the time is on) is to free kick / penalise at the scrum engagement. Incidentally, do you realise that the sanctions linked to...

    [Scrum] Re: Back row angle at scrum

    I played LH. The flanker is not bound onto me, but onto my second row. His shoulder is pushing on me. If he angled in (in my case from the right) that would very likely push my backside inwards...

    Re: Jap v Sco - No Red Card?!?

    I reckon the framework and protocol suggest that there is no need for a tackle to be near the head, there is the rest of the body to aim at, so any tackle which ends up there can be sanctioned as it...

    [Assistant Referees] Re: TJ report of abuse - action?

    [Law] Re: In front of the quick tap

    OK then, is there a protocol we can share with coaches so they can teach their players how to defend quick taps without giving away penalties? It would avoid a lot of conflict.

    [Law] Re: In front of the quick tap

    That's why I am clear that the defender must not interfere with the ball carrier or his options, that proviso makes it work.

    [Scrum] Re: Great try or illegal dummy ?

    The actions of the red scrum half cause the white team to start their run up before the ball comes out, so its a free kick.

    [Line out] Re: Help with this law ?

    For me, change the word "and" in #6 to "so"... then it seems to make sense. If it doesn't go 5 because of a cock up, its a scrum, if it doesn't go 5 because someone played it, its a free kick.
