  5. [Assistant Referees] Re: Pushed by player - my fault for being in field of play?

    Regardless of whether you’re a TJ or an AR, Law 6 defines you as a match official. You are entitled to the protection that that status affords. Lay a hand on a TJ and off you go. No question.

    [Law] Re: captain asking not to play advantage

    It might not have been necessary in terms of strict compliance with the new law, but itís certainly within the spirit of what World Rugby is trying to achieve. Good management Iíd say.

    Red without question - but be prepared for the player to tell the disciplinary panel that he spat at the ground and in no way was it directed at another player.
