    Re: New record

    You assume that the tiebreaker is the gold standard, though. A tiebreaker at the end of a season can favour a team with more depth as injuries take less toll, or a second team who can call up a...

    Two seasons ago I had a 0-114 game, both sidse full and with reserves. The away team needed the points difference to be sure of promotion. It was otherwise a fairly dull match.

  3. [Law] Re: England Women vs Wales Women - player off feet playing ball

    The player on her feet doesn't have to let red up, but a player off feet can't prevent a player on feet from taking the ball - red has to release

    [Ruck] Re: scrum half protection

    Good or bad, the way it's reffed at high level is that if the ruck has collapsed and the ball is available to one #9, they are protected while they pass it away because...

  11. [6N] Re: Eng v Wal: Courtney Lawes charged for making a dangerous tackle

    I thought at the time yellow, as AWJ dropped. Watching again, I'm not sure - a card of either colour wouldn't surprise me.

    And if we look at the first page, you're the only ref not to think Richie earned a card for running in. You may choose to reflect on why this is, and why the nearby French players didn't, or you may...

    If you're experienced, you'll probably have noticed that in such situations it's generally the player running in who escalates things from jostling, and that it's quite standard for that player to be...

    [Law] Re: Marler grope

    I don't think it's my job as referee to police the consensuality of team dynamics, and I believe I'd rapidly lose any authority or respect if I tried to.

  16. [Law] Re: England Women vs Wales Women - player off feet playing ball

    I don't think it's unnecessarily unsympathetic to assume that an experienced (assistant) referee, standing 2m from a player playing the ball on the ground, facing directly towards it with nothing...
  17. [Law] Re: England Women vs Wales Women - player off feet playing ball

    So in context of the situation described in the OP, you're saying that the Welsh player isn't playing on the ground/holding on to the ball because her backside has been lifted off the grass?

    Re: [6N] Sco v Fra: Player on ground

    A single roll or twist is fine, but when you get tackled, roll (so you can present the ball) and then roll again, trying to make it look like momentum, that's not allowed.

    There were several...
  22. [In-goal] Re: Restart into in goal - defender kicks it dead via touch in goal - decision?

    No, that's a trick question - blowing the whistle makes the ball dead. But if he boots it straight into the audience in the stands, it's dead - no?

    Re: [6N] Sco v Fra: Player on ground

    It's still preventing a jackalling attempt. If there's a contest, I'll penalise it as playing on the ground (although agreed - generally one warning first, and that's enough).

    [Assistant Referees] Re: conferring

    Paragraph one is about requesting information if, say, you were unsighted. Para 3 is about giving TJs the power to intervene.

    But for clarity, I'd not rely on TJs for my decisions :)
