    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    I didn't think Black 20 was offside at all. His feet appeared to be behind the line when the ball was picked up. I think NO mistakenly thought that one of the other two offside players was Black 20....

    Re: So, about this framework then...

    Perhaps a maul formed in General Play that ends unsuccessfully results in a scrum to the team that took it in, but a maul formed from a lineout results in a turnover scrum.

    Re: So, about this framework then...

    Well, this is what I think.....

    IMO, all three tackles were stone cold RC, even before the framework (the SBW one was in 2017, so it was) and none of them have any place in our game. Now, if that...

    Re: So, about this framework then...

    A question (or three).

    Do you think Bundi Aki's hit on Ulupano Seuteni was a just a "good hard hit"?

    Do you think SBW's hit on Anthony Watson was just a "good hard hit"?

    Do you think Reece...

    Re: Pacific Islands

    There would be a straightforward solution to this - make RWC the only game in town - no elite level domestic club competitions are to be played during the six weeks that RWC is being played.

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

    100%.

    In this case, I thought it almost looked worse at full speed. I definitely thought it looked like a card when I saw it for the first time before the slo-mo.

    Its a pity you cherry picked...

    Well, the five-year residency might alleviate that a bit.

    Re: Best decision of the wc

    I agree.

    Regardless of the framework, the referee also has to adhere to the Laws, one of which is Law 6.5a

    If O'Keefe wasn't even considering foul play, then the framework doesn't apply.

    Re: RWC Wales v Fiji penalty try

    I thought that in the NZ one, the whole Canadian front row stood up in the scrum.

    IMO, it would be manifestly unfair to either pick one at random, of YC all three of them.

    Re: Should the game clock be reset?

    You clearly have no appreciation of what it takes to be a goal-kicker. You are suggesting it is a just a matter of putting the ball on the tee and kicking it. Well, it is isn't. Not by a long shot.
