    I think you're trying to inoculate us from the evil.

    Re: swing low

    You're either being deliberately obtuse, or so ignorant you're beyond help.
    Why try ignoring the "who" and just concentrate on treating people decently.






    Does it matter who?

    Re: cross code "test"

    Union will win the Union game.

    The League game may be closer given how much League stuff is present in Union, which wasn't the case when Bath played Wigan.

  6. Re: Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa

    It isn't exactly the running spectacle we thought we would get though.

    Because teams are afraid of giving away PK in their bit of the field, the preferred play is the kick. Better to make the oppo...

    The best sports stadium experiences in the world probably comes in the USA.

  9. Re: Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa

    Mate, you're talking about price.

    Value for money is more than just a cost equation.

    Let's take a book, for example. Let's say a first edition Dorothy Sayers.

    Re: Super rugby law trials

    Fans of rugby history and/or Bill McLaren would remember that act being called "minoring" the ball.

    We do have a word for it - it just isn't used.
  11. Re: Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa

    Not, generally, how value for money works.
  12. Re: a good example of the momentum "forward pass"

    WHat are the rules on a Captain's appeal there?
  13. Re: a good example of the momentum "forward pass"

    I'm not even sure that it's a momentum issue.

    The ball clearly went backwards out of the hands before moving forwards. That's simply a bad call.
  14. [Law] Re: World Rugby approves law trials to reduce coronavirus risk

    This, too, is my understanding.

    USA R is having to fashion consultative process to think about it because the old R&L Committee went away and there isn't a replacement yet.
  15. [Law] Re: World Rugby approves law trials to reduce coronavirus risk

    You're presupposing that the respective Unions adopt them.

    I don't know just how sure a bet that is.
  16. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    With goal posts at the back of the goal line, the post protector now becomes an issue again. Would grounding it against the protector - unlikely, I know, but bear with me - be considered in goal, or...

    You've not thought that through, or you've expressed it badly.

    If the defenders ground the ball against the post pad in-goal, it will be grounded by virtue of the fact that it has been touched to...

    Re: Straight up thuggery

    The fact that he wasn't pursued in a civil action does not mean there was no culpability. It means that there was no money to go after; lawyers go after the money, not the most culpable.

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    1. I tell the props - either side of the mark and hold your arm out so your finger tips touch. That's the gap.

    2. Either opposite the defending hooker, or at the back, offensive side, 2m back.

    [Law] Re: new boy questions round 2

    In that situation, a 22 will happen. I wouldn't worry about "what's the point", and just apply law.





    Bad weather conditions perhaps?

    Nobody, but nobody, in their right mind would consider hosting an event in Detroit. It isn't a major rugby playing hub, and frankly is a shithole. Chicago, maybe.
