    Re: End of Game - Did I get it Right?

    That's irrelevant, because safety-enjoyment(-equity?)-law is the priority to apply when there's a conflict between two or more of them. Rigid application of the law out of context of safety,...

    Re: QF Appointments

    From what I've seen, I'd rate Pearce, Berry and Williams above Garcès, and I find Skeen tends to overstep his mark. Given the Australian strength at the breakdown, it'll be interesting to see what...

    Concussions I don't know, and I don't think the RWC is an accurate guide as there is so much pressure to keep players playing.

    I think in the short term it was disruptive to introduce a framework...

    Re: RWC 2019 cancellations

    The last team to hold the ABs to 0-0 was Scotland in 1964..!

    WR have planned around some typhoons already so far, but this one is really big.

    [RWC] Re: USA/ARG - Offside from kick

    10.7.b.iv - you only need intentional touching, not a charge down.

    Edit: oops, I understand your point now - 10m offside? Then yes, correct.

    Re: Should the game clock be reset?

    Or say that only penalties from foul/dangerous play can be kicked for points. An incentive for running rugby, without encouraging cynical play.

    Re: [RWC] Italy vs RSA Tackle RC

    I thought 1 was clearly leading the tilt and drop, 17 looked if anything as if he was trying to slow it. But it could have been two red.

    I don't know; I can only imagine he took such a literalist view of the lawbook that the decisions in the rest of the game were not much better.

    Re: one flag up, one flag down

    I've heard of a referee in Germany who gave a very-clearly-missed conversion, simply because "both TJs gave a signal" - even though the signal was a low side-to-side swipe.
  12. [Tackle] Re: I wonder how the game would be if we, referees, actually implemented the Tackle L

    Not if you're cleared out properly. Ask a decent second- or third-rower for a demonstration :)

    To be fair, an article that quotes Phil Kearns and Stuart Barnes is unlikely to be the peak of rugby reporting ;)

    Re: Rugby is officially dead

    Note also how clever/fortuitous GD is in having his initial rush shielded from Genia's line of sight by Poite. It was a great interception.

    The implication is that they're leaving because they feel Union allows more nonsense from white players than it does from them.

    It doesn't allude at all, though - it specifically describes shoulder charges and high tackles, how to differentiate them, and then proceeds from there.

    I think the red and purple would both be too close to the burgundy of Georgia. I'm surprised at the red; I think amber or orange would have been clearly different from everyone besides Australia, and...

    Most coaches I meet know that the ball carrier can't forearm/elbow smash a tackler in the head, to be fair.

    For me, a penalty try - the token flapping hand was nothing like an attempt to bind.

    [Law] Re: Location of penalty for too many players

    Excellent question.

    2 - I wouldn't stop immediately. Red 11 makes a break and heads over the 22 towards the tryline, followed by blue 15 (the captain) and you both 5m behind her, a nailed-on try....
