    [Line out] Re: Offside by QTI

    1 he was onside. Red was slow to return, as explained (older teams, late in the game)

    2 you're not allowed to take up position in front of a QTI if you were offside, I believe.

    Re: booing & Barbarians

    Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory are the most usual suggestions to replace it, but they're overtly religious which is maybe not suitable for a secular country.

    I'd propose (at least for the...

    [Scrum] Re: Kick off not 10.

    You would think so, wouldn't you?

    On a not unrelated note, I chose refereeing over coaching. :D
  4. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    So both parties sincerely apologise, but wholeheartedly stand by their original comments/decisions and hope that no-one was offended or hurt by them?

    That's quite complicated.

    It is a rare situation, in that there were 2 chasers in position before the defence returned - but the average age was over 40 for both teams :)

    Possibly the reason it looks wrong is from a...

    [Tackle] Re: Open play, non-maul

    It sounds like a flying wedge, penalty to blue.

    If red players are not bound, tackling off the ball by blue, penalty to red (managing for materiality and flashpoints etc)

    That went well! :) Players and coaches positive, encouraging feedback from the assessor and my coach and some good tips on how to improve at this level...

    [Line out] Offside by QTI

    In a game I played in recently (old man rugby, not the highest pace):

    Blue kick deep from their own half, red 10 gathers the ball just inside his own 22 and gets bundled into touch by blue 6. As...

    Re: The crusade continues

    Saracen was a general term for Arab, in Europe. A closer translation of "crusader" in both meaning and use would be "jihadist".

    [Law] Re: Penalties and keeping track of them

    Agree with CR. What's interesting besides the number is the distribution. Are they all different offences, or clustered around particular behaviours? If the former, could consistency or communication...

    [Scrum] Re: Kick off not 10.

    I can only really see this happening at young and low youth level, at which point I'm fine with a straight punt if it restarts the game.

    The only way I can see an adult game progressing like that...
  12. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    There were some Dutch refs who appreciated it.

    "They have an odd sense of humour, so they're probably bigots too" is a piece of delightfully unreflective irony.

    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2019-20

    My second 2e klasse match this weekend, Amstelveen 2 - Zwolle.

    The #1 playing against the #2, and an assessor on the sideline. :holysheep:
  14. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    What nonsense! They can think what they like. It's acting as behaviour police, which is absolutely a role of the referee. If I carded everyone who had a disrespectful thought about a match official...
  15. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    Both, it's a hostile context. What I wouldn't necessarily card first time is "friendly fire" (although if I learn that's expected here I'd happily change my position). It's about context, not the...

    I've been advised that direct abuse on the grounds of race/sexuality is a straight red. Jokey chat among teammates ("ah, stop whinging, you homo") I'd probably give a very firm warning and card at...

    [Law] Re: captain asking not to play advantage

    That's the referee's judgement, not blue's. In most cases, blue's opinion carries a lot of weight, though.



    Also if they're 7m out, and it's a nailed-on (penalty/)try because the defenders have...

    I should be clear: I'm not justifying it, I'm only saying there's a reason that it's tolerated where it wouldn't be if the roles were reversed - I think its days are numbered.

    Probably not - but it's a very asymmetrical situation, really.

    I don't think I'd ref if I was that worried about assault.
