    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    I suspect technically it's a forward-pass, but there's no way I'm stopping the game for it - it's neither clear and obvious, nor necessarily material. Play-on...

    [Tackle] Re: Brumbies vs Reds YC

    For me this was a shoulder charge (common usage), that doesn't meet the WR definition of a shoulder-charge and therefore isn't one; neither do I think it's clear that there is head-contact... On...

    [Law] Re: kick off gone 10 then blown back.

    Never had that... I've had a conversion go through the sticks and get blown back. Fortunately there's a law for that too; and even more fortunately I knew it at the time.

    Re: Shirt Pulling

    Surely if it is not a ruck, the players he is pulling are all guilty of obstruction (or at least accidental offside). Nothing else in law permits them to be in front of the player who last played...

    Re: Dangerous rucks

    It's there - but at the time the jackler grasps the ball there is no ruck (or they are guilty of illegal handling), so 15.3 doesn't yet apply.

    In either case to pick up an object on the floor...

    Beyond being fit, I assume. The Ďsavingí factor is because numbers are lower, you generally donít need to be as near each breakdown; so can run more economic lines.

    if they drove forward with the ball at the back (did not release the ball), the referee would award a scrum for ďaccidental offsideĒ rather than PK for obstruction

    [Line out] Re: Crusaders doing what they do best

    Looked absolutely fine in real-time... I note he also didn't see the clear and compelling evidence of black being about 2M offside at the ruck, or the high (and slightly late) contact on white.

    [Ruck] Re: Jackal vs hands in the ruck?

    Just to pick up on this point (as the others seem to have been covered).

    One person being over the ball does not form a ruck; an addition was made to the Tackle law (Law 10.) such that a player...
