    [Scrum] Re: Scrum to the team 'Going Forward'

    However, in this instance it's completely consistent with the "in the opponent's half" definition and usage - to favour that team for a restart if all other things are equal - and I see no reason to...

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum to the team 'Going Forward'

    Good question. Personally, I'd have given the scrum to white unless they were really clearly driven back in contact at the last phase (as unclear = white as attacking team).

    I see "going forward"...

    [Junior] Re: U14 Rugby - Lineout

    I'm not a UK ref, but it seems there's no prohibition on the maul. Uncontested lineout means the side throwing in get the ball. They're free to pass it out or set up a maul - or do they get penalised...

    [Law] Re: Knock on into the dead ball area.

    Blue pick it up, shout advantage over. Red clatters blue, rips in the tackle, and scores. You award the try, blue coach goes mental, the ref assessor presses his fingers to the bridge of his nose and...

    [Law] Re: Place of Conversion kick

    The discussion was a conversion, not a PK, so there is no mark, the player may choose anywhere in line with the place the ball was touched down. A PK I'd be less flexible on, because you're not...

    [Law] Re: Offside at scrum

    The ball is dead, and the forwards assemble. Play starts as the referee calls "crouch". The scrum begins when the ball is fed in.

    [Law] Re: KO deliberately not going 10

    You would; same as with an squint lineout or an early push at the scrum. A restart has to be successful (lead to open play) before the game can end.

    [Law] Re: Deliberate knock forward

    The difference is that he knocks it past an opponent. Contest and continuity - consider:

    1) QTI, red 14 launches it 20m to red 15 who can't quite catch it, so knocks it forward and gathers it...

    [Law] Re: Deliberate knock forward

    Agreed in this case, it was more of a general point - there will always be a grey area, and we try to avoid judging intent as a solution to that. I'm sure a slightly hazier example will come up in...

    It can have an effect on the size of the blindside/splitting the defence, which depending on the team might give an advantage. But crucially - it's far more important that the scrum proceeds safely. ...

    PK, absolutely. But it does require the ref to judge intent.

    [Law] Re: Knock on into the dead ball area.

    No, I think that's the correct call as the defenders haven't chosen to make the ball dead.

    The 5m defensive scrum is in place to discourage a touchdown for a 22DO.

    Re: advantage story

    What's better - a contestable line-out 30m downfield, or going forward 20m downfield with ball in hand and broken play?

    A contestable line-out 30m downfield, or a 50m punt from your own 10m that...

    Re: advantage story

    I remember Joubert gave a gold penalty advantage over in the 22 during the AUS-ENG test in 2016, I think the second match. After many phases... It raised eyebrows at the time.
  19. [Law] Re: summary of law changes, proposals and trials ?

    22DO only has to cross the line, I'd assume the same for the goal-line DO. However, some pitches have (due to circumstances beyond their control) very short in-goals, which might make a DO tricky...
  20. [Law] Re: Penalty offence by team that didn't knock on while playing advantage for the KO

    It's not dangerous play, though. So either back to the scrum, 7.2.c, or you're contradicting yourself.

    I disagree.

    Red have scrum advantage, at the next ruck red 9 shouts "Are you f'ing blind or just cheating?" at you in response to your ignoring, dismissing his loud appealing for a penalty. Back...

    Can yellow 9 go as far as B, or only A?
  24. [Law] Re: Penalty offence by team that didn't knock on while playing advantage for the KO

    Anything that falls under law 9, including cynical and dangerous play.

    I'm not aware of another meaning, I'm curious about the question?
  25. [Law] Re: Penalty offence by team that didn't knock on while playing advantage for the KO

    If it's not foul play, their offence costs them the opportunity to gain an advantage and gives the opposition a chance to contest at the scrum. If it's foul play, it costs them a penalty.

    It does...
