    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    I don't see it. PK for (unintended) obstruction at the very most; he can't teleport out of there.

    Arab - charging (like Owen Farrell) is more than just any contact at all, it's driving into your...

    Similar happened in the last Lions series. It's a tough call.

    No, it's not at all. Check your definitions:

    [Ruck] Re: Jackaling

    You don't need to buy it, that's the way the law works.

    There's a tackle. Until two opposing players make physical contact, there's no ruck. Once that happens - say, red 6 grabs blue 12's shirt...

    Funny thing, seeing the video on a large screen (for the first time) it clearly looks to me like a fly hack, seeing the gif on a small screen it clearly looked like kicking out of the hands.

    If he hadn't released it, would the foot still have hit the ball? Then to all intents and purposes he attempted to kick the ball out of his hands. I accept...

    Re: Samoa v USA

    There's already a law 21.11, that's for a different situation. But then - if it's illegal to kick the ball out of the player's hands there, why not elsewhere? Hands are full of delicate bones, boots...

    I'd guess options to retake, attacking scrum 5 or attacking 5m LO.

    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    So you are hapy to lose credibility. Presumably you identify as intolerant and non-inclusive, then? Noted.

    Argentina always turn up. But I disagree on France - their problem is with the coaching and decision/communication structure, not with a lack of form players (which can be a big variable, but which...

    Biggest call is almost certain to be a high tackle/shoulder charge card, and controversy over whether or not it exactly matched the descriptions in WR's handy flowchart.

    [Line out] Re: Fiji-Japan linouts inside the field of play

    I'll be honest, I'm usually not focussing on the feet of the thrower as the ball is played into the lineout. Between the receiver at 5m, the jumpers, the tunnel and the defensive 10m offside line I...
