    Re: 2 new laws for NRC at the end of August

    I ratehr suspect they thought a 22 DO was too much of an advantage? However I wondered if they thought about changing who gets the put in to the scrum? ie 5m scrum defence

    Not just a training jersey as they seemed to be wearing blue shorts and socks too!

    I wonder what their change strip will be like? And when they will wear it?

    Re: Next season's trials..

    I think it was stopped (as I recall whilst it reduced head injuries for the BC it did not overall reduce head injuries in the tackle), but there was to be some analysis of the results.

    Re: thoughts on this tackle

    As Phil says it is a seatbelt tackle, and that should be a PK minimum. Contact with head/neck looks incidental and not swinging arm as suggested by some, so I am thinking of PK only for the tackle. ...

    Re: retaken conversion

    For me the player had to take the kick within 30s. So if there is 30s or more still on the clock there will be a restart, but other than that he can choose to get a hurry on if he wants a restart or...

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

    [Tackle] Re: Brumbies vs Reds YC

    Ok to disagree, as this is a part of judgement. But for me the arm never contacted the BC and so it is hard to see how that makes it a tackle!

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    I agree with this. For me the important decision is whether BC 2 joined the maul legally. if so, then play on.
  12. [Tackle] Re: Wales v All Blacks U20 - how is this not a red card?

    I agree with Ian, the launching technique is IMO not a good idea as it must ramp up the danger of the tackle, and that doing so put a player at an increased risk of a higher sanction.

    [Tackle] Re: Brumbies vs Reds YC

    i don't think he did enough with his right arm to make this a tackle, so I would go for a shoulder charge, not head contact (but only as the bc fell so quickly!) with high danger, so YC is correct...
  14. [Tackle] Re: Wales v All Blacks U20 - how is this not a red card?

    Whilst I would probably agree with this, I suspect the issue was the decision about whether there was mitigating circumstances. As far as black was concerned, he was aiming a t chest level until the...

    For me it was one of two things. it was either a shoulder charge without grasping - that he waved his right arm about behind the player is not enough for me, in which case it was a penalty and for...
