    [Line out] Re: Another Line Out Question..

    Blue set the line out and for some reason unbeknown to us decided not to have a receiver.
    Red initially think we have to match - but finally twig and then take advantage.
    Blue trying to be too...

    [Line out] Re: Another Line Out Question..

    I would play on - it is not totally clear - the law drafter had obvously been on the gin.

    Re: Premiership final

    The RFU would not have approved, it might encourage unhealthy competition.
    Much better to have ad hoc fixtures and preserve the corinthian spirit.
    And anyway it would detract from the County...

    Re: Premiership final

    As a sporting contest I agree - it is pointless.

    But it sold 80,000 tickets and presumably many hot dogs and the odd beer.
    So it generates 1m+ at the ground and gives BT an event at the end of...

    Re: Why no red card?

    I may have said this before, but I would love it if each new version of the law book incorporated the guidance as notes, so we did not have to scour web sites to find it and guess if it is still...

  8. [Law] Re: Mark awarded, player permitted to pass rather than kick

    For all we know he was chatting to the tmo about something.
    He could have been unsighted by black 14.
    Or it could just be a snafu.

    Mind you the kick was so poor, a retaken kick may well have...
  9. [Law] Re: Mark awarded, player permitted to pass rather than kick

    No
    It is an incorrectly taken free-kick.
    I might have asked the TMO to take a second look at the tackle on the kicker.

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

    Could we have one of those experimental season where the referees actually applied the laws and see what happens.
    Then decide which simply need to be rewritten or just discarded.

    Re: Shirt Pulling

    I suspect because referees are trying not to blow the whistle.
    All of those are illegal - but we do need to get a game going at some point.
    If it does not prevent the ball coming out and is not...

    Quins all offside - behind the ball but probably not behind the place of a knock on. So a second technical offence due to player not realising the law. He had tracked back but not far enough. If I...

    [Law] Re: Not 10, directly into touch

    If the ball goes 10m and bounces into touch without contacting a player it is a valid restart and the only option is a line out at the point it goes into touch.

    I think that is fair.

  20. [Law] Re: Contest in the air or deliberately knocked dead

    You are always permitted to contest possession.
    Because it is a contest in the air, neither play could know exactly wehere the ball would end up.

    Elastic suggests that it would return to its original shape it the stress is removed.
    I think we may have gone beyond the critical point and the laws may have entered plastic deformation.

    You know it would be really good if there was somewhere we could look this sort of stuff up so we did not have to guess.
