    [Law] Re: Offside oddity

    There does seem to be in law - a player is liable to be penalised if they are going forward towards the ball

  7. [Scrum] Re: "Modern" interpretations of scrum dominance.

    I don't recall many FKs against England at the weekend - weren't they all resets or PKs?
  8. [Scrum] Re: "Modern" interpretations of scrum dominance.

    Wouldn't it be easier just to move the technical infringements to be FKs, and leave the dangerous/cynical ones as PKs. Multiple FKs become a PK for repeated offence anyway...

    Re: SmartPower Profiler stud set

    Our soc. proactively sent us guidance that they have been approved by WR, but NOT by RFU - and therefore they were not legal.

    [Ruck] Re: Offside

    Agree it's not a great example... isn't the PK against Black 13, who looks like he is loitering and still in front of the back foot when the ball comes out?
