    [Tackle] Re: Pulling through at the tackle

    If you wish I can make up some dumbass reason to disagree. Just to set your mind at ease :biggrin:

    [Tackle] Re: Clearout at the tackle

    No issue with the clearing in the videoclip: as long as you go to the ground as a result of rucking against an opponent, I am fine with it. I don't see any sealing off there: blue had their change to...

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

    No. I believe we should rewrite the law book to improve it. The last revision was explicitly meant not to change anything. The fact that it failed to do it effectively without losses doesn't mean we...

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

    My comment is aimed at explaining the rationale behind awarding a scrum. Previous versions of the law book and clarifications were pretty clear about the decision to be taken in such cases: a 5-m...

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

    My 2p:

    Advocates of awarding the 22DO for a KO in or into the IG and made that argue that awarding a 5m-scrum the attacking team is better off as compared to the case where they didn't knock on in...

    [Junior] Re: Knocked out but played on

    I've asked similar questions in a couple of occasion to err more on the safe side, i.e. to make sure a slight knock to the head that at first sight didn't look a like a big deal wasn't more serious...

    [Law] Re: Penalise teams late onto the field

    How about sending somebody to call them over and casually, subtly (but not too much) implying that pissing off the ref right from the start is not necessarily the best strategy?

    [Law] Re: Knocked dead by knock on ?

    It makes perfectly sense: the difference between a lineout and a scrum at the place of the infringement is usually a few meters at most. Awarding a 22DO for knocking-on dead harshly brings the...

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

    [Law] Re: Kick-off not reaching 10m Line.

    Lineout option is unlikely indeed but still on if your scrum sucks but you have a solid lineout. Of course you still have the QTI option too. I have seen it with my very eyes while ARing: smart...

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

    The materiality of gaining those 15 cm is minimal. I think we have much more pressing issues to deal with (crooked scrum feeds anyone?).

    [Law] Re: Kick-off not reaching 10m Line.

    Doesn't seem fair to me:

    Bad kick: goes 10m but out to the full. Options for the opponents: re-kick, scrum, OR lineout

    Awful kick: not 10m AND out to the full. Options for the opponents:...

    [Ruck] Re: Advantage

    The advantage might have been for tackling the man without the ball although I reckon it looks like he is calling "in from the side". The rest is a sequence of brain farts indeed :(
  19. [Scrum] Re: When, exactly, does the scrum-half end the scrum...?

    It always depends: If one team's 8 and 9 are slow as hell you are probably going to have a mess at each scrum they win and there's not much you can do about it.

    [Law] Re: In front of knock on

    I'd argue they are all probably offside under the 10 metres law, hence no action from the opponents can put them back onside. They must retreat behind the position of Red 15, where he knocked the...

    [Scrum] Re: Scrum half put in

    I always wondered why it is not something we see more often. Probably at the levels you expect to regularly see uncontested scrums coaching usually doesn't reach this depth.
  23. [Law] Re: Offence warranting YC the. Try, go back and YC?

    I call out loud what the restart is going to be whenever I have to call time off for injuries, subs, or similar stuff. Something like "Peep! Time off. Scrum red here."
  24. [Law] Re: Offence warranting YC the. Try, go back and YC?

    If a player succeeds in denying the opponents a try by means of foul play it is a PT and a YC. I don't see why being unsuccessful in denying the try should make it any better: it's like the offending...

    Does anything in the law prevent you from throwing a lineout skewed enough so that there is NO WAY the opposition can gain possession? That would force the ref to blow his whistle: ball dead, game...
