  1. Re: England Rugby Final League Positions 2019/20

    A lot fairer than just abandoning the season as has been the case in Scotland. The Scottish leagues were more complete than those in England and some teams had even been awarded trophies as having...

    Re: who’d be a referee

    I have always called captains by their first name and all other players by their number or position even if I know the players well.
    Never had any issues with that.

    Re: Henshaw on May

    Agree that Henshaw’s challenge was late. In slow motion it is clear that he did not adjust to make the challenge until May had kicked. TMO should have been consulted and possible YC.

    [Tackle] Re: Clearout at the tackle

    [Law] Scrum or 22?

    Ball kicked cross field. Winger gives chase and kicks on soccer style. Winger’s last kick was from 5m out but ball goes dead.
    Is this a 22 or scrum back at the 5 where the ball was kicked?
  11. [Ruck] Re: Scrum halves playing the ball back with their foot from the side of the ruck

    Absolutely! What’s more, if a player inadvertently went to ground on the wrong side they would move PDQ or receive a ‘gentle reminder’ from the opposition forwards that they shouldn’t be there.
    I...
  12. [Scrum] Re: Last Scrum and Tries Games RWC2019 Wales-France

    I am amazed that more has not been made of this. I saw the Wales SH as interfering with the France SH, in front of the ball, and in the gap between flanker and No8. I have freeze-framed on a number...

    Re: Lineout within 5m of Goal Line

    I have just checked the 2003 LotG and Law 19.7.(l) states: "The line of touch cannot be within five metres of a goal-line".

    Anyone have an older copy?

    It is bizarre that the AR closest to the missed post was the one who put their flag up.

    My understanding is that each AR monitors their own post and then confirms success with the other before...
