    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    I didn't like the criticism of the ref for Ireland v Japan, it was a bit much for a team who didn't score for almost 3/4 of the game. I though Peter O'Mahoney was lucky not to get a yellow for...

    Been here for a week and it's been great, the fans mixing with each other has been great fun. Fanzone in Tokyo is ok, it is in the wrong place as it is a mainly business district with limited space...

    [Tackle] Re: Russia vs Samoa - High Tackle Yellows

    Watching in the Tokyo fanzone the Japanese fans love those big hits, I thought the first was a good decision as the ball carrier was low and the tackle was mostly good but with head contact. 2nd...

    It is starting to feel like 2007 all over again. But still some people are insisting this is some sort of master plan by Schmidt to avoid raising expectations.

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    For me the key guideline here is "Clear and Obvious" and this definitely is not. NZ player drops the ball to kick before KB can make an attempt to tackle him, once he hasn't got the ball Beale can't...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    NZ definite red card, led with the shoulder straight into an opponent's head, no attempt to tackle and very dangerous and a good spot by Garces. Beale not so sure, maybe a penalty if the try wasn't...

    Here's the clip I was on about, knocked on and then kicked out by the defender. Definitely not the clearest of instructions.

    Re: IRE v FRA: to card or not to card?

    Must say I don't like players doing this to contrive a card, it's a bit like footballers waving imaginary cards at the ref after a foul encouraging a real card. France should have had a yellow...

    [Law] Re: Player goes to ground. Can you award a try ?

    My first impresdion was try too, intent seems to be the key. Eg if the player slipped and the ball hit his foot/knee then the try would stand too imo.

    [Scrum] Re: Is it uncontested

    I think time off, confirm if there's an eligable player that can come on. If not then the next scrum is uncontested due to safety issues.

    Definitely agree on the offsides not being enforced, given the 13 man high lines being used it's inevitable that more kicking in behind for a chaser rather than for territory will be used.
