    [Tackle] Re: Brumbies vs Reds YC

    As straightforward a card as you'll see... and yet a "top level" referee can't provide an adequate explanation of why he's dropping a team to 14 players for 10 minutes because of it.
  2. [Law] Re: Offence warranting YC the. Try, go back and YC?

    probable

    /ˈprɒbəb(ə)l/

    adjective


    likely to happen or be the case.

    Probable and likely are both > 50%.
  3. [Law] Re: Law Change Proposal - Elminate accidental knock-ons

    Not sure who edited that, but no... even the reference on that page links to the law book which says 'The game shall be played with an oval air-inflated ball'.

    We tried HELIUM once though...

    [Law] Re: MARK - Is this a valid mark ?

    Disallowing a mark because the call / signal is slightly later than 'simultaneous' reeks of 'gotcha' refereeing, particularly in grass roots games, and particularly if there's no pressure around the...

    Re: Worcester v Bath .. 97 minutes

    Indeed - I would actually think it's the most common time for YCs.

    1. Players are more fatigued so deliberate offending to slow down the play or lazy attempted tackles are more likely;
    2. The...

    [Law] Re: MARK - Is this a valid mark ?

    Interesting - I didn't realise in union that the posts don't count for the purpose of ruling a knock-on.

    [Law] Re: MARK - Is this a valid mark ?

    Almost certain this part of the law means the ball can be kicked, hit a post, and then caught for a mark. It's not meant to allow a knock forward to be claimed as a mark.

    Re: always remember your coin ...

    It's hard to believe that this is a serious story. Suspending a referee for using an alternative method to a coin toss? That's making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Why does it matter? Was a fair...

  11. [Law] Re: Bias and refereeing team with family relative in it

    My view is:
    Immediate family = shouldn't ref (wherever possible)
    Extended family = no problem

    [Scrum] Re: pT after scum collapse no put in

    If this was the 1600s, and the game was played in Salem, Massachusetts, the referee's ability to predict the future would have had him burned at the stake.

    [Tackle] Re: Knock-on in a tackle

    The 2018 law book reads as if the player making the tackle has knocked on.

    In fact, it sounds clear that that is exactly what they mean.

    Whether they did mean that though... that's another...

    Wiser people than I will comment on the sanction (although to me it seemed fair) - but I did notice the referee twice called it a "late dangerous tackle". There was nothing late about it... the...

    Re: Cipriani knocked out

    Are you trying to claim a raised forearm to the face?

    From what I can see, the forearm contacts the chest, and it only looks like it's on the face because of the whiplash from the head-clash.

    That's a situation he would have encountered hundreds of times, so if he was to make a law error this time, that would be rather strange. Mind you, I think we need more than one example before we can...

    [Line out] Re: Help with this law ?

    Even if they did clarify it in the 2018 law book, you would find some referees would treat that as just another interpretation, equally as valid as the 2017 law book.

    Am I flogging a dead horse?...

    Re: Trouble at Los Millos

    May be the first RWC where a bye qualifies. Everyone else appears to be fielding ineligible players!

    Seriously though, shouldn't WR be ensuring eligibility BEFORE matches take place??
