  1. [Scrum] Re: New scrum law to be introduced immediately, apparently...

    Yes, not only legal but technically smart. With the outside foot well up the props are the pre-bind 'brake' and, most important, the inside foot can be further back so that the inside thigh is...
  2. [Scrum] Re: New scrum law to be introduced immediately, apparently...

    I'll take a guess at "Why" . . . .

    Under the previous scrum engagement sequence of CTPE hookers would act as the 'brake' so their props could set up in the 'power' position and lean in to get the...

    Re: retaken conversion

    Back to the OP.

    The kick is to be re-taken. The kicker is the player about to take the kick. The previous kick is a no-op, it never happened so the kicker is the player now designated not the...

    [Maul] Re: Is this a forward pass?

    Play on! The fact that the opponent questions the non-call? Hahahahaha!

    The critical part: Did the support player join the BC from an onside position and take joint possession before the maul...

    [Line out] Re: Another Line Out Question..

    Not relevant as the numbers advantage is in 'participating players', not in the lineout.

    The critical question is when does the receiver join. If he delays until after the ball is thrown then he...

    [Line out] Re: Another Line Out Question..

    Play on. 'Matching numbers' only applies to the players in the lineout, not 'participating players'.

    What 'unfair advantage' have Red concocted by the receiver joining just before the ball is...

    [Law] Re: Offside support players

    1. A player is offside in open play if that player is in front of a team-mate who is carrying the
    ball or who last played it. An offside player must not interfere with play. This includes :

    [Line out] Re: Crusaders doing what they do best

    Returning to the OP . . .

    Line-outs often produce really dynamic and creative action. I think it's time to define a 'line-out area' as being from the LOT to 10m back (backs off side line) and...

    Re: Shirt Pulling

    If the defending player pulls the rucker forward out of the ruck then no foul.
    If he pulls him off his feet down over the ball then he collapsing the ruck.
    If he's grabbing a player not yet bound...

    [Ruck] Re: Jackal vs hands in the ruck?

    Watch some 7s. It's all about getting there first. If the defender (BC's opponent) gets his hands on the ball before engaged by the BC's support he'll drag it into the tackled player's body and earn...

    [Tackle] Re: Tackle holding on a ball

    Two players, Red and Blue, have equal possession of the ball. Blue puts his knee to the ground.

    There are two views of this:

    a. A tackle has occurred and the standing player(Red) must release...

    [Law] Re: In front of knock on

    If the Red players retire to a point behind their 15, (or behind where the ball was last played by a teammate???) then they will be onside.

    [Tackle] Re: Tackle holding on a ball

    I think that in 'dual possession', where both players are grasping only the ball, then the player that gets a knee on the ground has taken himself out of the game and must cede the ball.

    [Law] Re: deliberate knock up

    OK, if as the referee you'd see that as a deliberate block (the block is no violation, but it goes forward) then it can't be a deliberate knock forward. Then it's a simple knock-on and scrum, not a...

    [Law] Re: deliberate knock up

    Putting aside the deliberation on whether an attempt at interception (or blocking a pass) that goes forward is in violation of 11.3 let me ask this: Why does 11.3 get an automatic YC?

    [Tackle] Re: Deliberate Knock On

    It is a good example of what is currently in vogue.

    So . . . . does he "intentionally knock the ball forward" or was...
  24. [Tackle] Re: No-tackle. Can offside lines be estabilshed by being over the ball ?

    The referee got it wrong. There was no tackle (placing hands on player already on ground does not constitute a tackle), therefore no TWOL. Blue did play the man without the ball (and around his neck)...

    [7's/10's] Re: "tackler release"

    This particularly true when the BC is being held up. The "tackler" can't see when the BC gets a knee to the ground so the referees call is needed.
