    [6N] Re: Caterpillars getting out of hand?

    To be clear, you mean no players from either side?

    My issue at elite level is that the attacking side is allowed to be off their feet at the front of the ruck, thus preventing a legitimate...

    [Law] Re: Sco v Eng - Scrum back?

    I read 18.23b as any player actually playing the ball (a la the scenario in Sco/Eng where someone catches it before the 5m line), and 18.25 as someone not actually playing the ball (i.e. slapping...

    Cart before the horse. You have to determine who's played the ball before potential offside comes into consideration.

    Recruiting younger officials and retaining them at the high school level (80% of younger officials walk within 2 years) is an issue, and it's having a material impact on games. There's countless...

    The kicker makes their plant foot in a slippery muddy patch, plant foot doesn't plant. Could twist, could slip in any direction causing the kicker to go ass over elbows. See: Kurtley Beale's slip at...

    [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Definition of ''in touch''

    If the ball hasn't reached touch, 18.1.d allows this. Is there a clip you can post?

    Re: Touch call before fracas (Exeter/Saracens)

    This was the initial purpose of my post. I think this may have been an error, but there's no conclusive TV angles to say otherwise IMO.

    Touch call before fracas (Exeter/Saracens)

    I didn't get a chance to watch the actual game, but in watching the official highlight package, it's hard to tell where the BC went into touch from the eye in the sky angle provided, and there's no...

    As a referee, you can't involve yourself in such a deception, otherwise the aggrieved side will have a rightful gripe.

    Seconded. My shortest drives are either 75-100 miles each way, otherwise it's 2-300 miles for the "local" society. My circumstance isn't normal, though, as there is a "society" in my neck of the...

    You could, but giving the kicking team a free shot at conning the referee does not seem equitable or fair.

    Yeah, name changes like this will have to come from the top. One area high school changed from Redskins to Titans in 2001 when the district forced it through. I wouldn't be surprised if some in the...

    [Law] Re: Law 12.6 Kick off

    This is correct. This also dissuades the scenario where a team that has just given up a PT attempting to take the KO abnormally quickly.

    [Law] Re: Offside oddity

    In this scenario, the only way B9 gets pinged for offside is if B7 overruns the ball, and B9 plays it. If B7 gets there first, I would expect that B7 would be the one playing it, and it would be play...

    Yes. Weird set of circumstances, but it'll teach the Red player to not fly-hack it with a litany of bodies in the area.

    [Law] Re: Offside oddity

    B9 is offside once B7 plays the ball backwards, as B9 is in front of a teammate who played the ball (10.1).

    Within the context of a match? If he's trying to wind someone up, I'd be having a chat with him and the captain.

    At the social? Steer very clear, and do not engage.

    Re: Foot on the Line

    In this case, the ball was put in touch once Barrett caught it with a foot on the line. It's the same as if Barrett caught it with both feet in, then stepped on the line.
