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

    The reason Moriarty fell over was surely because he attempted to lift his boot to the face level of the approaching South Africans and over-balanced backwards. There's a considerable difference...

    [RWC] Re: Knock on inside a maul

    In the event where the referee has a doubt about possible crossing, then yes, I agree.

    But I thought it was so obvious it didn't even merit the "benefit of the doubt and we'll have a look" play...

    [RWC] Re: Knock on inside a maul

    I was unconvinced by this TMO decision - surely you needed to see if Jamie George had his hands on the ball when the maul was formed, since it never seemed to leave his hands in the footage we were...

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

    At a guess, it looks like he mistakenly thinks the tackled player is holding onto the ball, but as he goes to signal the penalty to Wales, he realises that actually the blue 16 is holding the ball,...

    [Maul] Re: Two catchers

    I think you have to do a lot of reading in context, but you can avoid a contradiction.

    I'd have said law 19 is intended to be a quick summary of the full law set out at 16.18, and therefore...

    Found a video of the incident, complete with musings of BBC commentators.

  7. Willie Le Roux sin-binning for deliberate knock-on

    Can't see any discussion of this incident from this weekend's Scotland v South Africa match, which sadly doesn't appear on the BBC highlights, hence why no video link.

    Re: England v France

    Comments below come with the usual caveat that I am not a ref, rather just someone who appreciates that the analysis of decisions I didn't understand here is several magnitudes better than on...

    Re: England v Italy

    What exactly was Nigel Owens trying to achieve by saying, to all extents and purposes, "I think you've made a bit of a howler there, Georgie boy"?

    Even if Clancy had decided NO was correct,...

    Re: Wales v Scotland - Time up?

    With the marvels of BBC iPlayer (times given the time of the programme, not the game clock):

    Flags raised for Scottish conversion at 0:59:04. Welsh kickoff again at 0:59:32. Real Time elapsed =...

    Re: Wales v Scotland

    If anyone had a shocker, it was the BBC coverage team - they appeared to miss Evans try totally in real time as the camera they cut to resolutely failed to move left [edit: oops - I mean right!] to...

    Re: numbered shirts

    Was it 1987 that Bristol got rid of their lettering system? I could have sworn somewhere at my parent's house I have a copy of the match report for Harlequins v Bristol towards the end of 1997 (the...

    Re: St Nigel's funny five minutes

    Surely the trouble is that if you take the mantra that any player off their feet cannot interfere with play to its logical conclusion you'd have to penalise Kelly Brown for his tap tackle, as he's on...

    This must be one of the few sites where words to the effect of "I know virtually nothing about this but..." are treated so nicely! :biggrin:

    Re: St Nigel's funny five minutes

    I'm no referee (as I suspect will become abundantly obvious), but as to the incidents you mention:-

    Incident (i): I think White #1 had regained his feet and was competing for the ball before...
