    Re: cross code "test"

    There is a history of something similar.

    Back in the 80s Bath played either Wigan or Hull KR in two matches; one played to League rules and the other to Union Laws. If memory serves the League...
  3. [Scrum] Re: Advantage applied if ball deliberately kicked out of scrum tunnel

    I'm guessing that because the act of kicking a ball out of the scrum is not only illegal (PK) but also because it is dangerous play in that a boot will be in close proximity to the head of an...

    [Law] Re: Lineout - blocking throw / throw not 5m

    First time is FK then there is the opportunity, if it happens again, to escalate to a full arm PK
  6. Re: a good example of the momentum "forward pass"

    Ball clearly went backward - look at the direction of the hands in the initial live run. looks an even worse call in slow motion.

    But the software is already in your phone. You are tracked all the time. Just not with an 'official government app'
  8. [Law] Re: World Rugby approves law trials to reduce coronavirus risk

    I believe that Welsh Rugby has also indicated that it won't be adopting them either.

    RFU is remaining quiet - as far as I am aware - at this stage. Probably because of the whole Premiership...
  9. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Because then you'd have to mandate the depth of the 'In goal' area to ensure an equal opportunity of scoring from either a PK, conversion or Drop Goal. If I award a PK 18m out from the Goal line and...

    Re: Covid-19 Returning to play in Sept?

    Interesting and thanks for sharing.

    Curious that passing drills were permitted, one presumes that the players wore gloves?

    [Law] Re: a few new boy questions

    This is the salient point.

    When a team makes a substitution and that takes them to the limit of the number of interchanges they are permitted I will tell the Captain that is their limit. I would...

    It used to be a "thing" in London, so always worth clarifying - as CR says.

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    Although before the Laws were (ahem) "simplified and not rewritten" there was a paragraph that stated all players approaching the line of touch (LoT) were deemed to be participating players.

  16. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    This move is one of those "about bl@@dy time" changes. Should have been done years ago.

    It goes to "Equity" as the defenders now have a legal way of stopping a try being scored. Let's all face...

  20. [Ruck] Re: Counter-rucking against the scrum-half at the breakdown "playing the 9"

    I think the scenario to which to which the OP refers is where, in the process of driving a defending player off the ruck - by driving him/her backwards - the scrum half inevitably gets flattened. ...

    Interesting read It does intimate that he was parachuted into the position at USA Rugby by WR as a condition of the original bail out.
