    [INTERNATIONAL] Biggar on Itoje, Owens on Heinz

    I've seen some online chatter by disgruntled England fans that Biggar should be cited for his tackle on Itoje, and Ken Ownes for his ruck entry which led to Heinz's HIA.

    What do people think - is...

    Re: Wales quickly taken PK...

    The problem is that the tackle shown in that still photo takes place after Watson had intentionally knocked the ball forward.

    Prior to this, Watson has his arm outstretched (trying to block the...

    Definitely not - it's circled in the pic in my original post, clearly still in.

    Does it count if he binds onto the arm of the opponent?

    [RWC] Re: Referee Rankings

    FWIW, I felt that both WAL v IRE and ENG v SCO were two of the best-reffed matches in the entire 6N, with clear, consistent refereeing.

    [6N] WAL v IRE - in at the side

    Was Tadhg Beirne unlucky to get pinged for in at the side?

    I felt he wasn't, and that it was a fair call - but my friend watching with me, and some of the commentators, and the Telegraph all say...
  7. [Tackle] Re: Wales vs England - Liam Williams going to ground to avoid tackle

    Another thing to consider maybe?

    Farrell's initial shove isn't a tackle as no attempt is made to bind with the arm.

    Then we have Williams attempting to get up, but still in his knees, and held...

  9. [Tackle] Re: Wales vs England - Liam Williams going to ground to avoid tackle

    [Tackle] Re: Making a tackle when on knees

    I'm not a ref, but I saw another on-the-knees tackle in that same match but in open play, and I thought it looked odd, too.

    [Law] Re: When is a knock-on not a knock on

    Thanks for all the answers guys, I'm really sorry but I can't remember if it was Sco v Wal or Eng v Ita, and no idea what time! It just seemed odd to me at the time.

    And sorry again, but my...

    [Law] When is a knock-on not a knock on

    From one of yesteday's 6N matches...

    A receiver bumbles the ball and it goes forwards off their hands.

    Before it hits the ground, however, they have a second bite at the cherry.

    They fail to...

    Poll: [Ruck] Re: Is the ball out?

    Hang on a mo, isn't there a convention that "away from" means 1m or so? From previous threads here that's what I've been led to believe, IIRC.

    If so, surely the ball isn't "out" of the TWOL (i.e....

    [6N] Re: Scotland v Ireland Sexton failed HIA

    Leigh Halfpenny has been off for 3 months with concussion after the Aussie game in the AI's, so it seems like Scarlets and the WRU are taking it seriously.

    [6N] Re: ENG v FRA - Blocking?

    Here's the clip of the blocking, not sure how clear and obvious it is, but like I say I was surprised it didn't get a second look.

    [6N] Re: ENG v FRA - Blocking?

    Yes, possibly :)

    I think that sort of blocking (kick chase) is also unsporting - but it's become common practice these days in internationals, sadly.

    But the kind of blocking that prevents a...

    I felt WB was very quick to blow down Wales's try for obstruction, rather than let it run and review with TMO. Was it clearly material in one view and at full speed?

    Agreed, agreed, and yes - although perhaps yellow for reckless. But for my money he intended to injure, "accidentally on purpose".
