    [Golden Oldies] Re: Nigel Owens on inclusive rugby.

    I know a gay person who wasn't offended by IF comments. So by the same rationale IF should be able to continue playing?

    [Law] Re: Next year's Law Trials

    The article suggests the idea is to put more players in the back field and therefore open up space across the defensive line - fewer big hits as more space to run into....better for player welfare...

    Re: ENG SCO Farrell again

    For me - it wasn't late but there was no attempt to wrap and somewhat high (not 100% clear that there was direct contact to head)
    YC and penalty at the place of the infringement

    Re: Barnes podding

    This was in reference to Barnes stopping the Welsh taking a conversion after the Liam Williams disallowed Try. So the idea that someone could kick a last minute drop goal conversion to ensure the try...

    In what way are you not an AR then? Interested why you say TJ rather than AR.

    [Law] Substitutions

    What would you do if a coach/captain wanted to make a substitution but the player on the field refused to leave the pitch?

    This relates to something that happened in football (soccer) at the...

    [Assistant Referees] Re: Spitting on ball.

    Interesting the ref listened to your recommendation as a TJ (assuming you weren't an independent AR?)

  12. [Line out] Re: The old unconctested maul chestnut. Did I get this right ?

    Quite often it is better to be even vaguer pre-match. Then you don't box yourself into a corner at all.

    "Thanks for...

    [Line out] Re: Non engagement at Line Out

    Perhaps you classify the first time as accidental offside (scrum), so the second can't be accidental as they know what they are doing second time.

    [Law] Re: Red card or not

    I would play on in this case (rugby incident).

    The thing that makes this dangerous is the tackler going high, much more so than Parisse's movements. The tackler is putting himself at serious risk...

    Re: Folau Yc - what a joke

    With no lifter, Folau probably would have been rewarded for his athleticism as he would have been much higher than O'Mahoney whould would have probably caused Folau to flip over and land on his back!
  17. Re: Pococks offside that wasn't an offside.

    If no tackle then presumably no problem with Pocock going further than this and actually going in and grabbing the ball? Ball on the ground, not tackle, therefore no "gate" of issue with approaching...

  19. Re: Deliberate Knock On At A Tackle / Ruck?

    I am not sure being "off feet" is appropriate here - you can after all make a diving tackle, and attempt to dislodge the ball, I see this as somewhat similar. 9 has picked up the ball, once he's done...

    Let it go, or remind the player very firmly that speaking to an opponent in this way is not acceptable and he needs to be very careful to maintain his discipline for the remaining 9 minutes?
