    Re: cross code "test"

    As you say the Union game was a closer scoreline than the league game in 1996 but at the time there was a feeling that this was mainly due to Wigan being full time professional and so much fitter...

    [Mini/Midi] Re: Under 14s kicking to touch from a penalty

    This is exactly my issue... do I assume we only do what is detailed in the age grade reg, or assume the age grade reg only states deviations from the adult game?[/QUOTE]

    The best way of putting it...

    [Mini/Midi] Re: Under 14s kicking to touch from a penalty

    I've always thought that the way the RFU age grade regulations are written is a slightly strange mix. By emphasising some aspects of the laws but not others they can give the impression that if it is...

    [Law] Re: Not 5 at QTI

    If that were the case for the scenario in the OP the mark of touch would be in a different place depending on whether you chose the scrum or lineout option. That makes no sense to me. You are saying...

    [Law] Re: Not 5 at QTI

    That is correct except by my reading - 18.8 (f) specifies that the mark of touch for an incorrect quick throw is where the incorrect throw was taken

    [Law] Re: Not 5 at QTI

    It seems to me that it meets the criteria in 18.4 (c) rather than 18.5 so that would seem to suggest options and then iaw 18.8 (f) the scrum should be in line with where the QTI was taken. To further...

    Re: Super rugby law trials

    - "forced" is a southern hemisphere term meaning the defender touches down in his own in-goal. (we don't have a word for that in the north)

    Thank you. I've never heard this term previously.

    Any reason that the NRL can get underway so quickly but Union still has another month to go? Is it just more effectve administrators?

    [Line out] Re: new boy questions round 3

    When I started I just used to mark the line of touch and assumed players would stand at the required distance either side of that. My mistake. I quickly found that, nearly always, whichever player...
  13. [Ruck] Re: Counter-rucking against the scrum-half at the breakdown "playing the 9"

    If you legally drive a defending player off a ruck and the 9 gets flattened as part of the collatoral damage I dont think thats playing the 9. You've engaged the ruck iaw the laws imo
