    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    L'Irlandaise's post looks pretty conclusive to me.

    11.5a A player knocks the ball forward immediately after an opponent has kicked it (Charge down).

    If World Rugby decides that it needs to...

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    The very name seems to suggest that a charge down should really only count if the ball is in fact 'charged down'. Surely any attempt to 'charge down' that results in the ball actually continuing...

    Crikey, wish I'd never mentioned it

    That said, and I'm wondering how to phrase this, but when you're the 'dominant collider', you do make sure you make your mark for the next time round.

    [INTERNATIONAL] Re: Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    I appreciate the opinions of those who have commented. Maybe I'm overly sensitive to cheap shots as an ex fly half but I just don't think Beale's actions were unavoidable. Too often we accept that...

    [INTERNATIONAL] Kurtley beale - lucky to stay on the field?

    In all the fuss over the sending off of Scott Barrett I cant help feeling that Kurtley Beale was lucky to stay on the field for his cheap shot on Goodhue in the lead up to the All Black's first try....

    [Tackle] Re: Brumbies vs Reds YC

    I couldn't be more in agreement with Ian, to be absolutely clear this is a massive cheap shot on the ball carrier, leading with his shoulder he had no clue whether he would first impact the head,...

    Minor point but wouldn't it be more logical to locate this in law 19.11 as it applies between the bind and set calls or am I missing something?

    Nah, playing the ball off his feet, not having it. Ref could have blown up slightly earlier but given that he didn't (and we're only talking a second or so) Falatau has no right to continue to play...

    [Law] Re: Advantage Quiz again

    Given the fine margins in this scenario I wouldn't waste too much time worrying one way or the other. The only thing I'd say though is there is a difference between being behind the 10m line when the...

    This has been a really interesting thread because it highlights an issue which is not in any way subjective. The 2017 law book outlined a scenario that was permissible (ie the receiver being...

    I'm with Treadmore on this one. Before the re-write of the laws the receiver joining the line-out once the line out had commenced was specifically allowed in law and was something the team I coached...

    One of the things that irritated me when I started reffing was that as soon as the ball crossed the touch line non-throwing teams started shouting for numbers in the line. I actually now include it...

    You'd certainly think so however in my memory scrum stability was never any sort of issue. At a defensive scrum, if we lost the ball (which wasn't preordained as we still believed in the great god...
