    It was not the only 'issue'; there were actually what seemed an endless string of questionable (despite the first sentence in 6a4a) decisions and Red won. Gold had to put up with it as a 'learning' experience (see recent 'Rant' thread), the ref disappeared before Gold coaches could engage in any discussion. But the management of the match was appropriately escalated through the local Society.

    OK - it's a different sport, but still an interesting parallel - a surprise restart in football.

    http://www.theguardian.com/football/...l-celebrations


    This was allowed on the grounds that the opponents were all inside their own half (after their score they had run back to their own half to celebrate with their subs).

    IE this echoes the logic argued by some on this thread - you don't have to wait for the opponents to be ready to restart, but you can't restart unless they are all behind the 10m line.

    An interesting example Crossref, good spot.

    Or .... don't celebrate in your own half ! ( nice to see the referee YC the Red player who then pleasenabbed and held onto the ball preventing Whites from restarting)

Problem was that the kick was taken several metres into Gold's half and Red were running and almost at the ten metre line when the ball was kicked. Ref allowed it. And it didn't help matters that he was a first team player for Red's club, and this was his first ever time in the middle.
    a veritable receipe for a Cook Up
