    Default Banter at the scrum

    Collectively there must be a wealth of funny comments/sledging heard by members around the scrum.

    This from yesterday Hartpury College II v Exeter Uni II:

    Hartpury 2 complains that Exeter 2 is set up on, not left of the mark. Exeter 2 "why don't you go back to your colouring in?"

    Suppress a chuckle. Stand 'em up and reset.

    Senior match.

    THP: Sir, he's grabbing my fat roll and twisting.
    LHP: Loose some f#$*ing weight.
    THP: Don't call me fat.
    LHP: I didn't, you said you're fat.

    Default Re: Banter at the scrum

    At an U13 match where two hookers were bantering at line outs and scrums and it ws getting emotional and a flashpoint.

    me - "right time off, you two, come here. OK, it was funny while it lasted, but enough banter now and we'll get on with the game, understood?"

    red hooker - "yes sir"
    blue hooker - "yes sir"
    me - "OK, time on, line out red"
    [red hooker throws in, not straight]
    blue hooker - "nice throw, fatty!"

    He just couldn't resist. I had to laugh even as i gave a PK against him.

    Default Re: Banter at the scrum

    When playing many years ago there was a little "chat" about the decision prior to one scrum. The referee commented that there appeared to be a lot of referees on the pitch today. Someone commented " aye and your not the pick of the bunch."

    Which is why I still stick with mark across the pitch, there can be no issue as to who's on the right side of it then! College game too, watching too much TV, tell um to GTF on with it!!!!!!!!

    Gentlemen

    I recall a match from a couple of years ago when I awarded a PK at a scrum about 22m out, bang in front, against the defending team. As the the collapsed scrum stood up the defending Hooker and Captain called me a "phooking cheat". Oh how we all laughed!

    Yours faithfully

    Mr W Barnes, Gloucestershire

    I heard tell of a high level referee who used the following:

    "I wasn't aware there was more than one referee on the pitch today. *Pause 1,2,3,4,5,6* And if I had to pick one, I wouldn't have chosen you."
