    You'd expect so - but it'd be nice for WR to make the official interpretation public.

    Not doing so just creates confusion for the spectators, particularly when nearly identical tries have been awarded this season.

    DocY is spot on. If NO is stating the WR refs position that's great but he didn't make that clear at all, so now everybody that has listened to that podcast note believes that ion their next game control must be displayed etc. Once again the elite level has previously shafted you guys and left head roots papers, coaches and supporters misunderstanding start that can expect.

    It's just not good enough.

    Not at all, If the powers to be tell me that that was no try that is how I must rule such a situation when I am in the middle. Why I think the law should be is not material I do as I am told.

    Of course, I will decide if I think control is present and I've no TV camera to prove me wrong.

    The beauty is at the level most of us referee at there is no video replay, so very difficult for anyone to challenge our decision. Explaining that decision might be a separate problem......

    and I perceive that at grass roots levels tries will be awarded for all but the most obvious (C&O) drops

    Really? I'd not expect tries such as the one under discussion to be given in a grass roots game. But as Paule says - there probably isn't going to be much of a fuss whatever you decide.

    I meant more of the "finger tip all the way" type tries.
