    Post Women's Rugby World Cup 2017 - Warning spoilers included!

    Hullo,
    The eighth Women’s Rugby World Cup is taking place in Ireland from Aug 9-26, with England defending their title. All the latest news can be read on WRWC 2017.

    Time for a sub-forum for Women's rugby, don't you think? Or at least a prefix.

    Videos hub is well worth a look ;
    Match Day Highlights and more... ( Disciplinary etc.)

    The usual "Warning spoilers included !" applies.
    In that as scores get posted, there will be spoilers if you haven't seen the games.

    If you mean the England v Spain (I think that was the opening match) the referee was Aimee Barrett-Theron.
    Barrett-Theron broke onto the international scene last season by being named on the World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series panel, and her career flourished soon after as she officiated at the Rio Olympic Games and then took charge of her first test between Japan and Fiji in Japan in December.
    Her career received a further boost in February, as she was tasked with the responsibility of officiating the opening match in the Women’s Six Nations between Scotland and Ireland.
    Up and coming referee.

If you give everything, anything is possible in life.”

    Why are they not playing the new global law trials which came into effect on 1st August in Northern hemisphere?
    I saw several instances of kicking ball out of the ruck and tackler not getting up and entering tackle are from correct side in the 4 games played so far

    Quite simply because the idea of trials is; that any problems of applying the new Laws can be ironed out, before any major tournaments. It would be somewhat unfair, on both the referees and the players, to spring those changes on them, without their having a chance to play by the new Law amendments beforehand.

    These closed trials will not apply for the Women's Rugby World Cup as the tournament is so close. However the November window games will be played under these laws.

    I too was surprised as we have been led to believe that the new GLTs are in place in the Northern Hemisphere for all games from 1st August.

    Ho hum...

    At the same time these teams have been preparing for the past 4 years for this competition, it would hardly be fair to impose Laws amendments that are scarcely a week old. The first of August date was chosen so teams could get in a couple of preseason friendlies, before the new season starts. Why on earth would you want to pénalise the Women's World Cup springing à gotcha like that on them? YMMV.

    1:40 on video time, Was the ball or the green player ever in touch? Then, 2 players from each side on/near the line of touch, and a non-throwing-in Gold player touches the ball. Looks like the AR radios this in, and the referee shouts play on.

    Post Re: Women's Rugby World Cup 2017 - Warning spoilers included!

    I had wondered about that quick throw, given that play had stopped and Green were forming up for the Line out. The confusion caused by the break in play led directly to the overlap for Gold's try. There was a discussion on these forums recently... to be honest I am not sure what the correct call is. If I have stopped play for a line-out, then we are going to have a line-out for a restart. Less confusion that way. YMMV. Both the quick thinking Gold player who threw the QT and the winger who scored come from the Sevens scene.

    Elsewhere, I found the orignal Match officials announcement buried under 4 months of news articles.
    World Rugby announced the panel of referees and assistant referees for Women's Rugby World Cup 2017.

    The list of referees is:
    Amy Perrett (Australia*)
    Graham Cooper (Australia)
    Tim Baker (Hong Kong)
    Joy Neville (Ireland)
    Sean Gallagher (Ireland)
    Sara Cox (England)
    Claire Hodnett (England)
    Aimee Barrett (South Africa)
    Alhambra Nievas (Spain)

    *joint-recipients of the World Rugby Referee Award 2016.*

    A number of the panel are no strangers to the Women's Rugby World Cup stage, Perrett having refereed the 2014 final between England and Canada with Cox, Hodnett and Nievas also among the match officials for that tournament in France. Meanwhile, Barrett and Neville both played on the World Cup stage before turning to refereeing.



    Five assistant referees, each representing a different country, have also been named in:
    Rose Labreche (Canada)
    Beatrice Benvenuti (Italy)
    Marie Lematte (France)
    Helen O'Reilly (Ireland)
    and*Ian Tempest (England).

    Oops, my cutting and pasting mucked up this info
    World Rugby Referee Award 2016 – Alhambra Nievas, Spain, and Rasta Rasivhenge, South Africa


    Not entirely sure why cut ´n paste adds random * to my text.

    Having looked at the QT incident again, the Gold ball carrier was brought to ground on the field of play. One of the Green players competing for the ball had both feet in touch, but didn't appear to have her hands on the ball. The AR then signalled touch. Green knocked the ball forward after this. Scrum Gold looks to be the correct restart. Looks a bit of a shambles...
