    A sledgehammer for almost every type of nut! Including this one IMO

    Exactly. What's the difference between pretending to be an opponent and shouting "Get it it. Come On. Get it in" at a LO just to put the thrower under pressure.

    A clear case of "Ask. Tell. Penalise" if you ask me.

    At the first instance, ask them not to do it again. "Don't do that again please". If they do it again then "Ive asked you before. The next time it will be a PK". And if he's stupid enough to do it again ... well, he's only got himself to blame.

    shrug - it's a trick that only works once in any given game, it's not going to happen again this afternoon, no one would be fooled.

    so the only important thing is how you referee it the first time.

    I'm in the acts contrary to good sportsmanship camp. I don't like gamesmanship and I don't think it should be part of the game. I don't think this is a sledgehammer and nut issue, I think it is correctly penalising inappropriate play.

    And preventing a potential flash-point.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    I won't penalise it until a specific law says I must, so that'll likely be never then especially if 50% of the laws are to disappear !

    Gamesmanship is part of the game. Dummies, over and under runners, lineout calls...all we're doing is debating which forms of gamesmanship we want to allow.

    I think its OK. To me anything that tricks an opponent tactically is fine unless specifically sanctioned. The line for me is trying to "win" a penalty - diving, dummying from the base of a ruck etc, which are.

    As do I. I see it occasionally. My test is that I've never had a player complain to me about. The only one who cops it is the player who threw the pass ... from his team mates.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals
