    Cite a law? C'mon. It's hands in the ruck. 15.11.

    We all know that we let the 9s break the law, and for good cause.

    How about clamping down on players on the ruck fringe obstructing in an off-sides position.

    Slow play from rucks advantages the defenders as well as the attackers so I don't see much advantage in it.So why do they do it? Damn good question.
    It is offside.

    Not off-sides.

    This isn't American Sportball.

    We know why we allow 9s to dig for ball, but I think they should not be allowed to let the ball go once they have it. It may not be out of the ruck yet, and they should be protected accordingly, but this ideal of lifting it to the back, putting it down again (or rolling it and then letting it go) and then looking and deciding on the option for what to do is, for me, taking the P.

    On Brian Moore's podcast last week Nigel explained that it's perfectly legal to ruck someone on the ground close to the ball ..ie with your boot
    As long as your boot is close to the ball and far from his head.
    Legal , but you just don't see it, he said

    Worth a listen

    Sorry, Sir, it won't happen again.

    So, is it 'lineout' or 'line-out', 'throw-in' or 'throw in'?

    So long as you use the singular form when referring to a singular occurrence I think you'll be okay.

    OK. Then is it lines-out or lineouts, etc in the plural?

    I use lineout - simpler.

    Now this i definitely agree with and usually forms part of my PMB. I point out if you want to be on the fringe of the ruck, join from the hindmost feet and you must be fully bound. Standing in front of the ball with an arm on the guy next to you, preventing players pressuring the SH, ping you're offisde.

    But as with all PMBs they all nod sagely, say yes sir, then do the exact thing they agree not to at the first ruck.....

    Save the oxygen. Don't make it part of the PMB and then just nail it the first time you think it's necessary

    How many times have we heard this?
    I saw 3 FKs today alone for crooked feeds. I like it.

    Personally, I reckon Pascal Gaüzère had a good game in the Wales v Scotland match. He's growing on me.
