    Hmmnn ? ,

    QBE predicted England with 24 point margin - Result was Eng + 31

    Prediction of Ire +7, Result Ireland +2

    wasn't that a closer prediction ?

    Interchanges, with HIA for any potential head injury.
    If they pass the HIA they can return.
    Obviously in the weeds - as National 1 and below is known - any potential head injury means removal (recognise and replace) with no possibility of coming back.
    Everyone else can go off and come back at a later interchange.

    With 8 on the bench 12 interchanges would be permitted. After that you carry on with 14/go to uncontested scrums. Even for blood or front rows.
    I have seen sides get 6 injuries, but not seen them use all ten interchanges and then get an injury.

    Also if cuts significant verbiage from the laws - so must be good.

    I think you are missing the point VM75.
    The bookies had both Ireland and England to win their away game; both results were predictable.
    Few bookies thought Scotland would lose so heavily.

    Last November nobody thought Ireland was going to put over 30 points on RSA
    Prediction: Ireland 20 South Africa 20
    Actual result: Ireland 38 South Africa 3
    Consequently the QBS prediction was miles off.

    Compare:
    However, in the All Blacks victory over France and Wales’ brave loss in Cardiff the supercomputer was scarily accurate. Being a total of eleven points off in the two games, with the fixture in Paris eerily similar.

    Prediction: Wales 20 Australia 24
    Actual result: Wales 21 Australia 29

    Prediction: France 16 New Zealand 35
    Actual result: France 18 New Zealand 38
    So a margin of error of +9 points over the two predictable results this weekend was actually even better than that November weekend.

    My bad. I thought you were suggesting that an Ireland away win was predictable. IMO it was far from being so.

    I was not alone in thinking the Irish were favourites to win in Paris.
    All things being equal Ireland should get off to a winning start ahead of their three successive home games.

    Another good indicator is, or rather was, the odds available down the bookies on matchday.

    When did the HIA protocol of not allowing the replacement to kick at goal until he was made a permanent replacement change ?

    Any replacement can come on and kick at goal if replacing a kicker injured by foul play

    Last tweak was 26 August 2017.
    The amendment will come into effect globally from Aug. 26 although it will be applied in the Rugby Championship, which kicks off this weekend.
    Temporary replacement for head injury assessment was introduced permanently into Law in May 2015. This document titled, World Rugby Head Injury Assessment (HIA) Protocol has been developed to support Law 3.11 and Regulation 10 which are both relevant to this temporary replacement for head injury assessment (HIA) and the management of concussion.
    Were things done differently during the trial period prior to that? Timeline article on HIA
    August 2012 to July 2013 - Introduction of Pitch-Side Concussion Assessment (PSCA) which included a five-minute temporary substitution

    * August 2013 to May 2014 - More rigid and standardised post-game follow up procedures

    * August 2014 to date - Name changes from PSCA to HIA and the HIA tool has been enhanced. The enhanced tool containing more assessments required increased time to complete so the temporary substitution period was increased from five to 10 minutes

    Yes but in a situation where there has been no foul play the replacement couldnt kick at goal until they were made permanent.

    When did that change ?

    Please

    So there is some one going off for an HIA , and at the same time a totally unconnected PK ?
    Are you sure the replacement is allowed to take the kick ?
    Did it happen at the weekend ?
