    Because that's a secondary duty. The other three are primary ones that really should be 2nd nature.

    yes, but why?

    "sorry, ref, I didn't get the number of the high tackler cos I was too busy making sure the lineout is in the right spot".

    Seems arse-about to me and I expect it harks back to TJs not trying to do the ref's job for him.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Not sure to be honest, probably something to do with that.

    Most of the stuff an AR does would be instinctive - wouldn't it? After all, they are experienced Refs themselves.

    I can imagine some "fine-tuning" eg I know one Ref who prefers sorting out offside in open play himself rather than an AR calling it in. I've only had ARs once and I just asked to be told of something obvious I had missed. They were good. When you have to think fast, the last thing you want is somebody talking in your ear - well it was for me anyway.
