    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you... you must be a rugby referee!

    The only time I use it is as a reminder after a stoppage etc or, as I stated above , when asked by someone what's happening!

    I think you are supposed to use it to signal that the team has chosen the option of a scrum

    In the weeds in my neck of the woods, I still occasionally have to yell at forwards who hear a short whistle and automatically retreat 10m, especially this early in the season.

    are you seriously saying that some ref coaches will comment on that?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Well, no, I said it with a smiley face !

    But yes, long ago I was told that, both in person and .. when I queried it .. again here on this forum.

    And I do observe that it's a signal that novice refs use very frequently but experienced refs use seldomly, so I infer that it is still being taught away from.

    Do you do it ?

    only if it clarifies some confusion. But I'm sure I could find a lot more relevant & useful items to bring to a novice ref's attention.

    The agree .. it's a bit like using the wrong type of whistle

    But on the other hand when I was a brand new ref and someone told me 'here is two or three things Y u are doing that , while not bad in themselves, mark you out as a newbie "

    Well , I would have been pleased to learn that, and to stop doing them

    And on that theme .. here are some things I would say mark out a novice

    Type of whistle is one
    House signals is another
    Long and complicated PMB is another
    Automatic advantage after every single offence is another

    Not limited to newbies IME, but usually its coach referees that I suspect have never done an ELRA/are under a society's care.

    Its woeful - when I see it done I just wonder how much rugby they actually _understand_
