• Rugby World Cup 2011 Scam

    RugbyRefs.com has been made aware through it's members that there are certain undersirables out there that are trying to con you out of your information pretending to be running an IRB backed competition. This is a scam, we urge all rugby enthusiasts to check before they enter any competition. Never email your details for an entry.

    The following email from the IRB outlines the warning:

    To: Secretaries / Chief Executive Officers of Unions and Regional Associations in Membership of the IRB
    From: David CarrigyHead of External & Member Relations
    Date: July 29, 2011
    Re: Online Scams

    Members of the global Rugby family should be alert to a new scam that attempts to obtain personal details and bank account information by informing victims that they have won an official Rugby World Cup 2011 themed sweepstake.

    Those targeted by the scam are informed via email by people purporting to be from the IRB that they are the lucky winners of a sweepstake to commemorate Rugby World Cup 2011 with winnings of up to GBP 1.5 million.

    To make a claim, victims are asked to submit their personal details to an unofficial email address. As Rugbyís governing body we wish to assure you that the IRB is not in the business of running any form of sweepstake or money-themed competition.

    The IRB views this matter seriously and is bringing this matter to the attention of all member Unions so that the global Rugby family can be vigilant and avoid being duped.

    The International Rugby Board would like to make it clear that it does not operate and has never operated any form of sweepstake.

    Yours sincerely,

    David Carrigy
    Head of External & Member Relations

    Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Thread Starter: Flish

    Iím English, Iím biased, but not convinced the French ref is having a good game. In reverse order; 2nd Welsh try, for me the Welsh winger is in possession as trying to gather the ball, knocks forward on to himself, doesnít regather therefore a knock on. 1st try, kudos to Wales for spotting...

    PK after the try - with a difference

    Thread Starter: Ian_Cook

    Saw this while standing on the sideline watching a preseason club game last night.... Player does an Arlo* on the tryscorer after half time has expired, resulting in an immediate YC. After the conversion, the referee blew for half time, but stated that he would award a PK to the opponents...

    I am currently sitting watching Leicester City play Arsenal. Play was stopped for a VAR (TMO) review, but I noticed that unlike Rugby the clock continues running.My question is, do the law makers in one sport have meetings/discussions with other sports to discuss problems and laws? I feel the...
