    Re: Refs returning after lockdown

    I've done a couple of adult/U18 matches here; even since the lockdown came back there are still occasional intra-club youth matches, as these are allowed. I noticed I was slightly rusty on some of...

    Re: knock on in touch

    Sorry, I wasn't clear.
    Had black kicked from hand, and the ball had gone over the plane of touch and been caught or hit the ground, then black has brought it out and gold gets the lineout.

    Re: knock on in touch

    In this case it was a penalty, so it was Black to throw in either way. But had black kicked from hand, and the ball had gone over the plane of touch, then black has brought it out and gold gets the...

    Re: knock on in touch

    It seems wrong that if Gold catches it, leaves/misses it altogether, knocks it backwards into touch, etc, black has brought it out, but with the knock-on gold has brought it out. I understand the...

    Re: deliberate into touch after knock-on

    In practice, scrum blue for the first (if I've not called advantage), penalty green for the second. Certainly in the case of last weekend, where there's a clear and obvious chance of regathering.

    Re: deliberate into touch after knock-on

    This was recently addressed in another thread. I think (at least for me) foul = dangerous, unfair, misconduct and not obstruction or repeated offences.

    If green knocked on and blue started...

    Dropping the ball and missing the kick, knock on. tackled before the kick can connect, knock on.

    [In-goal] Re: Peter O'Mahony Yellow Card

    I suspect the most common example and the one they had in mind is repeated infringements - yes, reading literally the card is for foul play, but the offence the team is being punished for is usually...

    [Line out] Re: Offside at LO - change in law?

    Maybe to remove the ambiguity of "a player" meaning "any player" or "one player" (although "that player" later implies they had a specific case in mind).

    For example, 6.14: "The referee may alter...

    [Line out] Re: Offside at LO - change in law?

    Thanks for the replies, my mistake. It was the combination of 18.35 (setting the 10m line) followed by "once the ball..." that I read as consecutive, rather than 18.36 being a special case.

    [Line out] Offside at LO - change in law?

    As I learnt it and understand it, the 10m offside line for non-participating players at a line-out lasts until the lineout is over - ball passed out or maul past the LoT. Looking in the lawbook...

    In Holland (with cases climbing heavily, hospitalisations marginally, and an increase in lockdown measures) the top league (~level 5-6 RFU) is starting this weekend, the rest the weekend after.

    Re: How Long will He Likely be Banned for?

    I think the last couple of years (since that hit at the end of ENG-SA) he's been doing a lot better at keeping low and wrapping. In the RWC he was on the receiving end of two RC high tackles.

    They have plenty of local wildlife in the region... Exeter Otters? Exmouth Ammonites? Dartmoor Ponies?

    Google says the Exeter Otters is already taken by a wheelchair basketball club, alas.

    Both teams' forwards face off in a simultaneous haka, and the scrum half does what he normally does and rolls the ball straight to one of his locks. :D

    [Law] Re: new boy questions round 2

    FK advantage can be played, it's pretty rare as it's usually an advantage in a scrum or lineout that you don't want to let breathe. But consider: blue QTI, red 7 blocks the ball inside the 5m line...
