    Re: Springboks v Lions

    Yes. WR still has plenty of time to fly down one of the top French TMOs - no time difference and he could be there long in advance of Saturday's match.

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    Thank you. Yes, but there does seem to be a lack of uniformity even among the best.

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    Thank you, Balones. I find your points about communication most interesting. In RFU-land we have become used to a constant stream of instruction/comment/advice even from the very best, eg WB, LP. ...

    Re: Exeter v Wasps .. penalty

    I had not interpreted that word in that way, but I can see how it could be taken to mean cheating.

    I had been looking forward to a great match under WB, and when I heard that he was ill and then...

    So are we not allowed to comment on inadequate performances or on decisions that affect the result?
  6. Re: Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa

    Yes, the whistle went a lot, but that is because in all four games so far the referees have finally been applying the laws relating to the breakdown and offsides. Once the teams get used to playing...

    Re: Colour clash

    I felt that on Saturday Luke Pearce's shorts and socks were too similar to Italy's, but I guess elite refs have to wear sponsored kit too. Anyway, they spend so much time talking to the players that...
  8. Re: Saracens vs Bristol - Next maul penalty will go...

    We could ask who are making the laws.

    And Barnsey gave a YC and a PT - is that not a double whammy (though correct IMO)?

    Re: one flag up, one flag down

    When I was on the RFU TJ panel in its formative years from 90-95 we ALWAYS conferred before raising flags (or not).

    Yorkies aren't the only men to wear a flat 'at! Even Scousers, of whom I am one originally, do so.

    My Sunday newspaper contains a still photo which shows that Watson had an arm each side of Parkes in an upright tackle - both Watson's hands are shown behind Parkes's back. If that is not a...

    Re: Wales quickly taken PK...

    What are you agreeing with, Balones? That England needed to be more awake, or that the referee was wrong to allow the penalty to be taken while assorted bods were on/off the pitch?

    [RWC] Re: Referee Rankings

    Interesting, because he seemed to keep his worst performance of the season for Wasps v Quins. The fact that he had to march each team back 10 metres says it all.
  20. [6N] Re: 6 Nations launch event - questions for coaches/captains

    That also applies to the maul, specially one approaching the tryline, when players, esp backs, join from the side and in front of the ball-carrier. When did anyone last see that pinged?

    [Law] Re: Control , again .. Leicester v Gloucester

    Hmmm. So ref announcing no decision is a cop-out (specially for WB), and I still think the decision needs to be very clear, which it wasn't. And what happened to giving the benefit of the doubt to...

    [Law] Re: Control , again .. Leicester v Gloucester

    And what happened to C&O?
    Was it C&O that the ball-carrier lost control? Judging by the number of replays the TMO needed to look at, it was not C&O, therefore a poor decision.
