    Re: When is advantage over

    My guideline has always been that if a kick is taken under advantage that was clearly voluntary, then the kicker lives with the outcome. Advantage is not just a free shot where you can come back if...

    Re: When is advantage over

    They could have opted for a scrum anyway. How far back was the penalty spot?

    Re: When is advantage over

    If the kick was taken under pressure, then it might be deemed no advantage.

    Re: knock on in touch

    I agree with Ian Cook.

    The legalistic argument that a knock-on can only take place in the field of play is a red herring. The legalistic refutation is that since the ball is not technically in...
  7. [Line out] Re: Frances first try against Ireland - Should we have gone back for a lineout?

    We do need the plane of touch in some contexts eg determining where the throw-in is after a kick to touch, as 10.1.2 says.

    Re: deliberate into touch after knock-on

    Given that he could play advantage, I don't see why he could not short-circuit that option and go straight for a PK if appropriate.

    Re: deliberate into touch after knock-on

    If there is a knock-on or forward pass, you call "Advantage". If foul play follows, you award the PK.

    Re: deliberate into touch after knock-on

    A knock-on does not in itself stop play.

    Or maybe such an angle was not available? It is certainly the crucial point.

    I have said many times that the so-called "Laws" of rugby are not anything like statute law and should not be interpreted that way. I think the interrupted kick being treated as a knock-on is an...

    [Line out] Re: Hooker with both feet in the field of play?

    At the time he releases the ball, his action is legal. If an action by the opponent prevents him from completing the kick, that original action suddenly becomes illegal. I think that is silly.
