  1. [Ruck] Re: Playing the ball while on the floor not been tackled?

    In this instance I think his actions potentially denied the opposition possession and even at U14s I would probably penalise this (and explain to them why). Had there been no member of the opposition...

    Must be catching. Vermeulen at it also (had an earlier one also but leg lift not so pronounced).

    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2021/22?

    Thought my pre-season fitness training had gone well so offered to ref two games yesterday. First one U13, 20 mins each way no problem. Second one, U16s kicked off just as the sun came out. Mid-way...

    In general, given the proliferaton of kicking coaches, I am surprised that any professional kicker still has a movement during their set up that could be misinterpreted as the beginning of the...

    You are absolutely correct in your logic. The problem is, of course, so were the disciplinary committee who ruled it accidental and therefore not foul play. That's the reason World Rugby need to...

    Ha ha, did he mention which side were likely to leave the line-out first? My money would be on the throwing side to ensure the maul is in place when the catcher returns to the deck but I guess he...

    I just dont think that's credible. There are many occasions on which that is just accidental. Ive kicked players in the face who have been attempting to charge down a kick Ive just made. Should that...

    [Law] Re: "Why the **** did you do that?"

    I think I'd rather avoid the inevitable conflict that would come from the oppo 9 reaching into the pack to retrieve the ball. Would rather blow and restart the game cleanly. I think you could sell...

    Re: Blocker at a Ruck

    I might not like the tactic but I think it is a legal exploitation of the laws providing the player doesnt move. I think it is much more of a liberty allowing the scrum half to walk beyond the back...

    Re: 50/22 no good

    Ive watched a couple of pre-season friendlies at Nat 1/2 level and I reckon there were 8-10 50/22s in the two games. What struck me though was that they seemed to be predominantly used from first or...
