    Re: Focus for Changes

    Last time I saw the U20 6N it was so much more fun to watch than the grown-up version because they waste si little time at restarts and rucks are well, rucks - you know, players actually on their...

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    Oh oops, I take it all back! I just watched a video of the try and he was never in possession, he was chasing a bouncing ball which had been kicked through. The ball is in the air when he makes his...

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    Well, that would make sense. Clearly Am has lost control of the ball just before grounding it - otherwise it would have been grounded by his hand while he was holding it, not grounded by his wrist...

    Ah OK, thanks didds 😊

    Does anyone have any law references or definitions - maybe from older law books?

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    The try by Am... Nigel Owens was saying he wouldn't have given it because Am didn't have control. I thought it was just downwards pressure? I tried checking to 2021 law book but it just talks about...

  8. [Law] Re: When and why the intentional knock-on rule was added to the rugby laws?

    Regarding the history part of the question, back in the 1970s there was no "deliberate knock on" as we currently understand it - and if a defender knocked on when trying to intercept the last pass to...

    Good point didds - and yes, Sam W does seem to be able to see things from both sides, which is lovely.

    Re: France Vs Wales

    I'm with Nigel Owens on this:

    1. The PT was nailed on, 7 points to Wales and YC to France.
    2. Liam Williams was a non-penalty, so no 2nd YC for Wales
    3. The penalty against Wales No 10 for high...

    Re: France Vs Wales

    Just watched it again, and to be fair it looks better than at first viewing.

    Although straight off feet - and LP immediately extends the arm.

    And, it's the same player who gets red carded for...

    Re: France Vs Wales

    To be fair though, those two blue defenders hadn't had any effect up to that point in stopping the maul. So unless red tripped up over their own bootlaces it's hard to see any probable outcome apart...

    Very well managed, and clear and calm communication.

    Couple of calls I didn't really understand... No PT for a driving maul going at pace pulled down 5m out... and in the dying minutes just before...

    [6N] Rolling on the ground - Owen Farrell

    Owen Farrell was penalised for rolling on the ground with the ball just before half time in the match today vs Ireland (about 39 mins on the clock).

    Commentators seemed to think it was harsh as...

    [6N] Re: Jalibert non-try

    Thanks DocY - for me it looks as if white has knocked the hand or forearm of blue, rather than the ball, and then blue drops the ball onto his knee, and it bounces dead. The article seems completely...

    [6N] Re: Jalibert non-try

    Thanks for the video link. Seems to me any contact Curry has with the blue player is incidental, and is not material to the tackle. He doesn't grasp him (wrap arms) so much as steady himself ready to...

    [6N] Re: Jalibert non-try

    The article was saying that the logic of "if there is no realistic chance of regathering it is a penalty" should apply to a knock into touch/dbl just as it does in a knock-on. I'm not sure I see the...

  25. [6N] Italy v Wales massive refereeing controversy

    Great game by Wayne Barnes. I really liked his way of saying how everything was, it made,it all so clear. I don't think there was one decision where I was left thinking "huh?"
