    2nd incident: Straight...

    Tough one

    Q1. Is the kick "unsuccessful" because the kicker never actually attempted it due to the early charge?

    A2. The law does not specify.

    Q2. "Ref sends them back and tells them no...

    Re: Rugby 12s

    This works in cricket because of the nature of the gave - individual players with personal followings facing off. Kohli v Joffra, McCullum v Curran etc

    You don't have so much that in rugby.

    Correct assessment IMO, but of course, you need to be careful not to assume you know what the players are thinking.

    Wrong. Rotation is slowed down by moving mass away from the centre of rotation
