    Two fantastic messages that should go out to all referees, at all standards:

    [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Uncontested scrum / numbers debarcle

    Although the Ref made it very clear it was all avoidable. I felt that the genesis of the problem was the lack of management of Leicester's loose head, he had been continually pulling it down and was...

    Re: France v Scotland

    So why does the law say what it does: "or scored in a more advantageous position"?

    Where across the pitch is the dividing line between more or less advantageous?

    Re: France v Scotland

    We cannot say for sure where the try could have been scored but the defender tackled him without the ball. It was maybe fortunate that the attacker had momentum to still touch it down.

    Could the...

    I think you deliberately miss the point, Jamie George put the long pass to Tuilagi on the nose, some others can do it, some can do it well under pressure and may have even tried it, Cipriani or...

    Re: Genge vs Sexton round 1

    Poor little whiter than white jonny. You can see he already has Itoje's head guard in his hand so extremely probable that he is holding Genge in/down. Not to say that is correct but it's almost like...

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    Don't need to gift points as the skill of the kicker is worthy of reward.

    However, teams have demonstrated that they can do it, if they want to, and therefore do not need all the allowed time.

    [Law] Re: Exeter Quins

    Ref clearly states, vid time 2:48, "9 tackling player off the ball"!

    I would also be concerned about the way the black 9 is stood on white 4's right ankle!

    No have to disagree with that, at 27:10 the Welsh scrum half has already got his hands on the ball and then the Welsh counter ruck he is left outside the ruck at 27:12 he rolls it forward back into...

    I am mixed in my thoughts as the defending team you want to get the ball as far away from people like Itoje, who will always be aggressive in charging kicks down, as you can. But for the game to be...

    Happy with that.

    So let's penalise those players who recklessly jump into busy space, endangering themselves and others.
