    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    This in spades. I'd rather give the right decision (if I can), than the expected one. Yes players are gonna disagree but you can only ref what you see.

    I had a ladies match last weekend (not the...

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    CR I'd rather encourage flowing attacking rugby. Rather than blowing when might not be needed. But at grassroots, yeah, we call that as forward as that's what's expected, might not be factually true,...

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    CR, why's it a gotcha? The ball carrier slowed down, you saw MA waving the play on, the Welsh boy reacted and ran in to score. Then it was checked to see if it was a knock on or not by the Ref Team....

    Re: Scotland's first try

    I have the same feelings about player leaving the LO to be in a position to get the ball in a Maul. But every single international team does it. So I have no issue with that part of it. Seems...

    Re: England vs Australia - Last Try

    Pretty sure I saw an Aussie player doing exactly the same thing a few mins before.


    I've just had a look and it was literally the run leading up to the steal. G16.... Ruck at 79:44 ball was...

    Re: Scotland's first try

    My previous post was specifically to answer the question about whether the ball had left the LO at the point it was passed back to the pod at the front. It's already been established that this...

    Ok so according to this criteria....


    The lineout ends when:

    The ball or a player in possession of the ball:

    leaves the lineout; or
    enters the area between the touchline and the...

    Re: Scotland's first try

    I understand what CR is saying. I think that the wording is so a player can peel to receive a tap down or pop pass and continue a run. The aspect of this for me would be the continue moving. Watson...

    Re: Scotland's first try

    TBF I was dubious too (Scotsman here). I think that they said the ball was passed back to 7 after the contact. But there definitely seemed to be 2 players latched way before the contact. I'd have...

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    Age Grade variations are there to encourage positive play, which in turn increases enjoyment at the young level. Then as they get older, more recognisable skills are introduced, such as the tackle,...

    [Law] Re: Kick at posts.

    Yeah, I noticed them too, especially the somersault one. Looked like he may have caught the player at the side on the head on his way over. But I was more asking if my thoughts matched with the kick...

    [Law] Kick at posts.

    So roughly 3 mins into the below video. Team (I assume) has elected to kick at goal. I assume this as the tee has been brought on. Kicker IMO doesn't make an attempt to kick for goal. Would you guys...
  13. [Law] Re: Ball kicked hits overhanging tree branch and falls back onto pitch

    Thing is the ball hasn't touched anything beyond the touchline. Yes the tree is rooted beyond the try line, but the branches aren't. You seem to be deeming that the tree has taken the ball into...

    [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    Watching the vids, most are difficult to tell. Looks like most were quite close and the rucks may have formed either just before or just after you get your hands on the ball. At low levels, I'd be...

    This weekend I have a game to play in Dundee on Saturday and a Ladies Regional league match (again in Dundee but at a different Club) on Sunday.

  17. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    I hope you're not a ref coach. I'm a relatively new ref, I'm trying to understand why you feel it is dangerous. You seem to either not know why it's dangerous, unable to explain to me why its...
  18. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    So all you've really stated is that it was dangerous. Please tell me, exactly what about it is dangerous. You've not laid out the conditions for this dangerous play.
  19. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    But the act of running into someone at speed is inherently dangerous. You've said that we want to eradicate dangerous behaviours. All I'm saying is that if we're doing this for the tackler, we need...
  20. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    That's fair enough, I've seen folks saying they seen a wrap, personally I'm not so sure about that. But the issue that most on the forum seem to have is either the timing or force used. I've no issue...
  21. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    So what you're saying is someone like LRZ can run at full speed and stop immediately? The point is if you're running at full speed, one can't stop or change direction immediately. You need either...
  22. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Fair enough, so we're gonna red card ball carriers for running into tacklers too?? After all they do run at speed and can't possibly be in control. So this is also against 9.11.
  23. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    If, if, if.... To my knowledge we don't ref by ifs. IF he had made head contact then absolutely, red card offence and a ban. But he didn't, he tackled a player in the act of kicking. The ball had...
  24. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    I'm sorry but this kind of hit is EXACTLY the reason that a lot of people watch rugby for. Yes there's the All Black style of rugby which is at times simply mesmorising. But at the same time the...

    [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    Yeah in order
    1. Hands on the ground before going for the ball.
    2. I also didn't see a clear release
    3. Nothing wrong with this ones, but I literally had to go frame by frame, perhaps the ref...
