    Re: Eng v SA: Kholisi YC

    I didn't see it clearly. I *think* when the maul went down white 4 didn't have any challenge on the ball, then he went onto it as the ball became available. If he was on the ball when the maul went...

    In his day, people also played to the whistle and didn't throw up their arms and stare at the ref.

    Re: Eng v SA: Kholisi YC

    Thanks for your reply!



    My point was that it's refereed correctly according to the guidelines. They don't say it's a highjump contest, but the practical effects of what they do say make it so....
  4. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    So as soon as you take the PK, all players within 10m are onside and can challenge for the ball? Some mistake, surely?

    TAS Analytics is a blight on the game. I've never seen such a consistently misinformed and one-eyed source. It's toxic, bases its entire worldview on referee incompetence, and is more often incorrect...

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    I thought it was backwards watching in real time.

    Earlier this season I reffed a match in which blue 12 was ahead of the kicker, and red were racing back against (onside) blue 11 to get to the...

    He's in a position to receive the ball, though. Does he clearly and obviously stop moving?

    [Scrum] Re: Off side how far

    Agreed, and I'm not sure I understand the lesson. They're "learning" a law that doesn't exist, and may rightly feel aggrieved when an opponent under a different ref is allowed to.

    Re: Scotland's first try

    I see your point, but your pet peeve is perfectly legal as the law stands and it's hard to see how you could make a consistently enforceable law against it.

    No. They're playing the game, trying to score - if there's something they're doing wrong it is a technical offence that you can call under another law.

    If they were doing something disrespectful,...

    Re: Scotland's first try

    The jumper passes to blue 5, though. Blue 7 puts his hands on the ball in setting up the maul, but the ref on the day decided it was not C&O that he took it off 5 before the maul was formed, so the...

    I already referred to that. So, going from the definition:
    The lineout stops once the players stop waiting to receive the ball?
    Or as soon as a maul starts to be set up and the players are no...

    Re: England vs Australia - Last Try

    I think the point is that if you're not going to blow up for material advantage that leads to a try, why have the law at all?

    I'm aware of the lawbook, but thank you anyway :) However, this is clearly not a definition that stands up to scrutiny with other laws.

    Re: Scotland's first try

    It would help if it even started with a useful definition of what is meant by the lineout. It's currently not much better than "a lineout is a set piece for throwing in. Called a lineout. Good luck"....

    It's not correct, but it's not such an affront to rugby values as to need blowing up the first time. A word at the next occasion and then ping if it continues seems fair?

    The LO is over when the ball leaves the LO, no? The LO is not well-defined, but the second receiver looked very much to be a part of it.
