    [In-goal] Re: Goal line DO vs Scrum 5

    I’ve no idea what happened when you blew, but what is the decision on an unsuccessful maul which started in the field of play and ends up in goal? I had one at the weekend and gave a scrum to the...

    Re: Bledisloe 3 - the sacrifice of the...

    Two RC for me. Red lifted their foot and made contact with the head. Blue lifted the player and effectively dropped him on his head/neck.
  3. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    I like some of the arguments you are making Arabcheif, I just don’t think they apply in this instance. It was a dangerous ‘tackle’. For me it was more akin to a shoulder charge than a tackle. I...

    Re: Fuel problems

    Not for me - but then I drive an electric car :smile:

    Also the panic doesn’t seem to have spread to this part of Scotland. No queues at the local stations near me, all have fuel.

    Re: Quins v Worcs: Noah Heward YC

    There’s a difference to jumping for the ball to avoid a tackle, a jumping in general play to avoid a tackle. I am not going to reward a player in possession of the ball who jumps in general play to...

    Re: Quins v Worcs: Noah Heward YC

    My initial reaction was aligned with yours Ian - a ridiculous YC. But on reflection I agree with the YC decision. 14 blue had no chance of recovering the ball. Yes 15 jumped high to gain protection...
  7. Re: Interesting story reference tackle height. Where will it lead?

    I have no idea how you extrapolate from an article wholly about limiting contact in training, to a point about tackle height.

    However, on the article, 15 minutes seems a very low limit given a...
  8. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    It’s tackle is a really good example of where blindly following a protocol does not work for all scenarios. Yes, contact is below the shoulders, yes there is (probably) a wrap, yes there is no tip...

    Re: thoughts on this one

    I consider any movement by the kicker as the commencement of their approach. There is nothing in the law that says the approach must be forward. If the trigger move is a step back or sideways, then...

    I have no idea what you are trying to demonstrate here. In this instance, there IS a reason for his leg to be there, he is attempting to kick a ball. With the jump, his leg is in an unnatural...

    Re: Bledisloe 3 - the sacrifice of the...

    I see no reason for his leg to be in a position where he strikes another player in the head. If he chooses to put his leg there, or his leg ends up there as a result of how he has jumped, he...

    Re: Line out maul

    I’m not sure we should be interpreting why a law was brought into play in terms of how to referee it. This scenario would breach new laws on a flying wedge/pre bound players, so if they move down...

    Re: Blocker at a Ruck

    When I watched the Lions series I saw this a lot, but on watching in slow motion the ‘blocking’ player was usually behind the back foot of the ruck, but in front of the kicker. So not offside at the...

    The fact that some games are exciting, and most games have much more in play time that the Lions/SA tests suggests its not simply a problem with the laws. Some teams will always take things to the...

    Re: Cavalry Charge no longer illegal

    I like the removal of the Calvary charge definition as it removes something that was illogical. You can take a run up towards a ruck occurring within 5m of the goal line, but you can’t do it from a...

    Re: Global Law Trials

    Bit of a mixed bag but some of these are still a mess. Why leave ambiguity with the flying wedge definition, which implies it does not exist in open field play, but then use examples from rucks?

  18. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    RC for me. I understand all the arguments about a relatively low degree of force. But the player went into a tackle high, had time to lower and chose not not, direct impact to the head, no...

    No - although in this case it was an OK position given how the ball was played, if blue had kept the ball and taken into contact the referee is on the wrong side of the tackle area, also not in a...

    Good to see (hear?) - just need to take the next step and enforce the 5 seconds. Couple of times s/h kicked at 7 or 8 seconds.

    The referee is the sole judge of fact. Doesn’t matter if the platters agree or not and want to argue. Make the call. It doesn’t need painted lines.

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    It’s a very simple thing for a referee to manage. Warn the kicker they have 60 seconds, tell them at 30 and 15. You’re unlikely to penalise them first time they go over the time limit, but if you...

    [Law] Re: Dupont try FR v EN 2021 6 Nats

    I’m really lost with this one. It’s not legal to deliberately tap or knock the ball ahead to catch it, however you are allowed to juggle for possession. Given he probably couldn’t have gained...
