    Re: Line out maul

    It was to allow a "Peeler". We did have a spell of 'musical chairs' a few years back to confuse the opposition but we all came to believe that it looked silly, and it died a natural death

    Re: thoughts on this one

    Left over from the days of forming a divot for the ball -or a pile of sand, the ball could fall over -the chargers prevented the kick With the new fangled plastic trumpets the ball does not fall over.

  6. [Law] Re: Can you have a quick goal line drop out?

    A fabulous scenario that no-one could have imagined. Scrum 5 is fair, option to retake kick by receiving team? I bet no-one queried your decision.

    Re: Charity Game with scrums and new laws!

    The problem for me if you call "Taken Back" is that you are giving a possible advantage of avoiding an error to the defending team -to the disadvantage of the attacking team.

    Re: Charity Game with scrums and new laws!

    Please only vocalise 'taken back' IF the ball is kicked -the kicker should know the laws without you coaching him.

    Another example of a clear law being 'simplified' in the last re-write.

    [Law] Re: Why isn't this pre binding penalised ?

    Tackling two oncoming players at the same time is more dangerous than tackling just one. Perhaps this is another reason to encourage lower tackles rather than just bash into each other.

    Take every comment from an Assessor, coach, player, spectator, barman etc with a pinch of salt; there MAY be something in what they say, or they may be biased, or unsighted, or not up to date on the...

    ALWAYS write down actual kick-off time for both halves on the score card; you WILL press the wrong button at some time in you refereeing career. (Ask me how I know).

    If you make a mistake you can be sure a lot of the players know it. Best to say you got it wrong straight away -and apologise; either overturn the decision or re-start with a scrum. Deflect any...
  24. [Law] Re: Should the ref be able to appoint a Qualified AR?

    My PERSONAL view is that it has to be the same for both sides -two TJ or two AR. You might inevitably have more confidence in the view of a trusted colleague but probably best to treat them both the...
