  1. [Law] Re: Should the ref be able to appoint a Qualified AR?

    But there would be no issue, with insurance, if your Union authorised you do appoint one or two ARs.
  2. [Law] Re: Should the ref be able to appoint a Qualified AR?

    I'd like to see my Union (WRU) offer older refs, who are feeling it is time to retire, the chance to be come ARs at the community level. We have lost a lot of good communuity refs who feel their...

    [Law] Re: What's your worst nightmare?

    I once forgot to put the clock back on and only notice some time later when a player asked "how long to go ref?". I looked at the time an guess ho long was left based on 14:30 hours + 80 mins +...

    Cueto's non try was just that NO try. It was a good call.

    Re: Disgraceful disciplinary decision

    What twaddle. The two offences were the same. In the old days Mahler would have been decked and the referee would have been looking the other way. Same thing with the latest incident. Would not be...

    [Tackle] Re: missed something since lockdown

    There should be a fair contest. If the ball carrying side wants 90% retention, they need to work at it.

    [Tackle] Re: missed something since lockdown

    Normal this. Reward the team in possession. Then people complain so the is a 180 degree turn and reward the tacklers team. Next season it will be back the other way again.

    Suggestion: Require all...

  14. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    He was not reacting to an Owens comment was he!

    Kaino said to the Welshman: "Slap-down, sir!"
    To which Owens replied: "Not that I saw."
    And Toulouse back-rower retorted: "Even Superman misses...

    Re: Steve Thompson et al

    There is a big difference between:

    repeated significant contacts to the leg. Outcome possible muscle damage / broken bone

    and

    repeated significant contacts to the head. Outcome possible long...

    Re: Steve Thompson et al

    I agree with Crossref 100% on this.
  18. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    Spot on. Do try to be wjhat yo uare not. Clearly it worked for Nigel. Players speak of him fondly. Would they do that if the found him rude etc?

    Crossref has a bee in his bonnet. Perhaps Nigel...

    Well said.
  20. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    SPOT ON! Put far better than I could.
  21. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    THe point is that there isno evidence to suggest that the players agree with you. Nice of you to take offence on their behalf though.
  22. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    You seem to be in very small group who don't get it. Perhaps that says more about you than Nigel?
  23. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    Sense of humour and management technique transplant needed.

    I've not spoke to one player from Semi-pro up who has objected to Nigel's style. Plenty of "armchair experts" hate him. His style is not...

    Re: Steve Thompson et al

    The worrying thing about Halfpenny is this, why are the coaching staff telling him: "Sort it out or you're dropped!"?
