    [In-goal] Re: 6.11.A

    At my level it's much more likely to be a discarded tackle bag, drinks bottle holder, dog walker, dog without walker, stray child or other team taking a short cut to their own pitch.

    [In-goal] Re: 6.11.A

    Thats how I read the law. Just struck me as being not particularly fair if, through no fault of the ball carrier, he/she concedes an attacking scrum.

    Same reply as Crossref - I would allow the replacement in all 4 cases (as I would also for the YC scenarios).

    [In-goal] Re: 6.11.A

    Looking at the second part of that law,

    6.11.b. If the ball is in possession of a defending player, the referee awards a touch down where the contact took place

    Am I right in thinking then...

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    This has got to be the basis of the way forward. Reward positive play and find a way to encourage teams to commit more players to the breakdown to decongest other areas of the pitch:

    [6N] Re: Jalibert non-try

    Nothing wrong with Slades actions that I can see, he knocks the ball, backwards out of Jalibert's hands and that's fine for me.

    I can see the point he is trying to make regarding the tackle but I...

  8. Re: England v France massive refereeing controversy

    Ha ha, good to see someone has a sense of humour. Didn't he get swapped out of a European game in France after he received threats following his performance in the England v France fixture last year?

    Still plenty of time for those positive covid tests to emerge yet and scupper the game altogether. Meanwhile several BBC reporters are found bound and gagged behind the England team hotel and no one...
  10. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    All penalties need to be taken without delay. I think a quick penalty is only referred to in the laws with reference to it being taken before the opposition have had time to retire the full distance...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    The difficulty with over defining this is that you may not like the results. Looking at the replay it seems to me that at no point do May's legs lead his head and arms (as defined in the article as a...
  13. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    As ever, once the minutiae is examined, it is possible to argue almost anything. What I am sure about though is if PG blows that for a knock on, very little would have been said subsequently and...

  15. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    In this instance I think the law is pretty clear and a rewrite would not do anything to help. The current law list 3 occasions when a knock-on occurs:

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    It does seem counterintuitive but no more so than a game in which senior coaches think their best chance of winning is by having less possession. I suspect the change was brought about because having...

    That ball is apparently still in the ruck.

    Re: Caterpillar

    I agree with Decorily, the caterpillar is, at least more akin to a ruck than some other stuff that goes on. However the perceived problem could be solved by using existing law. I dont understand why...
  20. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Whilst finding the conversation between referee and TMO interesting I've always felt uneasy that it means that the TMO and AR's can't actually say what they mean hence the need for coded language...
  21. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    Im not sure thats correct. The question was, is there a mechanism which would allow the referee to disallow the try after he had called time on. The answer to that is Yes. The Referee could have...

    Just this in spades. Considerable portions of rugby law are subjective. On any given day I could probably be persuaded that May's try was a dive or a jump but I'd be consistent in not considering it...
