    [Law] Re: 20.10 behind the kicker at a PK

    It only says that they must remain behind the ball. By construct they can only do that if they are behind it originally. So players that are not behind the ball when the PK/FK is awarded, and who...
  2. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

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

    It was a knock-on by the Irish player behind the 'juggler', as confirmed by the TMO. I think that it is perfectly clear that the 'juggling' was not deemed to be a knock-on (as, from memory, the last...

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    Cue OB to explain that the original point of the game was to score goals, through winning the opportunity to attempt (='try') the kick.

    But I would certainly vote to halve the time allowed for PK...

    [Law] Re: Dropping out of the line

    [QUOTE=Balones;373643]

    My point is that it is simpler to penalise when it is easy to discriminate between actions. It is not possible to tell whether a step out of the line is permitted or not as...

    [Law] Re: Dropping out of the line

    Particularly when changing positions (18.17a) and peeling (to receive the ball, 18.28) are permitted; it is not as though every change in the straight lines is liable to penalty.

    Re: England v France

    Equity trumps process? The referee has to be allowed to change his mind (because to do otherwise would be perverse, regardless of a tight interpretation of 6.14). However it should be his decision,...

    Having just watched it, it would have been very harsh to have penalised any-one in that play. I would word the situation differently: as Curry lands on his back the ball drops onto his chest from the...

    [In-goal] Re: PK after the try - with a difference

    What Law would prevent them doing so? It is a normal PK, after time has elapsed.

    [In-goal] Re: PK after the try - with a difference

    There is a difference between time being up and the end of the half. Once the referee declares that the half is ended, it is, surprisingly, ended. Until then, play out the penalties (and FKs and the...

    [In-goal] Re: PK after the try - with a difference

    I've changed my mind - 5.7b "A half ends ... unless the referee awards a ... penalty." He has awarded a penalty, so the half continues after time has expired.
  20. [Law] Re: What can you do with the ball after the mark?

    Would seem to me to be a very sensible move to indicate that the player is not making any move that can be interpreted to be 'advancing to kick' (because of course that's when the opposition can...

    Re: Legality of the ankle tap

    It mainly seems to be the Americans who equate an ankle tap to a 'trip', which is prohibited. In UK English a trip is a lower lib on leg action, not an upper limb on leg.

    He was offside at the tackle, which was not complete because the ball was still close enough to be in the area of the tackle. Law 14.10c.
