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

    Saw this while standing on the sideline watching a preseason club game last night....

    Player does an Arlo* on the tryscorer after half time has expired, resulting in an immediate YC.

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

    As always with this type of argument, its flawed. The game starts in a different place depending on whether the try is awarded or not, not to mention that the mindset of the players will be...

    Knock-on: When a player loses possession of the ball and it goes forward, or when a player hits the ball forward with the hand or arm, or when the ball hits the hand or arm and goes forward, and the...

    Re: Biggar Taken in Air?

    It doesn't quite quite work like that. The gist of the basketball rule is that a jumping player has the right to a clear landing zone if the landing zone was clear at the moment he jumps.

    If the...

    Re: Biggar Taken in Air?

    That's not the way the Laws are written or applied, but I agree 100% with your sentiment.

    It annoys me no end that a player is allowed to act with total disregard for the safety of others, and the...

    Re: knock on in touch

    Yes, that was my mistake. 2b should have been a line-out/scrum option to black because the Gold player effectively knocked the ball forward into touch.

    For those who believe that a knock can only...

    Re: knock on in touch

    Logically (as I see it)
    1. Kick in General play
    a. Ball knocked forward and next touched the ground in the FoP.... scrum Black
    b. Ball knocked forward and next touched the ground in touch,...
  8. [Line out] Re: Frances first try against Ireland - Should we have gone back for a lineout?

    This one

    LAW 18: TOUCH OR TOUCH-IN-GOAL

    1. The ball is in touch or touch-in-goal when :

    a. The ball or ball-carrier touches the touchline, touch-in-goal line or anything
    beyond.

    b....
  9. [Line out] Re: Frances first try against Ireland - Should we have gone back for a lineout?

    All well and good if that someone is an AR and not a member of the home club.
  10. [Line out] Re: Frances first try against Ireland - Should we have gone back for a lineout?

    That was my point... its simpler to just use the plane only to determine where the ball went into touch, not if the ball went into touch

    This would also have the benefit making things a lot easier...
  11. [Line out] Re: Frances first try against Ireland - Should we have gone back for a lineout?

    I think crossref is proposing that the plane of touch should always be irrelevant to whether or not the ball is in touch, and should only be used to determined where the LoT is, i.e. the ball should...

    [Line out] Re: Hooker with both feet in the field of play?

    Agree.

    If a running ball-carrier's foot touches the touchline, he is regarded as having stepped outside the FoP, so why would a player standing with his feet touching the touchline also not be...

    [Law] Re: All blacks third try tackled or not?

    IIRC there was only one tackle after that before the try, so no, it could have been called back. As to why it wasn't, you'd have to ask the TMO.

    Yes. The TMO checks every try scoring play, even if awarded by the referee, and he can go back to anything in the lead up that happens up to and...

    [Law] Re: All blacks third try tackled or not?

    This didn't look clear and obvious to me, and even in slow motion, I still think that while 15 Gold might have had his left hand in contact, he wasn't holding the player; his hand was always...

    [Law] Re: All blacks third try tackled or not?

    Agree.

    On slow mo, Gold 15 is losing his grip before Black 11's knee touches the ground, and then doesn't hold him.... not held, play on.

    I have seen so many tackles in the elite game over the...

    Nope, that is still foul play

    a. Intentionally infringe any law of the game.

    [In-goal] Re: Peter O'Mahony Yellow Card

    I confirm your suspicion.

    If you look at the Laws, the only place outside Law 9 that mentions the word 'yellow card' is the Definitions. Law 9 is the referee's authority to give them, so all YC...

    [In-goal] Re: Peter O'Mahony Yellow Card

    No, that would be a deliberate infringement, which is foul play

    [In-goal] Re: Peter O'Mahony Yellow Card

    Interesting!

    Can someone give me an example of a yellow card given for an offence that is NOT foul play?
  22. [Law] Re: Does half-time end if PK is kicked dead ? Exeter v Bath

    If you wanted run down the sin-bin clock, and didn't want to kick for touch, why not take a scrum. They're usually good for wasting a few minutes!

    I have another similar one that happened in a local Club Rugby game last weekend.

    Full time is up on the clock, as Red are awarded a PK. They want to play-on try to get a losing bonus point. Red...
