  1. Re: Thank God! At last Nigel Owens enforces (Caterpillar) Law - Use it

    I think it's a blight on the game, and is one of the reasons I prefer NRL to most of the Union currently available on TV. If a scrum half can't get a box kick away from the back of the ruck without...
  2. Re: Does anyone think the 20/21 season will start?

    Some, individually, will refuse to referee because of CoVid.
    Referee Societies have been asked to not register....it's a long story about USA R governance and restructure that's long and boring.
  3. Re: Does anyone think the 20/21 season will start?

    Here in the USA< where the situation is worse than the UK, various States are getting ready to play.

    The referees, on the other hand, are getting ready to strike.

    The written decision will be upp soonish.

    It will be interesting to see if he got anything added for the need to eradicate a particular offence from the game.

    Re: How Long will He Likely be Banned for?

    6 weeks? Assuming that he gets some kind of dis punt for remorse, pleading guilty and not eating the biscuits, you have a starting point of 9 to 10 weeks, which strikes me as a lot.

    Re: the Chiefs

    Quite how the Mayor is involved in enforcing a policy internal to the KC Chiefs is not quite clear.
    But you know that. You're just being your usual trolling self.

    Valid points.

    Re: Super Rugby AU: Force v Waratahs

    One thing that has struck me from the AU and NZ matches is the lack of preventive calling from the referees.

    One might ask how the thread itself is of use to improving referees, our mission.

    Perhaps the OP could do some self reflection as to the value this thread actually adds?

  20. [QUESTION] Re: How do I "ignore" a thread so it doesnt even show in a forum list of threads?

    Uh, no.

    When I log on, I go to "What's New", then "New Posts"
    My view then is by thread, not by post. That way I just select the threads I want to read.
  21. [QUESTION] Re: How do I "ignore" a thread so it doesnt even show in a forum list of threads?

    We have always modded with a light touch, and only close threads in rare circumstances. The Chiefs thread is not yet one of those circumstances.
