    Re: How Long will He Likely be Banned for?

    I didn't say it was, and its not the only thuggery this scumbag perpetrated in his playing days (as you can see from the video)

    In one particularly nasty incident in a Waikato v Otago NPC match...

    Re: How Long will He Likely be Banned for?

    Yep, the man was a dirty b'stard... no doubt about that. But that was back in amateur days, without two dozen cameras watching from every angle. He got away with a lot of his foul deeds because it...

    Re: How Long will He Likely be Banned for?

    Looking through some of the YouTube videos about him, "Shoulder Boy" does appear to have built himself a well-earned reputation as a dirty little cheap shot artist.

    Long overdue... His dangerous tackling style has been well known for years, and he has gotten away with tackles that other players might have been carded for.

    Frankly, I think it should be either way. If injury from foul play or a head injury resulting in a failed concussion test results in the loss of any FR player, it should not matter whether that was...

    AFAIK, there is no requirement in Law for a team to have two back-up hookers.

    ...and the last thing an inexperienced hooker should be doing is packing down in the front row of a scrum that is getting handed its arse... that could also be catastrophic.

    [Law] Re: Why isn't this offisde under 10m law ?

    Personally, I have never seen any referee, at any level of the game, penalise a downfield player for offside (under the 10M law or otherwise) when the ball has been clearly touched in flight. On the...

    [Law] Re: Why isn't this offisde under 10m law ?

    How about?

    1. When a player attempts to block a kick and makes contact with the ball, that is a charge down, Offside Laws (including 10M) do not apply.

    2. When a player attempts to catch the...

    I didn't think that was technically Premiership match. Isn't this Premiership Cup the pre-season knockout competition that replaced the Anglo Welsh Cup?

    I much prefer the method where the referee makes a decision and the video has to show clear evidence the decision is wrong to overturn it. This works well in the NRL and the NFL; there is no reason...

    [Law] Re: Why isn't this offisde under 10m law ?

    Yep, I agree.

    In rugby (both codes) its not uncommon to hear referees yell "touched" to let all players know that downfield players don't have to retire and are free to play the ball.

    No, because once the ball is touched in flight, there is no longer any offside (except, of course for any of HIS team-mates between he and the opponents goal-line)
