    [Tackle] Re: Lifting Tackle

    It happens to me about once a month ... especially after a longer period of coaching unopposed rugby. The issue is usually one of materiality (as always); if no opposition near, they'll probably get...

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

    Sorry that you interpreted it that way. It is indeed shorthand for 'within 10m all the way across the field of play', as most referees have forgotten that it could ever have been read as a 10m...

    For me, you are not reading the whole paragraph and coming to an incorrect understanding, misled by poor drafting. Para 10.4c has always been about the 10m offside Law, indeed it is only recently...

    [Law] Re: New Touch Laws!!

    If you want to be certain of getting the throw-in after a last second PK, just kick definitely into touch. Anything else risks not achieving your intent (cf mis-cueing into TiG).

    Re: Another stand-up tackle

    "Head contact includes neck and throat area". (World Rugby Head Contact Process)

    I will assume that this has not been overlooked in the officials' process and terminology.

    Re: Messy lineout - saints v gloucester

    First offence is probably White receiver joining the line-out late (making 8 when they had declared 7). Green backs move before the ball is thrown in. Green 2 is then outside the 15 before the ball...

    [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...

  13. 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

    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.
