    Re: Does anyone think the 20/21 season will start?

    As I said back in May:

    Re: STE to hook, Wasps Bath

    Can we please just take a moment to appreciate the absolute clarity of this matrix, as opposed to the ambiguous and much-debated mish-mash of the "flow chart" in the community game?

    Re: Super Rugby AU: Force v Waratahs

    1. My view is that Blue 16 has looked for a penalty, and I feel vindicated in that by the way he theatrically throws himself to the ground. The white player is barely moving, and he's certainly not...

    Re: the Chiefs

    Hard to view the Waikato team as appropriation given a) they are based in the country of said Chiefs' origins, b) a substantial part of the fan base can claim some Maori heritage, c) many players...

    Re: accidentally taking a free kick

    This and other similar ploys are presumably the reason for law 21.11:
    The ball must be kicked a visible distance. If the kicker is holding it, it must clearly leave the hands. If it is on the...

    Meh. No real interest from me. I don't see the fascination of this kind of game.

    [Law] Re: BoP Laws exam

    88 for me. I agree there were a couple of poorly worded questions that I found hard to visualise happening in real life. One I got wrong because it was a "gotcha" - had a technical basis in law, but...

  13. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Quite surprised in both cases that it wasn't a penalty - easily justified as an act that is "reckless or dangerous to others" under Law 9.11. Given they both interrupted a dominant attacking move, I...
  14. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Re: Covid-19 Returning to play in Sept?

    Interesting scenarios - micro-leagues not very far from my round robin idea in post #9.

    What's TaB? And what difference does it make to the scheduling?

    Re: Covid-19 Returning to play in Sept?

    At this point, I think real leadership from the RFU would be admitting that competitive community rugby should only start in January, and planning for a round robin half-season, instead of a full...

    From Richmond, I'll play a Back Hand and take us to Leicester Square.

  25. [6N] Re: Eng v Wal: Courtney Lawes charged for making a dangerous tackle

    Lawes draws back his left arm immediately before contact. As soon as he does that, he's in trouble - it guarantees the hit will be shoulder-first, with virtually no likelihood of completing a wrap.
