    [Tackle] Re: Lifting Tackle

    I'd be getting adice from my Society to make sure there is consistency in approach here.
    Technically, unless the players went horizontal, the Coach is right.
    Safety wise, at that age bracket, you...

    [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Uncontested scrum / numbers debarcle

    Seems reasonable. If I bin a FR player, I make the team wait until we have an actual scrum to make all their positional changes.

    [Line out] Re: Asking for Numbers

    I don't know if it is or not - there's a lot that's non standard here, including unlimited interchanges.

    I've never had that come up, to be honest. I think the smarter forwards see it as zero sum...

    [Line out] Re: Asking for Numbers

    It’s a crappy FK, and usually non-material.

    I ask for numbers as we form, and tell the non throwing team, and give them time to adjust. If they STILL get it wrong, they’re getting done for being...

    Re: NZ Schoolboy Rugby

    Eh. Some people need external motivation, others find it from within.

    When I was still playing, I was very quiet pre match. I was a thoroughly nasty player (mid 80s to 1991) when you could be and...

    [Tackle] Re: Lifting Tackle

    At U14?
    Ugh. I'm not sure, at that age grade, there's very much you can say on the field that will undo what a coach has spent ages drumming into them.

    I think I'd penalize and card the ones that...

    Re: Penalty Try

    The issue we have is an incorrect statement of starting principles, which means the rest of the argument is fundamentally flawed.

    You boldly assert that a referee is trying to do all these things...

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

    Too tight a reading I think.

    My interpretation is that this tells the referee what they must do upon the objection. It doesn't specify that this is the only mechanism by which player numbers will...
