    [In-goal] Re: Danny Care Try

    Me too !
    I have received feedback before , warning me about a grounding needs to be "immediate" and I should not allow a wrestling match.
    In this example, I would have expected the ball down ASAP....

    [Law] Re: What's your worst nightmare?

    I've marked a PK incorrectly. Actually I think I almost did it twice. It happened just after half-time and the team shirts were close in colour. I guess my brain forgets that teams have changed ends...

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    Hi Crossref,
    "he gave a PK (correct)" - That one is debatable for me. The ball travels backwards from the hand (for me and many others apprently ;-) ). This was heavily debated at the time.

    Have reffed a couple of games in Sept + Oct before lockdown 2.0. These were only "read4rugby" rules. Found the games much faster and, after the first time anyway, my calf-muscles were really painful...

    Re: Exeter Racing .. Slade

    Do we think that PK on the Exeter goal-linem for the turnover, was fair ?
    NO says "No hands" - then awards the PK to Exeter. I guess coming in from the side doesnt apply if you are in your own...

    Re: Exeter Racing .. Slade

    Exactly what I thought - admittedly from the advantage of the slightly raised camera angle. Suprised TMO didnt have a word in his shell-like.

  9. [Law] Re: Quick taps, poor refereeing standards at top level

    The captain is allowed to ask the ref to clarify a...
  10. [Law] Re: Does half-time end if PK is kicked dead ? Exeter v Bath

    Thanks Ian. I think that highlights my point. If you choose a scrum you could be pinged for a PK and allow the team a chance to attack. i.e. the award of the PK would ensure the half is not ended....
  11. [Law] Re: Does half-time end if PK is kicked dead ? Exeter v Bath

    Cheers. Yes - this is how I was interpreting it. I just wanted to make sure all other refs are consistent with this interpretation too. I had heard some were applying similar logic for a knock-on...
  12. [Law] Re: Does half-time end if PK is kicked dead ? Exeter v Bath

    Just to double check that. The law doesn't mention anything about a bounce. It just says about not being touched by another ok layer. Just wondered if others are also interpreting that word 'direcly'...
  13. [Law] Re: Does half-time end if PK is kicked dead ? Exeter v Bath

    So the conclusion is that ,as per my original post - rather than tap then kick directly to touch, it would be a good tactic to go for a kick at.goal to get the additional 60 seconds run down of the...

    End of first half in the Exeter v Bath semi-final.
    Time has expired. ( > 40 mins on click ). Exeter have a man in sin-bin with about 3:30 mins left on that sin-bin time.

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

    Thanks Crossref. That is the key to me. Some have argued that a charge down has to have actually been charged downnfor it to count under this exemption from the 10m law. Others say that a minimal...
