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

    It was the Hampshire Bowl final, and the field was about 50 yds from the clubhouse.

    As an AR, I once lost the referee prior to kick off.

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

    I ran line - at very late notice, borrowed kit etc - in a National Club 1/4 final.
    Ref dropped his cards, and didn’t notice.
    He had already issued his final warning to Red.
    I ran on to collect...

    Turned up at Winchester in No1s, for those were the days that shirt, tie, blazer and pressed trousers were expected.

    plenty of time, so grab a cuppa and decide to unpack the kitbag. Run back to...

    “Skip, I let that go because there was no defender. Next time, if there is one, that’s a penalty. Are we clear on how I’m handling that?”

    [Tackle] Re: missed something since lockdown

    I penalize it if there is a defender close enough to want the ball.
    If not, I question the materiality.

    Re: Where are you this weekend 20/21?

    Yup.

    Much bemusement from player and half his team. Captain got it and one of the ARs. Second AR was confused.

    Re: Where are you this weekend 20/21?

    Last week was the end of the first half of the season. Now on a mid summer break until the end of January.

  11. Re: Nigel Owens - Diolch yn fawr iawn (Thank you very much)

    I think he has been a terrifica ambassador for the game, and for refereeing.

    One of the best? Maybe. I am waiting for Ian to come and repeat his concerns about positioning - for an Elite referee,...

    Well, I think they have a better than 0 chance of winning something.

    As to whether that changes anything in the modern game, that is a separate question. This is a case based on historic practice,...

    Re: Biggar Taken in Air?

    I think teams kick because of the prevalence of scoring from breakdowns and turnovers - better to let the oppo have the ball and turn them over than have it happen to you.

    Rucking should be...

    Im lucky in that NT has zero community cases, so reffing will be COVID-safe.

    No.
