  1. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    Phil, are you aware of this practice of a #8 staying bound with 1 arm while picking up the ball with the other? If so, do you call "ball's out" when it happens or penalise the #8 for hand in the...
  2. Re: Players told to respect referees as abuse soars

    Dave, I think you make a good point.

    To some degree we have addressed the issue by dressing fledgling referees in green shirts so that everyone knows that they are learners.

    But higher up the...
  3. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    Well, 19.26 says this (bold is mine) and, IMO, is solely to stop the SH winding down the clock. I don't see it as a way get the #8 to play the ball. Again, is this a common interpretation in UK?

  4. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    Gee, I've never seen or heard of such a thing. Is this common in England?

    Just so I'm clear:
    1. #8 stays bound with 1 arm and picks up ball with other
    2. scrum remains static until ref loses...
  5. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    what does the #8 do then? If he continues to trundle forward with ball under one arm and remaining bound, that is not legal.

    Or do like me when knackered ... on the D line!
  9. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    Hard to see that not being a knock on, but (assuming he's not trying to milk an offside) for me I'd tell the opposition to hold their ground and let him have another go
  10. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    But of course the issue is that your "sensible compromise" may be very different to someone else's (case in point, Jarrod's "sensible compromise" is the bird shit rule).

    And the law writers have...

  12. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    OB.., unless you are attempting humour with the shit & crap usage, describing a fellow referee's views as crap is not very nice.

    Remember too that law 19 tells us:

    The scrum ends:
    When the...

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    it strikes me as disingenuous that, when talking about 13 year olds, you can be an advocate for empathy & coaching & working with kids to help them learn the game ... but only if regulations require...
  15. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    I would have to see it. The law allows the #8 to break for the sole purpose of picking the ball up. I wouldn't allow a #8 to be bound with 1 arm while dragging the ball back with the other hand....

  17. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    that's how I do it too but it does trouble me a bit that the scrum law says something quite different
  18. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    Yeah, nah. Law 20.13 prevents that:

    Even if the penalty or free-kick is taken quickly and the kicker’s team is playing the ball, opposing players must keep retreating the necessary distance. They...
  19. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    What does "lifted it clear" mean?

    Specifically, does "clear" mean clear of the ground or clear of the scrum/ruck?

  21. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    well, law 15 tells us:

    Ending a ruck
    The ruck ends and play continues when the ball leaves the ruck or when the ball in the ruck is on or over the goal line.

    So to me that means all of the...
  22. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    well, yes, but I think the thrust of the OP relates to "played by that team's scrum-half". So if he sticks his boot in to try to dislodge the ball from a log-jam, is the scrum over as soon as he...
  23. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    Thanks Phil.



    That's a fairly cavalier use of the word "advantage"
  25. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    This is a good question.

    Doesn't law 10.7.a.iv give us the answer?:

    Other than under Law 10.4c, an offside player can be put onside when:

    An opponent of that player:
