    Re: Legality of the ankle tap

    It is legal, but it is not a tackle as the ball carrier is never held.
    However, a trip - with the leg - is illegal.

    Also if you are already off your feet, I think you are out of the game until...

    [Law] Re: Superbowl - advantage question.

    I believe in the American game the captain that did not make the choice in the first half gets to make the choice between kicking or receiving.
    So if you want to receive in the second half, which...

    In Superbowl LV Tampa Bay were attempting a field goal when Kansas City gave away a penalty. After the flag was thrown -so effectively while plying advantage - the kick was good.

    Re: Barnes - "It's in the tackle zone"

    I thought in the professional game a ruck forms when the referee calls ruck.
    As I recall Barnes had not called it a ruck so was still applying tackle laws.

    I did not think it was as harsh as the...

    The ball had been dislodged but was still within a metre of the tackle, so the tackle had not ended under 14.11.c.

    I always thought a rolling maul was when the ball was moved to the back and the ball carrier and some freinds broke off and set up a new maul hopefully with numerical advantage. The defenders have to...

    The breakdown is a mess, but how much of that is because referees let players break the law to keep the game flowing - only to create turgid play.

    I can understand that, after all highlight reels from the old days are full of the skillful kicks and ignore all the boring running and passing that wastes so much time in the modern game.
  13. [Law] Re: Some new laws to make the game more attractive

    But also we must not let the tackled player play the ball back with their hands when the ball has been lost to the other team. I spotted one with the clock on 49 minutes in the ireland - Italy game.

    My solution would be to look at changing the ball to one that is less aerodynamic.
    Not necessarily the old wet leather - perhaps a lighter ball would be less stable.

    In the same match Ireland had a penalty advantage when they were held up over the gain line.
    Could the Ireland captain have asked to take the 5m scrum instead of going back?
