  1. [Tackle] Re: Head contact, with force, with mitigation - not even a PK?

    No big screen, no TMO, no AR????? Welcome to the real world of rugby.
  2. [Maul] Re: Binding in front of the Ball Carrier/back foot.

    Why are they doing it, if not to gain an advantage?

    Re: Penalty Try

    "A Penalty Try IS a Penalty Try" no choice. I have a 'Get it right" clause in my contract.

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

    Another example of a clear law being 'simplified' in the last re-write.

    [Law] Re: Why isn't this pre binding penalised ?

    Tackling two oncoming players at the same time is more dangerous than tackling just one. Perhaps this is another reason to encourage lower tackles rather than just bash into each other.
  8. Re: Boot advice needed for achilles injury - new ref

    Take every comment from an Assessor, coach, player, spectator, barman etc with a pinch of salt; there MAY be something in what they say, or they may be biased, or unsighted, or not up to date on the...

    [Law] Re: Superbowl - advantage question.

    Ball is dead; Game over- UNLESS the ref blew the whistle BEFORE the ball went between the posts.

    [Kit] Re: Watches

    Tim, was there a time that you pressed the wrong button on your watch?

    Of course -that's when I started writing down the time. I have also forgotten to re-start after time off; forgotten to start...

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    I think you must be at a higher level than I was, I'm not sure they would understand that, and if they did then they would poke fun at my Southern Softie Grammar -while possibly crooking a little...

    [Kit] Re: Watches

    ALWAYS write down actual kick-off time for both halves on the score card; you WILL press the wrong button at some time in you refereeing career. (Ask me how I know).

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    If you make a mistake you can be sure a lot of the players know it. Best to say you got it wrong straight away -and apologise; either overturn the decision or re-start with a scrum. Deflect any...
  15. [Law] Re: Should the ref be able to appoint a Qualified AR?

    My PERSONAL view is that it has to be the same for both sides -two TJ or two AR. You might inevitably have more confidence in the view of a trusted colleague but probably best to treat them both the...
  16. [Law] Re: Some new laws to make the game more attractive

    One suggestion that I have made before is not to stop the game when a clearly unintentional fumble goes forwards -the delay and confusion seems enough of a punishment.

    How about bringing back...
  17. [Line out] Re: Frances first try against Ireland - Should we have gone back for a lineout?

    Easy to say now, but I did think at the time 'I'd like to see that again' -but NOT a clear and obvious mistake at game speed.

    Re: Pro Womens - Covid laws

    As I understand it, the fundamental part of the introduction of the Knock-On Law was to prevent a 'Forward Pass' by 'punching' the ball forwards to a team-mate rather than punishing a team twice for...
  19. [Law] Re: Does half-time end if PK is kicked dead ? Exeter v Bath

    I think Ian was being sarcastic; on TV SO MUCH TIME IS WASTED OVER A SIMPLE THING LIKE A SCRUM. It's almost like the players are taking a rest (this is also sarcastic).

    Can I suggest we introduce...
  20. [Law] Re: Quick taps, poor refereeing standards at top level

    "You cannot delay a quick tap" applies to the team that gave away the PK. It is a one-sided rule that should always be applied.

    "Not now, Play On".

    It is also a rule they know very well -every...

    Re: Pro Womens - Covid laws

    Poor skills is a disadvantage in itself, do we really need to stop the game for a scrum when there is already a disadvantage of delay? I would suggest again that the ref can define a fumble vs a...

    How is that? The phrase 'Never Onside' springs to mind. As I understand it if you have become inadvertently stranded offside you have to retire at least to the line that was your original offside...
