    Re: Sonja drama

    Try reading skills.

    It was the AWJ interview that was particularly stupid. The EJ and OF interviews were just hackers, trying to get a reaction.

    Shes fair game. If Henley can get heaps for...

    Let's separate out the allegations about her trolling from just being bad at her job.

    I have never, in all my years of watching sport, heard a reporter ask a captain if he ever thought of going to...

    "Sonja, that was shit interview" - perfectly acceptable, for it was a statement of fact*

    Barnes was exemplary.


    Yup. Paddy OBrien has retired

  9. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    This is one of those situations where the process worked, to (probably) the wrong outcome.

    PG said on-filed decision was a try.
    For the TMO to nix that, he has to see something clear and obvious....
  10. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    Mmmm, not so sure. We're happy for trainers to come on while play ia active. If the restart is not proximate to them, why would delay for them?
  11. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    In a word: no.
  12. [Law] Re: Discussion with other sports re officiating/laws

    It was the players who didn't like it. Unlike rugby, they can't move the ball back through the mark. When a FK was awarded in a perfectly good area for a shot at goal direct from the free, canny...

  14. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Watching it live, my immediate reaction to the first try is that England were expecting a shot at goal, which was as large a contributory factor to the score as anything.

    The second one - if I...

    Being new to the local community, I had been introduced to the players as being new.

    Re: recruiting new referees

    Recruiting in groups- we found yunger refs who came together in a group helped them stick. One younger ref in a larger older community may find it easier to quit.

    [Maul] Re: Maul - Driving or Rolling

    I suspect the difference is the point of attack.
    AFAIU, a driving maul is heading roughly due north.
    A rolling maul moves the point of attack from side to side - which requires a little more...

    It was the Hampshire Bowl final, and the field was about 50 yds from the clubhouse.
    We were about ready to go and the referee announced he had to have a pee before kick off.

    Fair enough.

    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.
