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

    Correct - it used to be confusing, so they defined a forward pass (in the Definitions) such that it's when the arms move forward - i.e. relative to the player.
  2. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Exactly that: LRZ is not a slowcoach, and he wasn't plodding at the time. Straight down relative to his motion is C&O forward.

    I don't think "deserve to be sacked" (of her or Gauzere), but I'd expect both of them to reflect and review honestly on a poor performance.

    Agreed, I said "not entirely hers" meaning she shares the blame with others :)

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

    I don't think so. If in the first case the player loses possession of the ball and it goes forward, but they catch it before it hits the ground, it's not a knock on. So the final clause applies to...

    I agree with Didds. It wasn't probing, insightful journalism, it was prodding for a sensational soundbite. But she's surely guided/encouraged in that direction by her employers (or was selected for...

    I reffed a match in early 2017 where both teams and one of the coaches were convinced that the LO was for the offending side because the PK had bounced before going into touch. I thought I was going...
  13. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Point 2, per the definition: Before the original player can catch it.

    Batting it backwards, flailing out a leg to kick it forwards following a fumble, etc... doesn't count.

    In some cases there's the question of whether this is also valid for a tackle-with-offside-lines - it's a blind spot in the laws at the moment, but moving the ball away from the tackle area should...

    [Tackle] Re: two matches five reds!

    A High Reward relative to a red card would have to be a try at least. These are tackles, clearouts, fends, the basics really - and they get picked up quite commonly. High Risk, Low Reward.

    Bad: there were knock-ons and forward passes missed on both sides, and some foul play missed (a seatbelt tackle by Itoje, and the Italian clearout that blew the England flanker's knee). The first...
