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

    didn't the TMO initiate the review (because he'd seen a knock on) ? Or did PG just decide to check

    Which of of course is seldom used in TV rugby, it's gone quite out of fashion
  3. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    For the knock on , the presence of a TMO, unusually, didn't help.
    Without a TMO, without replays he would surely would have given a ko

    The replays gave him time to confuse himself

    [Law] Re: Player on ground catching the ball

    There was some ambiguity prior to the rewrite, but since 2017 the Law has been very clear : on the ground already, ball comes to you, you can't play it.

    [In-goal] Re: PK after the try - with a difference

    It's great question .

    I don't think the half is over until the conversion has been taken.

    So the foul play happened in the first half, so we restart immediately.

    If it was the second half...

    Re: Caterpillar

    the ref could declare the ruck as 'won' and from then no new player could join the ruck, no player could leave the ruck, and the winning team have [3] seconds to use it

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    It's definitely an oddity of rugby that a team awarded a PK .... kicks the ball off the field.

    When you sit and think about it, it's very strange - I can't think of any other sport with...

    [Law] touch after pk

    QQ when was the Law changed so that you could kick a PK to touch, and keep the throw in ?
    Feels like ten years ago ??

    The possibility that May was engaged in dangerous play didn't seem to even occur to them. That really surprised me,

    did you think May was dangerous -- or reckless?

    It didn't seem to me to be very dangerous .... and yet his boot did clip the Italian's head (or came very very close) so perhaps it was?

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    I think a typical dive to score is a low trajectory .. avoiding a tackle by going low
    May was different , he dived over a tackler

    Don't ask me whether it was legal or not .. am so confused now...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    But May was clearly diving, not hurdling - and yet still his boot met the tackler's head (or was millimeters from it)

    So are we really to say that one is dangerous, and the other isn't?

    Here it is .. does the boot clip the head ?
    TMO and ref don't even consider it
  24. [Scrum] Re: International and 1st class scrums, time to stop the clock?

    yes, that would be better, but I think it would be very reasonable for a referee to state that teams need to be ready for the instrction 'crouch' within 30s , and to FK if not.
