    Re: Unpick this...

    Doesn't the conversation in this thread illustrate the point though? Community refs don't have access to instant replay or TMO's or even competent AR's sometimes. When something goes down on this...

    Re: Unpick this...

    I think there was more than a few players throwing punches in that sequence, but I didn't see any sucker punches or what I would describe as a "third man in"/king hit. It's hard to determine what...

    Re: SARU + Egg + Face = Joke

    I saw that game too and I agree that the Jaguars have the potential to really rattle some cages in Super Rugby this year. I'm not convinced a second franchise would be the way to go just yet from an...

    [Law] Re: Womens Rugby Rules Variations?

    While I'm not surprised to hear from you (I like to think of you as my own personal peanut gallery), I'll have you know I reffed more than a few women's games in my time. I just missed the memo...

    Re: Throwing In At "Quick Speed".

    I'm not sure why we'd want to force Hooker's to hook. It's still an open contest at that point so I'd be willing to let them fight it out as long as they like. If a team was holding the ball in the...

    Re: Throwing In At "Quick Speed".

    I think you would be within your rights to interpret it that way, but it's a bit subjective isn't it? I don't have any problem with your definition, but if the SH throws the ball into the tunnel and...

    [Law] Re: Womens Rugby Rules Variations?

    Hi Pluto! Welcome to the board.

    There are a couple of minor variations for clothing allowed, but other than that, no differences.

    Just keep in mind the usual stuff, for example some Scrum...

    Re: Where are you this weekend? 2015/2016.

    Are you serious? I think we were doing that in U11's to remind ourselves to come up as a line and not give them gaps to run through! Intimidating? Sounds like someone needs a great big cup of...

    Re: Obstruction - Article in SAReferees

    I don't think you can limit it to line, I think you have to assess position as well don't you? You could hold your line and still adjust your position relative to the potential tackler to obstruct. ...

    [Tackle] Re: Dangerous tackling

    I can see your point of view and completely understand taking a dim view of the 'back slam' tackle. I think you summed it up nicely in terms of the reasons that we'd PK vs let it go. The one from...

    [Tackle] Re: Dangerous tackling

    I wasn't having a poke at you, but some of the opinions on that page are tragically misinformed.

    The throw tackle is not so much the theme as is the poor tackle technique. Poor body height, head...

    [Tackle] Re: Dangerous tackling

    As someone reffing in the US, the first thing worth noting is that many of the players don't grow up with rugby. Many of them come from other contact sports including hockey, NFL or lacrosse. That...

    If you don't have the option of a YC, you could try speaking with the coach and inviting him to substitute the offending player. That would probably only work for dangerous play rather than cynical...

    I think Simon was referring to the non-throwing hooker or front man as a means of managing the line out (both gap and numbers) for the non-throwing team. If you get them onto it early it isn't...

    I would have hoped that you'd attempt to manage the numbers issue before it becomes a FK situation. Otherwise it's a "gotcha" which players hate. I always use my pre-match to get the front man at...

    Ball Carrier Releasing Ball

    Simple tackle in broken play where the ball carrier is brought down to a knee by the tackler. The tackler releases correctly, no problems thus far. The ball carrier is a big second rower who goes...
