    Re: Springboks v Lions

    They do and there is nothhing there that really contradicts that. The ARU are standing up for an Aussie Ref faced with a farcial piece of abuse. I see nothing wrong with that.

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    I've neither watched the game nor the video of the coach. However, I'm sure the lions' coaches could produce a similar video of "facts". Indeed every game would produce them. Many of those clips will...

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    That may well be possible. But the point still stands.
  6. Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    I think OB's point was the lack of a suitable angle does not mean the incident did not happen it only means it was not picked up by the cameras. So to say because it was not C&O does not mean it did...
  7. Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    Delightfully choosing to miss the point.

    Wit hout a TMO we only get one look which is why we use C&O and we miss / "ignore" some things. Having a TMO means the chance NOT to be subject to a...

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    If you are flying in neutral Refs and ARs there is no reason TMO can't be covered. A bit of forward planning and dubing up on duties over the three test had to be possible.

    Of course WG was going...
  9. Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    Yes Ian: but the point I raised is C&O as applied lower down the food chain no longer applies when incidents are subject to forensic analysis. When that happens we expect the correct answer with no...
  10. Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    Indeed that is where C&O is still totally relevant. We see one angle and make a call. I have had the fortune (miss?) to be filmed on a few occasions. One call I remember was a tip tackle (not long...
  11. Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    With the advent of camera angles to show what the ref could not see, of course this concept is dead. The whole point of cameras / tmos it to gt the call right (that is to pick up what the reff...

    THink of the formation of a scrum / foot positioning etc. It would be pretty stupid fo the average flanker to try to kick a ball in the front row. If I saw it I'd blow immediately. Pretty dangerous...

    I have not, because I've never seen it happen.

    Probably not given the time factor. But even if they could, only if they thought the simulation was worth a RC on its own. Highly unlikely I'd have thought.

    Once tackled there are three things (Pass / place / release) they can do "immediately". Until they are tackled they can do what they like (almost).

    Full laws apply unless there is a variation to vary them. Unless the U19 law prohibit croc rolls them they are legal at U19.

    Where is the suggestion that unions can "cherry pick"?
