    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    Perhaps the difference is
    .. a player who leaps into the air to gain possession of a ball
    (Cannot be tackled)
    .. a player, in possession of the ball, who leaps into the air with it
    (Can be...

    craig joubert agrees with Nigel Owens

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

    Hi Koolfork - welcome to the forum !

    Don't you whistle time on and time off?
    It's not (only) for the benefit of a timekeeper it's more for the benefit of the players and coaches (and indeed the...
  5. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    but for you it's exactly the same !

    Indeed I asked you

    and you said


    ie same thing
    indeed if they are two different things then logically you need two different whistles!
  6. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    well that's very odd, Phil, as only a couple of posts earlier you said that you DIDN'T whistle time on / to restart play. Indeed you suggested that no one did apart from me!




    so you do it...
  7. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    it's a really silly Law
    1 - in the pro game it enables the bench to force a decision to kick that should be left to the players
    2- in the amateur game are we really saying that any well...

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

    I am talking about when time is off. (eg for an injury or, indeed, for a team warning) so obviosuly then they can't quick tap until time is on again

    (for most PK time is not off, and they can...
  10. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    well --

    1 - whistle for time on (that's a short blast and touching-WATCH-signal). This informs all 30 players + physios and water carriers that time is on

    2 - wait a second or two ...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    agreed. So much is different in the community game.

    happily it works both ways : the players know that you are on your own and can't see absolutely everything and are more tolerant of...

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

    so you reckon WR would agree with NO video?
    I do think WR should clarify this. Hopefully they will.

    But no rush : if I was WR I'd wait a little bit and perhaps include it in the next general...
  14. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    yes, but bottom line : do you think PG's game management was correct? or faulty?
  15. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    WB didn't directly address the LRZ case, but my understanding is that was a knock on, as was not purposefully batted back, like Spiderman did


    So WB and NO would agree on LRZ.

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

    plot thickens, as i have heard from a reliable, well connected source, that the WB version is the correct one!

    But then that was specifically drawing on English authorities - could there be a...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    I sort of agree - but the direction that WR are going in general is the reverse - decision trees / logic diagrams (as in high tackles, collisions in the air etc) .

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

    It would never be good management to restart the game when one team is in a huddle . You would lose credibility and lose trust of the players.

    There are other ways to deal with timewasting (if...

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

    Correct refereeing is
    .. first whistle, brief peep = time on
    .. make mark and second whiste = PK

    That's the way it always used to be done. (And I still do)
    "Wait for my second whistle"

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    well, here's one authority - the take from SA Referees :
    - first they offer definitions of diving and jumping
    - then they decide that May's was a jump
    - therefore they penalise it.
    ...
  24. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    i don't think it's *ever* good refereeing to start the game when one team is in a huddle. Nothing good is going to come from that. It's NOT the way you would deal with a team being too slow or...
