    Re: France v Scotland

    I don't think it is that black and white Pinky.

    [Law] Re: Why isn't this pre binding penalised ?

    my mistake, It is in the definitions.
    Flying wedge is specific that you cannot pre bind onto a ball carrier a it is dangerous.
    I wish they would enforce it.

    Come on Didds, Irrespective of whether LP cards are right or wrong decisions, are you seriously saying you would not include repeat offences outside the red zone?

    Re: Leinster v Glasgow

    Too many players get away with this foot up jump for the ball.
    It should be penalised whether they make contact or not.
