    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    it strikes me as disingenuous that, when talking about 13 year olds, you can be an advocate for empathy & coaching & working with kids to help them learn the game ... but only if regulations require...
  2. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    I would have to see it. The law allows the #8 to break for the sole purpose of picking the ball up. I wouldn't allow a #8 to be bound with 1 arm while dragging the ball back with the other hand....

    Are there 2 posters with the same name on this site?
  4. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    that's how I do it too but it does trouble me a bit that the scrum law says something quite different
  5. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    Yeah, nah. Law 20.13 prevents that:

    Even if the penalty or free-kick is taken quickly and the kicker’s team is playing the ball, opposing players must keep retreating the necessary distance. They...
  6. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    What does "lifted it clear" mean?

    Specifically, does "clear" mean clear of the ground or clear of the scrum/ruck?

  8. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    well, law 15 tells us:

    Ending a ruck
    The ruck ends and play continues when the ball leaves the ruck or when the ball in the ruck is on or over the goal line.

    So to me that means all of the...
  9. [7's/10's] Re: What is the definition of the playing a ball in the scrum?

    well, yes, but I think the thrust of the OP relates to "played by that team's scrum-half". So if he sticks his boot in to try to dislodge the ball from a log-jam, is the scrum over as soon as he...
  10. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    so when does a set piece transition to open play?

    And for the sake of discussion, lets say the Green player wasn't scratching his arse, but was actively retiring so that there is no doubt he was...

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    Thanks Phil.



    That's a fairly cavalier use of the word "advantage"
  12. [Law] Re: PK knock on played by opponent within 10m of the mark...

    This is a good question.

    Doesn't law 10.7.a.iv give us the answer?:

    Other than under Law 10.4c, an offside player can be put onside when:

    An opponent of that player:

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    I did ask previously but not sure I got an answer. So here it is again. Did the RFU specifically say that incorrectly taken FKs for U14 should be play on or this 1 referee's interpretation of what...

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    I think us people are doing that. There is a fairly strong body of thought that kneeing the ball is a step too far and the U14 kicker should be brought back and empathised & coached on how to do it...

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    it was a great piece of refereeing. Maybe forwards, maybe backwards. Play on and we can go back to the TMO at next stoppage.

    I don't have any particular interest in coaches' outbursts. I find the subsequent reactions much more interesting.

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    yes and it is all down to intent. If the player intends to recommence the game by using a body part that isn't his/her foot then it is an infringement. If there is no intent (eg player bounces ball...

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    No. Law 5.7(c) specifically refers to penalty kick:

    A penalty is kicked into touch without the ball first being tapped and without the ball touching another player.

    [Law] Re: Incorrectly taken free kick

    I've never seen any "instruction" regarding PK or FK being taken correctly. But using logic for a FK situation, the kicking team could simply kick the ball into touch if they wanted the game to end.
  21. Re: So when is Rassie Erasmus gong to get sanctioned for coaching on the field?

    Unfortunately now Erasmus and his supporters can be in no doubt that he hit a bullseye
  22. Re: So when is Rassie Erasmus gong to get sanctioned for coaching on the field?

    yeah, I get that but I wonder if an international referee is better off with a bit of stoicism and let the judicial process take its course. I'm not sure this "my family and I have endured a...
