  1. [Maul] Re: When is a flying wedge a maul...a maul a flying wedge....or....?

    Not a maul until after the tackler binds.
  2. [Ruck] Re: Playing the ball while on the floor not been tackled?

    I understand wanting to avoid being a jobsworth and partially agree, but for me, it was a skill error which may have allowed the opponent the opportunity for a line break was prevented by a player on...
  3. [Maul] Re: When is a flying wedge a maul...a maul a flying wedge....or....?

    Still very dangerous for the first opponent to try to tackle without getting steamrolled. At what speed is a trundle dangerous?

    How would you feel about an opponent tackling below the knees of...

    Re: Leggings

    What about Jeggings? If I can't wear a set of ball crushers I don't want to ref any more

    Not sure item 1 provides any real reduction in the likelihood of a boot to the face of a chaser from a jumping catcher and probably increases the likelihood of it happening as a mid-air contest is...

    Red for the red player for mine, that looked like a definite kick rather than accidental raise and on the neck/head. The lifting tackle probably deserves a card too as there was a lifting action...

    Not quite the first kick off but I'd suggest Jordi needs some jumping training from the experts who got him off the last "accidental" foot up.

  8. Re: 2 incidents - Wallabies v Springboks 18/9/21

    Ian - I think you are wrong there. The definition of recklessness requires that a person is aware or understands that their actions carry an unjustifiable risk and they undertake it regardless. I...
  9. Re: 2 incidents - Wallabies v Springboks 18/9/21

    And we as referee's need to witness enough of the lead up to an event to understand intention with a single view and watching 10 other players/interactions/actions. Some deliberate foul play is...
  10. [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    Easy to say when you are right there, the comments that I've made are/were based on the view that I had - and I mentioned that in the response to the OP. They asked for opinion based on the footage...
  11. [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    Much of it is what we are seeing from a single long distance view and based on assumptions that the Jackler is legal in the unseen respects. Or, in the words of a famous Australian, its "It's the...

    Re: These goal line dropouts

    Then they shouldn't be volunteering. The laws and the general interpretation of them should be a hard rule, especially around foul play. If you don't want to apply the laws in the general spirit...
  13. [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    Not to be too anal retentive, but you aren't actually a tackler in this instance as you never went to ground with the tackled player.

    Re: thoughts on this one

    We've got a kicker down here who takes an initial step in the same direction each time (left hand side of their body - I'm not sure who coached that into them) and depending on where they are located...
  15. Re: 2 incidents - Wallabies v Springboks 18/9/21

    That is (in my opinion) an absolute cop out by the judiciary and a disconnect from what we would see/expect at lower levels. Could a player who received a RC for a high shot after having their hand...
  16. [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    I would have given you that one, clear release, BC/tackled player over the ball (squeeze ball position).
  17. [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    Not the easiest to see on a small screen but for me based entirely on what I could see from a long way from play:
    1. You had hands on the ground (bridged) before pulling them towards you and onto...

    Re: Line out maul

    Except you see it regularly on TV and as such, referees in the weeds get pressure to let it go in favour of a flowing match.

    AUS vs SA - Kolisi Card

    I'm surprised that this hasn't come up yet, but Kolisi's YC on the weekend had me a bit baffled as I had it as a Red after watching it at normal speed.

    I look forward to players arguing that raising a knee into a tacklers head isn't reckless if they are unbalanced at the time.

    I find it strange that people defend Barrett by saying that he was...

    Re: Hand-off heights

    I agree, I hate that a ball carrier can deliberately target an area of a tacklers body which, if the reverse occurred, would likely see the tackler sitting out for 10minutes to multiple weeks.

    Hand-off heights

    Hi All - a question regarding hand-offs and their relation to the new Head Contact Process.

    Can a BC make contact with to the head of a tackler with an open palm and bent arm before shoving that...
