    [Kit] Re: Kinesiology Tape and Calf muscles

    It might have positive effects, but to the best of my knowledge it's not been found to have more positive effects than placebo.

    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2021/22?

    Hope you recover quickly and painlessly!

    This weekend no rugby, I'm finally travelling to see my folks for the first time in over a year.

    [In-goal] Re: Goal line DO vs Scrum 5

    It's hardly the fault of the law change that one team keeps kicking the DO straight to someone who can slot 50m drop goals. It's not much more a weakness than for the mark, if you're kicking like...

    [In-goal] Re: DBL question

    Yes. Since there's no additional term for it, I'd consider it covered by touch-in-goal and I don't think there's anything suggesting that's not the spirit of it.

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

    I honestly think that it's more consistent, and more understandable for the public. At least, barring SANZAAR's latest capers.

    [Law] Re: Preventative Refereeing

    It depends immensely on the level and expectations of the players. Low level teams need much more coaching just to get a game going, more experienced players want to hear what you can see (and what...

    Ridiculous call by SANZAAR. I've not seen a single ref from outside NZ who disagreed with the RC, it's confused what was a clear framework that refs could use to explain calls, and brought intent...

    Re: 50/22 no good

    I don't understand why poor decion making or execution reflect badly on a law. I missed the match, though, and I'm interested to see what effects the law trials have.

    [7's/10's] Re: Reffing

    smeagol makes good points - slowing the ball at all is pretty much a penalty straight off. Yellow cards are only 2 minutes off, so you see them more often, especially for anything like cynical play....

    Am wasn't carrying the ball, he was chasing it down in the loose, so continuous pressure down to the ground would seem the right criterion and the try should stand.

    To advance the counterargument - we have one (grainy) angle, there's a fair bit of blue above the white on those sleeves, perhaps the ref had a better view and it went around the point of the...

    Just seen it - looks like a red to me, by current framework.
  17. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    It certainly seems undesirable that the difference between mandated red card and play on is such a fine line of referee judgement. A headbutt, a punch, a spear tackle are all very C&O, now there's a...

    [Law] Re: Clarification 1 "021

    If it's your penalty, you can make the choice. If a YC is 9'50 in when the penalty is given, he can't come back on. If it's 10'10 he can, and play however he likes.

    If you're bringing players...

    Blow up as soon as the ball looks to be heading for the injured player - I don't want people racing in with their eyes on the ball when there are injuries/non-players in the area.

    Re: France v Scotland

    Because you don't know if a try has been prevented until the ball is lost/dead - so how can you give a penalty try?
