    Re: Penalty Try

    I had a situation a couple of seasons ago where the attacking winger broke clear down the right tram lines into the goal area. As he ran towards the posts he was clothes lined by a defender and lost...

    [Law] Re: Contact with the head

    I suspect the reduction in the number of scrums in RL is more covid related than anything else given how they are used in league, but I stand to be corrected.

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

    This isn't what you are looking for, but in the 44th minute of Worcester vs Bristol, a Bristol ball carrier lost the ball forwards, then knocked it back without catching it as he fell. I don't think...

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    Legality of the ankle tap

    Was there ever a time that the ankle tap was considered illegal? If so when did the change occur either in law or in practice to allow it? The question came up in our Facebook group.

    [In-goal] Re: Danny Care Try

    [Maul] Re: Rolling maul question

    The point of a maul is fix defenders in one place, and play the ball somewhere else, be it around the fringe of the maul or in open field. Why would we want to change that?
