    [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.

    Not since the maul directly follows a kick in open play, surely?

    Re: Championship - no citing?

    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...

    Exactly this.

    Just seen it - looks like a red to me, by current framework.
  12. [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...

    Re: Watyagonnado

    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.

    [In-goal] Re: 6.11.A

    Taking the ball back into your own in-goal is always a risk; it's not the ball carrier's fault if the other team have great line speed and tackle them either. Running into the ref seems at least...

    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?

    I'd say not. For me, you have to have the ball (or be attempting to receive it), and be heading towards the line or in-goal. Otherwise I get into such shades of grey that I can tie myself in knots...

    A PT can follow from advantage. For all the ref knows, the SH will pass it out the other way, 12 will score under the posts and there's no grounds to give the PT.

    You can absolutely give a card for foul play even if the opposition get the advantage and no penalty is called.

    However, cards are management tools, not sticks to beat naughty players with. And...
