    Re: Global Law Trials

    Bit of a mixed bag but some of these are still a mess. Why leave ambiguity with the flying wedge definition, which implies it does not exist in open field play, but then use examples from rucks?

  2. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    RC for me. I understand all the arguments about a relatively low degree of force. But the player went into a tackle high, had time to lower and chose not not, direct impact to the head, no...

    Re: Watyagonnado

    No - although in this case it was an OK position given how the ball was played, if blue had kept the ball and taken into contact the referee is on the wrong side of the tackle area, also not in a...

    Re: France Vs Wales

    If you can see the ball generally it is available to be played. I like LP interpretation here, you don’t need to wait for the SH to move the ball to the back of the caterpillar before it is...

    Re: France Vs Wales

    Good to see (hear?) - just need to take the next step and enforce the 5 seconds. Couple of times s/h kicked at 7 or 8 seconds.

    Re: MLR law trials

    The referee is the sole judge of fact. Doesn’t matter if the platters agree or not and want to argue. Make the call. It doesn’t need painted lines.

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    It’s a very simple thing for a referee to manage. Warn the kicker they have 60 seconds, tell them at 30 and 15. You’re unlikely to penalise them first time they go over the time limit, but if you...

    [Law] Re: Dupont try FR v EN 2021 6 Nats

    I’m really lost with this one. It’s not legal to deliberately tap or knock the ball ahead to catch it, however you are allowed to juggle for possession. Given he probably couldn’t have gained...
  10. [6N] Re: Italy v Wales massive refereeing controversy

    It was clear communication, but for the second yellow it seemed like he was talking a lot to avoid giving a red. Give your opinion enough times in a clear way, no one will challenge you and you don’t...

    I’d like to take this in another direction. Last 2 minutes, England receive a penalty for France holding on. After a couple of replays the referee changes the penalty to France for England off...

    the trolling is pure misogyny. A scourge of society and a disgrace to any who fail to condemn it. Iím disgusted by it in the same way Iím disgusted by some of the comments on the forum about it.

  19. Re: That ball is apparently still in the ruck.

    The offside was not against 8, it was against 4 who was offside before the ball emerged from the ruck.

    I think in this case it’s clear the ball is out. The offside was not given for advancing...

    Re: Leinster v Glasgow

    The player has jumped and deliberately lifted his leg high, presumably to prevent other players getting close. By doing this he has then struck a player in the head. In what way is this not a RC?
  22. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I disagree, it’s not the final direction that’s important but the initial knock forward. Any direction after that has no relevance.

    interesting point. Maybe penalties are changed then to be either a kick at goal or a 10m advancement.

    I keep telling people at work there’d be a lot less arguments and things would be much easier if they just accept I’m right.
