    Re: Springboks v Lions

    There was an interesting event in the 2nd Test in the 55th minute.

    Green scrum which they were clearly winning. Green #9 moves away from the scrum in anticipation that Green #8 would pick & go....

    I didn't suggest there was any harm in it. It struck me as unusual & I wonder if it has happened in the past.

    I did use the word 'likely' in my post #55.

    Agree though, TMO is not infallible.

    Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    I'm not really fussed about a forensic analysis of the definition of C&O except to say this:

    the opposite of C&O is a supposition of an outcome based on circumstantial evidence. For example: not...

    Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    the concept of C & O is not restricted to the one referee/one view scenario. It applies equally to multiple camera angles - possibly even more so. If, after looking at all angles in super-slomo, you...

    Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    strikes me as a pretty flawed process.

    4 match officials say one thing and a judiciary dude overrules them and thrown them under the bus. I wonder if the ref now has right of appeal?

    Re: These goal line dropouts

    The thing that links A, B & C is that they are all non-foul play stoppages that occur in goal but not over DBL/TiG. I guess that is the logic.

    The break to that logic is a knock-on in-goal by a...

    they see 5 metre scrums as a bit of a shit-fest and a slow way of restarting game. GL drop out overcomes that.
