    Re: Springboks v Lions

    They weren't disputing but seeking to understand. With the exception of one captain (Hi James Tedesco, who gets a bollocking every game) most of the interactions seem OK.

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    I've seen some of the "helpful" decisions from the bunker, last week especially. You have an interesting definition of "well"!

    More seriously, the one issue with Aitch in the bunker is that the...

    Probably about the same time he admits to having a sock puppet on Twitter - ie never.

    Yeah, no.
    Over ruling happens - I hesitate to say a lot - more than zero.
    If it didn't, it would mean no need for a Citing Commissioner
  7. Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    I've seen all the angles, and for me it was orange, so I can't really fault To3.

    But someone needs to have a word with Koroibete. If he keeps RL tackling like that, there will be a real red in his...

    It's entirely possible that the absence of readily-to-hand evidence suggests that there may not actually be a problem?

    Re: Global Law Trials

    Interpretations after that were that a tacklle under the waist constituted a tackle and not a mul (by definition). Binding above the waist would create the maul (again, by definition)

    Re: Protocol awarding PT

    Clive Norling used to advocate this.
    If I had To3 (which I do here!), I'd get the AR to manage the half way line and o/side inm front of the kicker and I'd go wait where the kick is going to land...

    [Tackle] Re: Lifting Tackle

    I'd be getting adice from my Society to make sure there is consistency in approach here.
    Technically, unless the players went horizontal, the Coach is right.

    [CLUB RUGBY] Re: Uncontested scrum / numbers debarcle

    Seems reasonable. If I bin a FR player, I make the team wait until we have an actual scrum to make all their positional changes.

    [Line out] Re: Asking for Numbers

    I don't know if it is or not - there's a lot that's non standard here, including unlimited interchanges.

    I've never had that come up, to be honest. I think the smarter forwards see it as zero sum...

    [Line out] Re: Asking for Numbers

    It’s a crappy FK, and usually non-material.

    I ask for numbers as we form, and tell the non throwing team, and give them time to adjust. If they STILL get it wrong, they’re getting done for being...

    [Tackle] Re: Lifting Tackle

    At U14?
    Ugh. I'm not sure, at that age grade, there's very much you can say on the field that will undo what a coach has spent ages drumming into them.

    I think I'd penalize and card the ones that...
