    [In-goal] Re: PK after the try - with a difference

    I think the penalty should be awarded in the fist half.
    I guess this is another that needs clarifying. as if there is a howling gale blowing straight down the pitch, it could have bearing on when...
  3. [Law] What can you do with the ball after the mark?

    Can't remember the player but there was an incident yesterday that just looked wrong to me.

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    The law examples in the good book show videos of players jumping to catch a kick which is what the law was for, not jumping for other reasons.
    I agree with your interpretation Dickie E but I'd like...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    Good debate.
    So are we clear, a player in possession diving or jumping for the line can be tackled in the air?
    But what if that tackle or attempt results in an injury or a player landing on their...

    [Law] Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    Thinking about the debate the Johnny May try has created I think world rugby need to look at this and clarify what constitutes a fair competition.

    If Johnny May had caught the Italian defender...
  8. [Scrum] International and 1st class scrums, time to stop the clock?

    Watching the games yesterday and most games, you can predict when scrums were going to take 2 minutes or longer.
    The referees and authorities need to get a grip of this.

    It makes such a boring...

    [Law] Re: Farrell Late Hit v Italy

    Disagree Flish about penalising the outcome. I thought the jump was dangerous, no need to consider the outcome, it was a penalty for me.
    If May had hurdled the defender and there was no contact, we...

    [Law] Re: Superbowl - advantage question.

    Will watch with interest but totally against the red card replacement.

    [Law] Re: Superbowl - advantage question.

    Interesting question. For me if the DG is scored advantage over score stands.
    I understand the American Football scenario but a different game and different rules/laws so no real comparison.

    [Maul] Re: Maul - Driving or Rolling

    From what I see in Showbiz rugby the ref calls "same maul", when ball carrier and friends break off, simply to make his/her life easy so they don't spoil it for the viewers ;-)

    When I started almost 20 years ago it was just a matter of buying a whistle and say you'll give it a go.

    Re: Bath Vs Wasps 8.1.21
