  1. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Of course he made mistake
  2. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I really think the presence of water carriers is a red herriing .. at elite level water carriers and medixs are routinely tolerated all over the pitch

    Certainly it cannot be the case the offending...

  4. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    that is really very interesting - thanks.

    definitely have a lot less sympathy for England having watched that.

    I am now thinking that the factors contributing to the try are maybe
    - 40%...
  5. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Hope so
  6. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Out on the park this Saturday somewhere in Wales ... (or this september whenever we it is we are allowed back)

    Red 10, in the middle of the field juggles the ball and bats the ball backwards...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    a jump is where you are endeavouring to land on your feet
    a dive for a try is when you are endeavouring to land on your forearms, with the ball touching the ground before you do .

  9. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    to be specific- the thread question was the juggle-and-bat-back scenario

    interestingly the majority opinion here (forcefully expressed) was the NO view (knock on) but I suspect it is going to be...
  10. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    that's the way I understand it - throw forward is relative to the player, knock on is judged relative to the ground
  11. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    this is another principle that needs to be spelled out better in the Laws
  12. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Well, I would say you don't judge knock on wrt to the player's motion. knock-on is judged with respect to the ground.

    Re: Sonja drama

    So basically that's the nub of the criticism, right ?
    Line of questions was reasonable, but once straight batted then she should have moved on more quickly.

    Fair enough.
  15. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I think control may be more important - than possession. The first bobble is loss of control, and if the first bobble was forward, need to regain control
  16. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    WB doesn't quite address the specific Wales incident does he , but I thought WB video meant it was a KO (as uncontrolled all the way down )

    Re: Sonja drama

    You haven't specially mentioned the AWJ interview before ? What did you think was particularly stupid about it ?
  18. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    what a mess.

    I would rather doubt that Nigel's content is officially vetted for Laws accuracy, by WR's official Laws dept. I just don't think WR operates that way, I would suspect NO's videos...
  19. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Well - Nigel Owens' whistle watch is actually an official WR publication, so presumably what he says is aligned to WR views

    NO explains it here -

    she was asking a question that she know her interviewees have been forbidden to answer.
    asking that sort of question can be pretty effective journalism... If journalists don't ask about referee...

    Re: Sonja drama

    which is fine, don't completely agree, but we are in the ball park now. There was nothing egregious or 'appalling' about it

  22. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I think that WR would only make ruling if they think the Law is unclear. They ae not going to get involved in whether the ball hit his finger or his knee, or went down or forwards

    Perhaps WB...

    That seems pretty reasonable summation. So not 'appalling' and not 'deserved to be sacked at all'

    Well, didn't Farrel want him to TMO it with a view to reversing ?
    Or was it just a pointless moan ?
