    i think actually she poked the cobra, the cobra ignored her - or perhaps we heard the tiniest of hisses - and then she got completely roasted on twitter who accused her of cruelty to cobras.

    The law is actually (my line breask

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    agreed - also an odd part of our game,

    So we have found ourselves in a position where we have constructed a game where very often the winning strategy is often to kick the ball off the field, or...
  5. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I hate to say it - but the Law defining a knock on does need to be rewritten.

    It's all very well decrying a 'legalistic' view of the Laws, but when TMOs are watching incidents in super slow...

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

    Gosh, is that a significant change from 2017 to 2018 that doesn't appear in my table of differences ?

    Well it is sort of covered in Law 20.1 Location of PK which gives the location of a PK for an...

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    Well , yes, as I said it's so ingrained in rugby folk that we no longer perceive how odd it is.

    Perhaps as the focus on ball-in-play time grows, we'll start to become more aware of the anomaly

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    Yes, but my point is that the game is structured oddly, so that on many circumstances the best thing for a team to do is kick the ball off the pitch

    Is there any other game where teams do that ?
  10. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    didn't the TMO initiate the review (because he'd seen a knock on) ? Or did PG just decide to check

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

    For the knock on , the presence of a TMO, unusually, didn't help.
    Without a TMO, without replays he would surely would have given a ko

    The replays gave him time to confuse himself

    [Law] Re: Player on ground catching the ball

    There was some ambiguity prior to the rewrite, but since 2017 the Law has been very clear : on the ground already, ball comes to you, you can't play it.

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

    It's great question .

    I don't think the half is over until the conversion has been taken.

    So the foul play happened in the first half, so we restart immediately.

    If it was the second half...

    the ref could declare the ruck as 'won' and from then no new player could join the ruck, no player could leave the ruck, and the winning team have [3] seconds to use it

    It's definitely an oddity of rugby that a team awarded a PK .... kicks the ball off the field.

    QQ when was the Law changed so that you could kick a PK to touch, and keep the throw in ?

    did you think May was dangerous -- or reckless?

    It didn't seem to me to be very dangerous .... and yet his boot did clip the Italian's head (or came very very close) so perhaps it was?
