    If it had happened on halfway and after the ball went back from the leg followed by an England knock on in trying to retrieve the loose ball, what would we expect to be awarded?

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

    Cant recall if I said this already... how often do we see a #9 done for knock on when they drop the ball at the base of a ruck. It "always" gets blown as a knock on even though the distance dropped...

    Re: Sonja drama

    My take - not a million pence from 2 from the rest of you all.

    1) the internet abuse is thoroughly unacceptable
    2) the questioning was intended to elicit a controversial answer, not a better...
  7. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    I think he painted himself in the corner and then paniced and just blustered on.

    One thing is for sure once he awarded it whatever he did afterwards one side was going to be enraged.

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    We do have them. ie player pundits.

    it doesn't make their opinions any more worthwhile.

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

    The obvious question is why did her assessor praise her then tell her to not repeat it? The only reason I can think of is that nobody else did it therefore it was out of sync with expectations?

  21. [Law] Re: Discussion with other sports re officiating/laws

    So if the review takes 3 minutes the game in effect only lasts 87 minutes? That 3 minutes doesnt become time added on once 90 minutes is up?
