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

    Barnes was exemplary.


    Yup. Paddy OBrien has retired

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

    This is one of those situations where the process worked, to (probably) the wrong outcome.

    PG said on-filed decision was a try.
    For the TMO to nix that, he has to see something clear and obvious....
  4. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    Mmmm, not so sure. We're happy for trainers to come on while play ia active. If the restart is not proximate to them, why would delay for them?
  5. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    In a word: no.
  6. [Law] Re: Discussion with other sports re officiating/laws

    It was the players who didn't like it. Unlike rugby, they can't move the ball back through the mark. When a FK was awarded in a perfectly good area for a shot at goal direct from the free, canny...

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    Nigel is at risk of becoming the Welsh Kaplan
  8. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Watching it live, my immediate reaction to the first try is that England were expecting a shot at goal, which was as large a contributory factor to the score as anything.

    The second one - if I...

    [Law] Re: Superbowl - advantage question.

    Being new to the local community, I had been introduced to the players as being new.

    Which they interpreted as being new t refereeing. So my first couple of matches were filled with players trying...

    Re: recruiting new referees

    Recruiting in groups- we found yunger refs who came together in a group helped them stick. One younger ref in a larger older community may find it easier to quit.

    Get wise to the social media...

    My travel right now, to all my matches, is about 7 minutes, or one Blue Oyster Cult song, or 3 Damned songs.

    [Maul] Re: Maul - Driving or Rolling

    I suspect the difference is the point of attack.
    AFAIU, a driving maul is heading roughly due north.
    A rolling maul moves the point of attack from side to side - which requires a little more...

    [Law] Re: What's your worst nightmare?

    It was the Hampshire Bowl final, and the field was about 50 yds from the clubhouse.
    We were about ready to go and the referee announced he had to have a pee before kick off.

    Fair enough.

    [Law] Re: What's your worst nightmare?

    I ran line - at very late notice, borrowed kit etc - in a National Club 1/4 final.
    Ref dropped his cards, and didn’t notice.
    He had already issued his final warning to Red.
    I ran on to collect...

    Turned up at Winchester in No1s, for those were the days that shirt, tie, blazer and pressed trousers were expected.

    plenty of time, so grab a cuppa and decide to unpack the kitbag. Run back to...

    “Skip, I let that go because there was no defender. Next time, if there is one, that’s a penalty. Are we clear on how I’m handling that?”

    [Tackle] Re: missed something since lockdown

    I penalize it if there is a defender close enough to want the ball.
    If not, I question the materiality.

    Re: Where are you this weekend 20/21?

    Yup.

    Much bemusement from player and half his team. Captain got it and one of the ARs. Second AR was confused.

    Last week was the end of the first half of the season. Now on a mid summer break until the end of January.

    I think he has been a terrifica ambassador for the game, and for refereeing.

    One of the best? Maybe. I am waiting for Ian to come and repeat his concerns about positioning - for an Elite referee,...

    As to whether that changes anything in the modern game, that is a separate question. This is a case based on historic practice,...
