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

    what did the AR say? Oh sorry, forgot you're not allowed to have ARs :(
  4. [Law] Re: Should the ref be able to appoint a Qualified AR?

    we used to have system for juniors whereby if the team provided a qualified AR for the game, then they received an extra competition point. Worked very well. And also a good source of future refs
  5. [Law] Re: Should the ref be able to appoint a Qualified AR?

    Agree. The first was a pre-meditated "bringing the game into disrepute" offence. The second was a crime passionnel

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    the last one is interesting. The Red jumper makes contact with the ball adjacent to the 'L' in Standard Life. The next contact is by Red #16 adjacent to the 'd'. As 'd' is closer to Red goal line...

    [Tackle] Re: missed something since lockdown

    90% ball retention at the breakdown I think is a good target. Less than that, team in possession will be encouraged to kick; more than that, team not is possession less likely to commit to breakdown...

    we don't do that here. If a tackler takes the ball carrier through the horizontal then it is a minimum PK irrespective of how safely the ball carrier lands. It's about managing out poor technique,...
