    [6N] Re: Eddie takes a pop at Nigel

    Not only that, but as a top ref he's given more hard-to-call games (i.e. games between evenly-matched teams) than average, where home advantage is more likely to affect the result. Ergo it is...

    [Scrum] Re: 5m Scrum Penalty and Penalty try

    As others have implied: you can't award a PT for repeated infringements and you don't need repeated infringements to award a PT.

    It seems to be one of those common misconceptions, though (a...

    [Law] Re: Penalties and keeping track of them

    TBH, that sounds like players seeing what they can get away with.

    I used to deliberately look for things to penalise at the first few breakdowns and would probably give four or five penalties at...

    [Ruck] Re: Should the ladder/caterpiller ruck be outlawed?

    It seems to me to be an unintended consequence of the TWOL - no opposition players to push the back foot back, so the can stand that much closer. I don't see much of a problem with it, though - if a...

    [In-goal] Re: No touch down after missed PK

    Don't think so - I didn't hear anyone shout and there were about 100 spectators. Blue won by 10.

    [In-goal] No touch down after missed PK

    Watching a game on Saturday afternoon, an interesting thing happened:

    Blue kick at goal and miss. White fullback catches the ball in in goal and, without minoring it, throws it forwards for the...

    [RWC] Re: Knock on inside a maul

    Nope, personally (after close ups and slow motion) I didn't think there was a knock on, but did think the ball might have been transferred to a player in front of the BC.

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    Well they certainly saw it, so no! But if he'd had the ball it would have surely been a penalty. But with his own 'contribution' to the situation, I guess they saw it as an incident. Bit of an...

    [RWC] Re: Knock on inside a maul

    FWIW, I thought NO's explanation made it pretty clear that it wasn't a knock on, specifying that it was played by the player in front and that if he'd been behind it would have been fine. Then he...

    Re: Consult the captain?

    In the 27th minute, I think a chat with the captain is always going to be necessary. There's a lot of game left to manage!

    My understanding (though admittedly I didn't always referee it this way) is that a kick under no pressure, regardless of the outcome, was considered tactical advantage as the team had the opportunity...

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    Really surprised Skeen didn't flag it up, given his penchant for sticking his oar in! But I thought Koroibete running a line ahead of the ball carrier before the pass was kind of a giveaway ;)

    [INTERNATIONAL] Guirado's disallowed try

    A not-so-commented on incident in the Wales-France game: the French hooker's disallowed try after a stupid pass from his opposite number - called back for no advantage.

    [RWC] Re: How are the RWC refs doing so far ?

    There's a fair bit of politics to go around, unfortunately! They don't like appointing a referee to the final if they've already done one of the semis and don't like appointing the same referee to...

    For my money, it's not working and is going to be slow to work for two reasons:

    1) it's a deterrent against something that nobody's trying to do in the first place (since it's been a penalty since...

    Re: RWC Wales v Fiji penalty try

    TBH I'd not noticed this in the 2018 laws.

    I'm sure in 2017 it was only cynical offences that mandated a YC - to avoid things like Canada's front row just not being able to take the pressure.

    Definite scrum 5. How the ball was made dead doesn't matter, only who put it into in goal.
