    Re: Refs returning after lockdown

    is that even legal ? Seems ripe for a challenge by a group of 59 /60 yr old refs !

    (aside: it's a rule that seems to mean 'we're too lazy to assess our refs properly')

    Re: Refs returning after lockdown

    for me
    - not worried about the virus
    - am worried about loss of fitness, and loss of 'match sharpness' it feels a long time!

    hopefully the players will be equally unfit and rusty :-)

    Re: Fans and grass roots rugby

    I think the most important thing is when can grassroots rugby begin again (I mean full contact rugby, not touch or rugbyready)

    Up and down country clubs are on their knees and need to play again

    Re: When is advantage over

    So generally speaking
    Blue knock on
    Red gain possession and .. under no particular pressure.. red decides to kick : then advantage is over when he kicks it.

    Re: charge down

    For me it's still going to be a 5m scrum, based on the defender touched it last.

    Reasons
    1 - consistency with how we judge touch
    2 - there are scenarios where the ball wouldn't have gone dead...

    Re: charge down

    that's what I thought - seems to me they weren't sure it was touched, and if they had been sure they would have given a scrum.

    I think that was fair - in theory I guess they could have TMOd it,...

    Re: charge down

    I would give a 5m attacking scrum, ie to blue, as black was last to play the ball

    What was actually given ?

    Re: knock on in touch

    the difference is that
    - if gold is standing in touch, then the moment he touches the ball, the ball is in touch and black put it there
    - if gold leaps from the FoP and knocks the ball (which he...

    it's not just counterintuitive - I think you are wrong. From the Aus ruling, I agree with Dickie (and disagree with Ian and OB) and I think the answer when it's a kick in general play is --

    Re: knock on in touch

    so what's the correct answer to Ian's 1b above ? rahter than lineout gold, as Ian first thought, you must be saying lineout/scrumoption to black?
