    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    The WvA incident is a difference of analysis of an incident. We are all entitled to analyse an incident differently from another person, especially if it is a marginal one. In relation to the...

    The point I was making was not in relation to the incident you have highlighted. I am confused.

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    Nigel says he would have blown because he thought it was a knock on, but he also supports MA’s decision because MA thought it wasn’t.

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    For every game without a TMO the correct and expected decision would have been to have blown the whistle, unless the referee was absolutely certain that the ball had gone back and a quick call of...

    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    I can’t believe that some people are moaning about a referee getting a decision right!
    MA did exactly what he is ‘expected’ to do at that level of game.

    Re: Scotland's first try

    Based on experience, extensive reading of laws and WR advice and output, (plus this forum) talking to higher level refs and watching numerous replays in slow motion, I thought it illegal on the day...

    [Tackle] Re: Game Management (?)

    If a high tackle meets the red criteria then it can be awarded straight away.
    If the same player commits two YC worthy high tackles then the second is upgraded to a Red.
    If a player only commits a...

    Re: Colours?

    L3-5 -away team
    L6 and below - home team.
    Cup matches - home
    But organising committees for various leagues and cup competitions can determine their own regulations.

    [Tackle] Re: Squeeze Ball

    CR is right. The guidance that we have been given is that the ‘squeeze’ must be more or less instant or part of the going to ground action and not a secondary one to deliver the ball and at the same...

    As far as I could see both women’s internationals at the weekend had free kicks where the ball did not leave the hands.

    Re: Scotland's first try

    Under the trial laws I cannot see how it can be anything but latching. I was surprised that in all the discussions between the officials it was not considered. They just seemed to regard it as a...

  16. [Law] Re: Ball kicked hits overhanging tree branch and falls back onto pitch

    If the local ‘rules’ are explained to both sides (and the ref though I would say he doesn’t have to accept them) before the game then go with them regardless of what anyone else says.
    No local...

    [Ruck] Re: Am I Jackaling Legally? (Confused Player)

    1. - Did the tackler clearly release to allow quick presentation of the ball? Not really enough info in video. Were you too late in going for the ball and ruck had formed?

    [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    I think it was a deliberate act to hurt an opponent via a tackle. No disguise. I also think it is something that tacklers do quite often. It just so happens that in the realm of subjectivity this one...

    I think Arabcheif is asking you to define ‘reckless and dangerous’ in such a way that we can all apply it. It’s subjective so therefore impossible.
