    Re: thoughts on this one

    Interesting comment from Bryce Lawrence in the article highlighted in post 24. "Smith's sidestep movement, though Lawrence confirmed, was clearly part of his pre-kick routine, not his 'approach',...

    Re: thoughts on this one

    In general, given the proliferaton of kicking coaches, I am surprised that any professional kicker still has a movement during their set up that could be misinterpreted as the beginning of the...

    You are absolutely correct in your logic. The problem is, of course, so were the disciplinary committee who ruled it accidental and therefore not foul play. That's the reason World Rugby need to...

    Ha ha, did he mention which side were likely to leave the line-out first? My money would be on the throwing side to ensure the maul is in place when the catcher returns to the deck but I guess he...

    I just dont think that's credible. There are many occasions on which that is just accidental. Ive kicked players in the face who have been attempting to charge down a kick Ive just made. Should that...

    [Law] Re: "Why the **** did you do that?"

    I think I'd rather avoid the inevitable conflict that would come from the oppo 9 reaching into the pack to retrieve the ball. Would rather blow and restart the game cleanly. I think you could sell...

    Re: Blocker at a Ruck

    I might not like the tactic but I think it is a legal exploitation of the laws providing the player doesnt move. I think it is much more of a liberty allowing the scrum half to walk beyond the back...

    Apologies chbg, yes the society is within the RFU.

    Re: 50/22 no good

    Ive watched a couple of pre-season friendlies at Nat 1/2 level and I reckon there were 8-10 50/22s in the two games. What struck me though was that they seemed to be predominantly used from first or...

    The move consists of the scrum half standing at the mark with the ball on the deck. On his/her signal the designated team mates run forward and the ball is passed to the chosen behemoth as, or...

    I understand from previous discussions on the subject that there is a wide range of opinion on the matter with many seeing them as no more dangerous than a pick and go from the base of a scrum. My...

    Is that something they've missed whilst drafting the law or has that been happening during the initial trials?

    Otherwise all seems logical and the clarification around latching is very welcome.
