    [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...

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

    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.

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

    I was asking ‘what if’ he had been and ended up making that sort of contact during a charge down. I didn’t mean to suggest that he was trying that on this occasion. Sorry for any confusion.

    Assuming not regarded as late or high then there was nothing wrong in law other than perhaps tackling player in the air. But where do we draw the line. In my career I have been tackled numerous times...

    Re: Where are you this weekend - 2021/22?

    Not at L5. Basically the changes involve an extra league at L4 but the leagues at L3 and L4 will have less teams in them. The extra league will require extra ARs but not as many as there would be...

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

    I think the consensus here on this forum is that the video shows a RC. At lower levels without a video I can certainly see the ‘offender’ getting off or having minimal sanction.

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

    I did consider the ‘take off’ of the tackler and the intent to hurt/damage and it was this that got be going back and fore between R and Y. Players leave their feet a lot of the time when tackling...

    Can’t argue with your process and outcome. Theoretically sound. I did the same analysis and came to a similar conclusion. The whole thing was exacerbated by a very big bloke colliding with a much...

    Re: Line out maul

    No because as a referee you will immediately shout ‘use it’ or blow for a scrum for accidental offside. For a ‘latch’ situation you would be lijely to penalise after contact has been made. (Not ideal...

    Hi …..

    The guidance coming from World Rugby is that a 50:22 can be taken from a FK. Phase of play does not coming in here.

    [Law] Re: 50/22 from a FK

    Certainly for data counting a scrum only counts when the ref utters ‘set’. A free kick can happen after the ‘set’. So if it is counted for data then we have to assume it is actually a scrum for phase...

    [Law] Re: 50/22 from a FK

    The scrum and lineout were awarded. They are phases of play. Both may be considered uncompleted but that doesn’t negate the fact that they were awarded in the first place.

    I asked my question before getting clarification. A scrum is a phase of play. 50/22 available and allowed.
