    Re: Tactical replacement cannot kick at goal !!

    I think the ref blew up because play stopped and he assumed there had been a knock-on. However, in consultation with the AR it was decided that there was no knock-on so play should restart with a...

    Re: Scotland's first try

    Agree with this. 18.29.d re leaving the line should be clarified so it cannot be interpreted to allow what amounts to double banking - unless, as you say, the defending team are allowed to do the...

    'Rugby greats' letter

    Several British and Irish Lions greats have called on World Rugby to allow replacements to be made only for injuries to make the sport safer and help prevent the prospect of a player losing his life...

    In my early playing days to make a mark you had to do 3 things simultaneously: make a clean catch (no adjustments then), dig your heel into the ground, and call 'Mark!' Oh and you retreated to make...

    [7's/10's] Re: Reffing

    Have fun, it can be quite tough but I've always found it enjoyable. Stiffening up in gaps between games can be as much of a problem as reffing consecutive games. Another problem is mismatches in...

    Re: Global Law Trials

    Answered my own question:
    Law 12.2 Kick-offs are taken on or behind the centre of the half-way line. Sanction: The non-kicking team has the option of the kick being retaken or a scrum.

    Aren't kick-offs / restarts after score nominally taken from the half-way line? Or could the kicker take it from anywhere behind the line back to the goal line? Is the halfway line in any half of the...

    There's a technique that was (is?) used in RL called the Cumberland hipe, a wrestling throw over the leg.

    We all know this, too, about scrum put-ins: Straight. The scrum-half may align their shoulder on the middle line of the scrum, thereby standing a shoulder-width closer to their side of the scrum. Ha...

    Re: France v Scotland

    Yes, if we are to enforce full bind until the ball is out for the side not winning the scrum, then surely we should require the other team to remain bound, too.

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    And when they're not kicking for goal, penalty takers appear to regard the mark they are given as an approximate point from which they can amble forward and / or increase the angle to touch before...

    Re: England v France

    I looked at the mown strips and, if they are 5m, my estimate of 8m stands. I think the fly half was closer.

    To answer my own question: I looked back through the footage and estimate that Fickou, anticipating the play, was not more than 8 metres from the line of touch as the ball was thrown.

    Does that also beg the question: How far can you tap the ball forward and recover it?
    I speak as someone who began playing in the days before the 'adjustment' was allowed.

    France's second try (am I coming across as a biased England fan?). Interesting to see Fikou's starting position at the line-out as the ball left the thrower's hand - 10 metres?

    England v France

    France's first try. Was Dupont's tap forward different from tapping the ball over a defender to regather and score?
  24. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    That's all right then. If neither side was ready should the referee have called 'Time on' and allowed play to restart. Gauzere, it's reported, now says he made a mistake.
  25. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I disagree. The clips show there were still medics / water carriers from both sides on the pitch and, although play often continues will all kinds of non-participants littering the field of play, I...
