    Re: Wal v Aus: Coach Verbally Attacks Officials

    In his day that would have been fine, but today when 30 players then rewatch it on the big screen immediately afterwards they'll know it was the wrong decision. They might not like it but they can't...

    Re: oomph...

    This seems to be an area in which referees have (rightly) been encouraged to speed up the game. For defending sides though it seems a bit of a minefield. I saw several instances over the weekend, in...

    My understanding also from society refs on here is that the guidance that has been given is that if a side go into a maul formation having caught the ball at a lineout and the opposition dont engage...

    Re: Scotland's first try

    How can the formation possibly be classified as a "successful attempt to form a maul"? The ball was caught by Blue 5 approx a metre from the 5 metre line and no Australian player engaged the...
  10. [Maul] Re: When is a flying wedge a maul...a maul a flying wedge....or....?

    What we don’t have is what should be done if we get a stand off with the ball at the front and a refusal of either side to do anything.

    Do we just give it time and eventually go to “ The referee...
  11. [Ruck] Re: Playing the ball while on the floor not been tackled?

    In this instance I think his actions potentially denied the opposition possession and even at U14s I would probably penalise this (and explain to them why). Had there been no member of the opposition...

    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...
