  1. [Law] Re: When and why the intentional knock-on rule was added to the rugby laws?

    You might say that - I couldn't POSSIBLY comment.

    ;-)

    OK I will. Over jealous and unempathetic refereeing. A total lack of understanding of what had just happened, and why the interpretations...
  2. [Law] Re: When and why the intentional knock-on rule was added to the rugby laws?

    no doubt because of the elite end harsh interptations seen on TV, I once witnessed a winger carded for a deliberate knock on 15m out from the opponents line in an attempt at a interception and...

    [Law] Re: France v England - 30/4/2021

    It must be said that the coverage of these women's games while hugely welcomed has had a lot of waffling going on. I also appreciate there may well be an element of introducing a new...

    [Law] Re: France v England - 30/4/2021

    and I think she was very lucky to not get a RC I agree.

    is there a case to be made (quasi devil's advocate) that Cleal (white) holding onto the leg destabilised the blue player who fell and was...

  6. [Law] Re: When and why the intentional knock-on rule was added to the rugby laws?

    And its how it is universally interpreted and applied - nobody can be in any real doubt.

    [Law] Re: England v France - 24/4/2921

    I watched it again to "make sure".

    if the #8 did it is certainly not at all clear and obvious, and i'd be very confident in saying she didnt. If anything she is still, at the whistle, trying to...

    [Law] Re: England v France - 24/4/2921

    Pretty much my take on both scenarios.

    I think that #9 in scenario 2 knew exactly what she was doing. She is seemigly a bit antsy after her subsequent chip ahead went stright into touch and...

    I appreciate Balones is trying to find a reason for a YC.

    Re: Covid Law Variations for England

    Yeah.

    But Bert the secocnd row doesn't think "oh, what law is that under?" when he is considering latching or not. Or watching his opposite number doing it.

    Re: Covid Law Variations for England

    its the PS that is what I was getting at.
