    Re: Another stand-up tackle

    This appeared to be one of those situations where the tackler actually made contact with his head on the ball carrier’s shoulder. Penalise the ball carrier for not getting his shoulder out of the...

    Re: Messy lineout - saints v gloucester

    Yes you are right. Mental cock-up when writing. I meant to say that the ‘offence’ was compounded by not having anyone to exchange places with in the first place. G clearly had not agreed who was to...

    Re: Messy lineout - saints v gloucester

    Strictly speaking the first offence was probably G not having a receiver. The lineout was never really ‘set’, so difficult to adjudicate on whether there was late entry/leaving the line. (The latter...

    Re: Penalty Try

    It may not matter at grassroots but in a stadium with several thousand spectators it is a useful visual communication which explains what has happened.

    Re: Whistle recommendation for new coach

    I think the 60.5 is higher pitched and tends to be used by football (soccer) referees.

    Re: yellow card?

    At community level referee’s are more of less told that if it looks like a red card then it probably is. Or even, ‘you’ll know when it’s red card’. This is because it will (has to) come down to...

    Re: yellow card?

    By the description given by the referee it is difficult to see why it wasn’t a RC. Having viewed the incident the only mitigation I can see is that the tackler was fairly static and that the ‘force’...
  8. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    That’s why I said my previous post.
  9. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    Still very much up to the ref at the community game and here it may well be down to gut feeling about situations.
  10. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    Throughout both six nations tournaments I have got the feeling that (some?) referees are not looking hard enough at keeping players on the pitch but looking for every opportunity to get them off. Not...
  11. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    Don’t think it was I v W. I’ve just checked (at double speed) and couldn’t see any review of a head clash.

    Perhaps it needs a WR clarification to further confuse things!:)

    Can agree with that to some degree but doesn’t that mean local consistency is achieved rather than nationally?

    Not sure I’m happy with that situation although I do have some empathy with the idea. I’d want everyone to know that the player is returning and not just the player that catches my eye on the...

    That’s really the point I’m making. All I can say is that WR says it us up to the ref, and it is that that annoys the coaches.

    That’s what I said earlier in the thread about the situation observed in the 6 Nations and surmised that it was the reason behind the request for clarification from the French.

    What you outline, and suggested by others, is what I believe the procedure should be and what I have advised referees since the 2-2007 clarification. On this forum we seem to have a...

    You are right didds. I was going to tell the story about a YC four years ago which lasted 20 mins and 17 seconds. This arose because eleven minutes had gone but the referee refused to let the YC back...

    Apart from perhaps one person from the southern hemisphere it looks as if we have a considerable amount of consensus and that referees would allow a YC to return at a penalty if the non-offending...

    [Law] Re: Clarification 1 "021

    I must admit I’d be reluctant unless I knew for certain it was permissible. Very critical decision. I don’t think a ref at my usual level would allow it unless he/she was certain. As things stand...

    This is the sort of specific clarification I can support. It’s a pity it only covers a very narrow aspect of returners/replacements/subs.
    I would like it to make it clear that returners (YCs) can...

    Perhaps I should have said start of the season, mid-season and end of season? Three YCs in a season aren’t bad. :) As a coach I’d be happy with that.
