  1. Re: Does anyone think the 20/21 season will start?

    None at all in Melbourne.

    For the first (and probably last) time the AFL Grand Final will be played in Brisbane. This is akin to Wimbledon being played at the Blundellsands Lawn Tennis Club in...

    yeah, forget pre-binding, flying wedge, etc. That way lies madness.

    This is a Law 14 offence:

    a. Remain on their feet and release the ball and the ball-carrier immediately.

    We used to see it here and refs used to call "reload" to tell...

    [Maul] Re: Isn't this obstruction?

    you use the term "shearing off" and that is the critical issue. If the line that the "new" pod moves in is the same as the "old" pod, then it is the same maul irrespective of if a new defender...

    Re: STE to hook, Wasps Bath

    I don't think so.

    First hooker goes U/S -> bring on second hooker.

    Second hooker goes U/S -> no questions, uncontested, no man off

    maybe the phrase "first time of asking" is significant. If there is a 2nd injury, the ref has no right to ask a second time.

    Re: STE to hook, Wasps Bath

    I found it interesting that Barnes said that in an uncontested scrum, only designated FR players can be in the front row. Is that a thing?

    Opinion question: I wonder if this appointment makes her the most accomplished female referee to date or does Joy Neville (or someone else) hold that crown?

    I think admin should delete that post immediately. :)

    Merely corroborative detail, intended to give artistic verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative.

    [In-goal] Re: Try: Yes or No? Or?

    it would need a TMO with some serious stones to overule an "onfield we have a try" call because he had doubts on grounding. Doubts about grounding unlikely to pass the C&O test, IMO

    but it appears to me that that isn't an option. It seems that the ref must either say "onfield we have a try" or "onfield we have no try". Then the TMO can only overule if there is C&O evidence to...
