    [Law] Re: Why isn't this pre binding penalised ?

    Personally I don't have an issue with the pre-binding, as long as they are behind the ball thereby allowing a tackle to be made and a fair contest.

    The issue that i have with this at the dizzy...

    I wasn't aware that France had a salary cap, which is why so many of the top cubs are in the financial mire?

  5. [Kit] Re: Are these studs legal really desperate to know!

    If the boots have the relevant kite mark then "yes".

    However, as a referee we can refuse them on the grounds of safety - if they are a little sharp. It is a debate that has raged in the game -...

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

    I'd have said "No", defender got there first - my justification being that his right arm was underneath that of the Red attacking player and appeared to have touched the ball to the ground first.

    [Line out] Re: Is double-banking back?

    I can't understand why this is not spotted more at the elite level.

    If I can spot a support player stepping into the gap and pulling the jumper into him, then so can an AR - who has moved to the...
  8. Re: Crusaders vs Blues kick to touch in the 3rd minute

    18.2 (b) seems to cover what you have described



    A player jumps, from within or outside the playing area, and catches the ball, and then lands in the playing area, regardless of whether the...

    Re: cross code "test"

    There is a history of something similar.

    Back in the 80s Bath played either Wigan or Hull KR in two matches; one played to League rules and the other to Union Laws. If memory serves the League...
  11. [Scrum] Re: Advantage applied if ball deliberately kicked out of scrum tunnel

    I'm guessing that because the act of kicking a ball out of the scrum is not only illegal (PK) but also because it is dangerous play in that a boot will be in close proximity to the head of an...

    [Law] Re: Lineout - blocking throw / throw not 5m

    First time is FK then there is the opportunity, if it happens again, to escalate to a full arm PK

  16. [Law] Re: World Rugby approves law trials to reduce coronavirus risk

    I believe that Welsh Rugby has also indicated that it won't be adopting them either.

    RFU is remaining quiet - as far as I am aware - at this stage. Probably because of the whole Premiership...
  17. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    Because then you'd have to mandate the depth of the 'In goal' area to ensure an equal opportunity of scoring from either a PK, conversion or Drop Goal. If I award a PK 18m out from the Goal line and...

    Interesting and thanks for sharing.

    Curious that passing drills were permitted, one presumes that the players wore gloves?

  24. [Law] Re: World Rugby announces law amendment relating to scoring against the post protecto

    This move is one of those "about bl@@dy time" changes. Should have been done years ago.

    It goes to "Equity" as the defenders now have a legal way of stopping a try being scored. Let's all face...
