    Re: Global Law Trials

    It was a rather ridiculous oversight in the first place.
    Makes you wonder about their internal processes.

    They are called x-rays OB.. They were invented even before you were born I believe. Have you heard about them?:)

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    When advising/coaching refs I try to emphasise ‘appropriate communication at appropriate times’ rather than mention quantity. Each game requires different amounts depending on the nature (sometimes...

    Re: Springboks v Lions

    1 - red 7 was being played by a green player and that was why he went off feet. Would have been harsh to have penalised.
    2 - difficult one for players and ref. The red 7 and green player had rolled...

    Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    Yes he lowered himself to brace for impact. Therefore he was lowering himself and didnít really allow the tackler time to adjust.
    The only way round this is for tacklers to be coached to tackle...

    Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    Basically I can’t understand how the match officials couldn’t see that the ball carrier was going down when he was ‘hit’. It was a YC all day long for me and normally I’m in the ‘flog em and hang...

    The commentators I believe made some sort of reference to humidity causing a slippery ball. Weak excuse in my opinion. They will all have played in much worse wet and rainy conditions. Wales were the...

    I was watching Wales v Argentina but Iíve just put some paint on a wall and Iím finding it more entertaining to watch it dry!

    P.S. Is there a world record for the number of knocks-on in a match?

    Re: That's done it for me. Goodbye rugby I'm out

    It did seem that the AR influenced the decision. Thought referee was indecisive and didnít lead the conversation. The other AR didnít say anything.
    Overall during the whole of the match not a...

    Yes. Nigel Owen explained why during the match. Jaco P wasn’t clear when he was trying to reason the incident and perhaps there was some input from his very experienced AR to get him to start...

    [Law] Re: Trupping?

    I think I would regard it as tripping expect it to be penalised.

    A few years ago one of the local teams I used to visit had an ex-England international judo player playing in the centre. When an...

    Re: Upcoming law changes

    Yes that’s what I meant. I just get the feeling that it will result in more players attempting the tactic and as a result the normal 50/50 call which a ref could get away with is going to become more...

    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: 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’...

    That’s why I said my previous post.
  24. [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.
  25. [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...
