    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    You are right. We finished the 1992 season (May to October for us ) under the old laws, and changed to the new ones in 1993.

    [Law] Re: touch after pk

    Much longer than 10 years ago. I retired from playing 15 years ago and it was a well established law then. Could it not have been in the 1993 changes?

    Re: Legality of the ankle tap

    Thanks all, but I know its legal. I'm wondering if it was ever not legal.

    Legality of the ankle tap

    Was there ever a time that the ankle tap was considered illegal? If so when did the change occur either in law or in practice to allow it? The question came up in our Facebook group.

    [In-goal] Re: Danny Care Try

    Can a tackle occur in-goal? According to the definitions tackles occur in the field of play. If there is no tackle, there is no need to release.

    I would be willing to bet he meant to say "Nous sommes d'accord" ("We are in agreement") and it came out incorrectly.

    [Maul] Re: Rolling maul question

    The point of a maul is fix defenders in one place, and play the ball somewhere else, be it around the fringe of the maul or in open field. Why would we want to change that?

    Very true. And the opportunity to turn the volume up to 11 might be hard to turn down.

    Very good advice indeed. But given that I am utterly without musical talent, I don't think I have to fear being invited to sit in that particular hot seat.

    Wearing something like that on a plastic pitch in the middle of a Montreal heat wave would be awful. I would either vomit into the mask and die, swallow the whistle and die, or do both and die.

    Re: Pro Womens - Covid laws

    As soon as someone with covid gets in that first scrum, it won't matter how long it is or how few you have afterwards. Likewise with any other contact situation.

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

    Given that the binders almost always go straight off their feet, I think you would have a much stronger case in law if you pinged that rather than pre-binding.

    Re: Super Rugby AU: Force v Waratahs

    By the letter of the law you are right, but he would have made it with time to spare. He did not accelerate upfield until he was put onside.

    Re: Super Rugby AU: Force v Waratahs

    I thought the offside decision was very harsh. 9 was running more across field than upfield, and swerved a tiny bit to his left before being put onside. It was completely immaterial.
