    Re: PK moves

    I would certainly have to think about whether there was obstruction by Black 4 and 5.

    Re: France v Scotland

    So i f a lazy runner blocked the easy pass to a centre poised to score under the posts, forcing the 9 to go wide but still leading to a score in the corner -are we thinking PT?

    Re: France v Scotland

    I am not sure that he could award either a PT - as the ball was loose the Welsh player was going to have to score where he did.
    Similarly, I think that he can only award a penalty restart if the...

    [Law] Re: Time to take a penalty.

    The question is not why do we have the law - it makes for proper rucks that permit competition, therefore suck in forwards and make space for the backs.
    It is why did referees give up on applying it?

    Re: new Head Contact Process

    I think the process is good - but it should be in the law book. Though at least now the guidelines are on the same set of web pages and not hidden in a locked filing cabinet ....

    I also note it...

    Space for the three quarters sounds like a good thing.
    How do we manage to get back to this?

    [Law] Exeter Quins

    The incident where Townsend lifts Dombrant's legs, before he picked up the ball.
    This caused him to bobble the ball, but get the pass away and Quins dot down.
    Brought back for the knock on and a...

    Re: England v France

    I think the thing is you may juggle the ball while completing a catch.
    But once you have the ball under control you may not then throw it forward - even if you catch it again.
    Timing is therefore...
  10. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Why should he give the offending time to get ready.
    If the ref had not needed to warn the offending captain that the next offence would be a card, the non-offending team can go quickly.
    Why does...

    [Law] Re: Jumping or Diving Clarification required

    I have nothing against decision trees - but can we have them in the law book not in a secret folder in a filing cabinet marked beware of the leopard.
    As a backswood referee without team of three,...
  12. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Throw forward is judged by the movement of the hands not the ball. (Definition of throw forward)
    The hands must not move towards the opponents dead ball line.
    There is no explicit statement that...
  13. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    I note NO and WB are taking the position that favours the other nation.
    I wonder if they are subconsciously trying not to seem biassed.
    Or am I overthinking this.

    Re: 5 worst ref decision

    So we go to the TMO - what standard of evidence does (s)he apply.
    The on field ref needs to see a clear and obvious material infringement.
    This was material - but I am note sure it clear and...
  15. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    So the two top referees in the world disagree fundamentally about the meaning of the law.
    And yet still some thini the law book is fit for purpose.
  16. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Just looking at the videos, in the laws. In the first one Scotland v USA, is the knock on even in shot?
    There is a lot of time spent watching Hogg making a great run which is simply not relevant. ...
  17. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    Actually that is the definition not the law.

    If you foolishly go to law 11 looking for enlightenment you find none.
    I think we all agree that the laws need to be rewritten by someone who...
  18. Re: That ball is apparently still in the ruck.

    I agree the ball is out, but Itoje failed to clearly step back when the Welsh shove the ruck forward and the ball is still in at that point.
    The ref pinged him for always offside.
    But agree it was...

  21. Re: Wales vs Eng - Knock on and Time back on after asking captain to speak to players

    The problem is that our law framers have gone for a short law book rather than a clear law book.
    I would prefer to see notes to the laws.
    One could clarify the intention if the ball goes from hand...

    Do we ever see refs turning the ball over after calling use it?
    My perception is that we did for about a season, but since then we haven't. But I admit that is just perception and I could be wrong. ...
  23. [Law] Re: Discussion with other sports re officiating/laws

  24. [Law] Re: Reviewing the Video with the TMO and other officials.

    Because by taking time off, the ref has disadvantaged the NON-OFFENDING team who otherwise had the right to go quickly.
    The OFFENDING team do NOT get to use that time to set - only to pass the...

    Re: Caterpillar

    In almost all cases the 9 is offside while positioning the ball.
    Mind you most of the players in the ruck will be off their feet.
