  1. Re: 2 incidents - Wallabies v Springboks 18/9/21

    Keep in mind its only 20 minutes for the team... the player is still sent off for the rest of the match, and as a result, its really a forced substitution.

    IRFU?

    OK, I may have used the wrong acronym. maybe it was IRFB (what the IRB was previously called)

    As far as I can find, there is no World Rugby Clarification on this law. I have always...

  4. Re: 2 incidents - Wallabies v Springboks 18/9/21

    And much as I disagree with this particular judiciary decision, I also disagree with World Rugby's obsession with outcome driven decision making. As I pointed out to DickieE in another thread, he...

    Hmmm...

    Law 9.20(a) LE 2 weeks, MR 5 weeks, TE 10+ weeks max 52 weeks

    but

    Law 9.12 LE 12 weeks, MR 18 weeks, TE 24+ weeks Max 208 weeks

    No that I'm suggesting anything here :Zip:
  7. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Well, and no-one is more surprised than me about this, I agree with Crossref.

    This was 100% premeditated. The Blue player lined up an opponent, charged at him at full speed, literally jumped...
  8. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Intention based decision making is how it used to be, and it is still in the Laws of Rugby. You might be surprised to learn how often you are called upon to judge the intent of a player.... you make...
  9. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Yeah, Romain Poite said "C'est Rouge" almost straight away - he blew his whistle immediately, no AR/TMO consultation, showed him the RC.
  10. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Sorry Dickie, but take the tackle process out of it for a moment.

    The "tackler" actually left his feet and dived shoulder-first at the opponent. This looks like a deliberate intent to cause a...
  11. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    Yup. Straight red and a lengthy ban coming I would think

    THIS is what sending off should be used for!
  12. Re: 2 incidents - Wallabies v Springboks 18/9/21

    1st incident: Hard to tell what happened without a better angle. From Gold 10's reaction and that of the medical staffer, he had obviously suffered some sort of eye-injury.

    2nd incident: Straight...

    Re: thoughts on this one

    Tough one

    Q1. Is the kick "unsuccessful" because the kicker never actually attempted it due to the early charge?

    A2. The law does not specify.

    Q2. "Ref sends them back and tells them no...

    This works in cricket because of the nature of the gave - individual players with personal followings facing off. Kohli v Joffra, McCullum v Curran etc

    Correct assessment IMO, but of course, you need to be careful not to assume you know what the players are thinking.
