    At one time, when you had to have at least one foot on the ground to claim a mark, and a mark could be taken anywhere on the ground, players never jumped to catch a ball at all. That worked just...

    Re: Quins v Worcs: Noah Heward YC

    I don't think he was going to attempt to do that, rather he was expecting the player to catch the ball and he would tackle him.

    Re: Quins v Worcs: Noah Heward YC

    Indeed. They have tried to write a procedure that covers everything and failed, which was bound to happen because in real life, it is impossible to do. There will ALWAYS be edge cases. That is why...

    Re: Quins v Worcs: Noah Heward YC

    No, it doesn't. "A line has to be drawn" is the propaganda that WR has force-fed to referees to justify their idiot policies - it is essentially saying that there is no such thing as an accident,...

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

    This is how I define the differences

    Intentional
    Means "with the intent to". The player's goal was to cause the end result or engage in that conduct. They knew what they were doing, and wanted...

  10. Re: Interesting story reference tackle height. Where will it lead?

    Indeed. It is quite rare for a player to make a dozen tackles in a game. Even in last night's All Blacks v Springboks game where over 200 tackles were made, the highest tackle count was 10...

    Complete and utter bollocks Dickie, and you know it!

    An action can be both reckless and intentional, or careless and intentional, and you can still be PK/YC/RC for an action that is reckless...

    Keeping in mind the we are talking in a thread about professional, elite level rugby, are you seeing any improvement in consistency now, because of the high contact framework? Be honest now.

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

    I wonder how referees were ever able to make a decision back when they didn't have a "High Contact framework" as a crutch to lean on?

    Well, we managed just fine without it thanks.

    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.

    Hmmm...

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

    but

    No that I'm suggesting anything here :Zip:

    Yeah, Romain Poite said "C'est Rouge" almost straight away - he blew his whistle immediately, no AR/TMO consultation, showed him the RC.
  24. [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...
  25. [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!
