  1. [Maul] Re: When is a flying wedge a maul...a maul a flying wedge....or....?

    I'm sure that is not correct. The referee makes a play it away call only if ball is at back. And if they don't, it's a scrum, not a PK.

    Re: France 2023

    just to be clear, I'm not trying to scrounge some freebies.

    France 2023

    Hi all,

    a number of years ago (probably 7 or 8) I reached out to you guys to see if there was an opportunity to buy World Cup tickets for England 2015.

    I was very fortunate to be put in touch...

    Yes, I have a vague memory of that too. I scoured the clarifications (which aren't all that easy to scour) and didn't find anything. Anyone have good scouring abilities?

    A try is scored when an attacking player who is in touch or touch-in-goal, grounds the ball in the opponents’ in-goal provided the player is not holding the ball.

  14. [Tackle] Re: South African schoolboy rugby viral tackle video

    In the charging into the ruck incident there was even a mitigation comment made by the judiciary that the incident wasn't all that serious because the Australians didn't remonstrate at the time. WTF?

    that's bollocks and you know it.

    That was a straight up YC. If he'd landed any worse, would have been RC.

    Hi. What we are looking for is a fair contest and a part of that is ensuring that the tackled ball carrier has the opportunity to lay the ball back.

    Now, if he is hampered in doing so by the...
