    ah - yes. indeed. ball at the back =play the ball away. Thanks - mea culpa

    Re: France 2023

    thanks for the genuione advice but Im not a ref, just a recently ex-coach.

    and my club (and I suspect society if I were a ref) in England doesnt handle "away" 6N tickets
  6. [Maul] Re: When is a flying wedge a maul...a maul a flying wedge....or....?

    well thats what Im trying to get at in some ways.

    cos if thois scenario is the case no defendeing side is EVER goling to engage until the oppo.

    Hpw is a tackle below the waist eg around the knees pulling a maul down if the tackler is the sole opponenet in contact? This is the entire historical premise of a "dump" at a lineout ?

    The key point here is I thought it was...
  10. [Ruck] Re: Playing the ball while on the floor not been tackled?

    ande FWIW the ball in the OP's clip didnt "come to" the player. It was where the same player dropped it and he just grabbed it from where he was.

    By all means follow the letter of the law about...
  11. [Maul] Re: When is a flying wedge a maul...a maul a flying wedge....or....?

    But that seems eminently sensible. Are we saying that here in RFU land (amongst others) such an action is a PK to the defnders immediately purely by nobody engaguing the catcher when he lands, ball...

    [In-goal] Re: Goal line DO vs Scrum 5
