    this is true - it all comes back whether and when we expect a vaccine, doesn't it ?

    Agree. I do not want to see such fundamentals changed.

    which is worse: change the fundamentals or don't play any rugby?

    As soon as someone with covid gets in that first scrum, it won't matter how long it is or how few you have afterwards. Likewise with any other contact situation.

    The one doesn't lead to the other.

    Knock on? Instead of forgiving them, give the opposition a free tap.

    See? Fundamentals unchanged AND the community gets a game!

    As I understand it, the fundamental part of the introduction of the Knock-On Law was to prevent a 'Forward Pass' by 'punching' the ball forwards to a team-mate rather than punishing a team twice for a fumble.

    iv. A KNOCK ON, as distinguished from a throw on, consists in striking the ball on with the arm or hand.

    Anyway. LLP junior refereed Sale v Loughborough. He refereed it as any knock is a FK.

    We'll see what his review says about how he interpreted the rewrite. So will you (some of you) get your wish and see play on from Knock Ons? DoRs were reasonably happy and never said anything like "we thought we were just playing on after a knock on". So who knows?

    It did throw up a few things to think about. Is time up after a knock on because you've now got to award a free kick? Ahhhhh?

    can you post up a copy of what the actual Law Variation says ? (I have only seen the press summary)

    Having watched some of all the Pro Women's games so far, all the referees have blown up for a knock-on and awarded a free kick unless they were applying advantage. There has not been any 'play on'.

    I would say that the aim to achieve 75% fewer scrums was easily achieved. I saw very few. Two/three a game.
