    there are too many examples of players losing the ball forward then batting it back for that to be true.

    A lineout jumper who juggles the ball before knocking it back to his SH will never be called for a knock on.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    True I’ve never seen it called in a lineout, but always enforced when a player kicks the ball forward and sometimes when a player flaps the ball back

    During this game there were ‘controversial’ decisions made by the officials that went in favour of England and which eventually led to scores but these were not so obvious and immediate and therefore went under the radar.

It’s not the first time, and won’t be the last, that a referee (and players?) is caught out by a player not doing what they expected them to do.
    Bigger only kicked across BECAUSE England were not in position.

It was an ‘attempt’ to get it under control. - Not quite the same scenario but what would you call if at a knock forward the player was able to dive forward and knock it back into the hands of a supporting player and then they went on to score? Whether or not it touched the floor first by the scoring player.
    Overall I don’t think there is a ‘correct’ answer but rather a matter of mindset and interpretation and on this occasion it went in favour of the team in red. The majority opinion would seem to be that the ‘knock-on’ would have been called and if this had happened then it would have been accepted at that moment.
    But he did not do that. He lost the ball forward and before he could regather it hit his leg and at no time in any of this did he have control of the ball. It's as clear a knock on as you could wish to see.

    We got the breaks from two terrible calls.

    MW - tend to agree with you in general but I would word it as being a case of us getting the breaks from two calls that on another day, and perhaps on most days, may have gone the other way. The first one was a management issue and there was nothing the ref could do to rectify things in terms of ‘fairness/equity’ after he had restarted the clock. The second was a matter of interpretation of the laws which judging by the responses in various forums most (vast majority it would seem) would disagree with.

    As always with this type of argument, its flawed. The game starts in a different place depending on whether the try is awarded or not, not to mention that the mindset of the players will be different, so the game will unfold differently.

    The only times this argument can be valid are

    1. A score right on half-time where no side is blown immediately after the score is completed

    2. Missed conversions.

    In both cases, the game restarts in the same place, in the same way regardless of the awarding or not of the try, or the success of the conversion kick...


    Which brings me to something interesting I saw on the sideline watching a pre-season club game yesterday for which I will make a new thread....

    No oneis arguing with the rub of the green going different ways at different times. But here, surey, it should be about was the call right or wrong. Simply one was a wrong call and the other was poor mamnagement that allowed Bigger to "take everyone by surprise".

    1. The red player knocks the ball forward

    2. The red player never catches the ball

    3. The ball does go backwards off the Red player's leg, but then first touches the ground clearly in front of where the red player first knocked the ball with his hand.

    There is nothing in the law that states the ball going backwards off a player negates the fact that it was previously knocked forward.... "...a player hits the ball forward with the hand or arm........ and the ball touches the ground"

    For mine, the key issue is, was the place it first touched the ground "forward" of the place where it was first knocked by his hand....


    It very clearly was, so IMO, this is a clear knock-on.

    As for the first try, I am 50/50 as to whether or not it should have been allowed.

    I guess its a lesson that professional rugby players need to have learned by this stage of their careers - the game is 80 minutes long, and you can't afford to snooze for any of it, not even a second.

    Be alert! Your team needs more lerts!
    Nothing about the ball hitting the ground in the World Rugby law 11.2

    A knock-on only occurs when the ball hits the ground or an opponent after the player knocks it forward.

    In this case neither occured and the last motion of the ball from the Welsh player's hand was clearly backwards.

    Try time.

    The first one reminded me of O'Gara and a match-winning score against die Bokke, so I'll shut my Irish mouth.

    Not necessarily true!
