Re: Offside at a kick off

As Loretta say, no law change is required, just actually following it. In the definitions section at the from “forward“ is defined as “ Forward: Towards the opposition’s dead-ball line.” So a pass forward is one that goes towards the opposition dead-ball line. Nothing regarding the hands. I do like ...

Re: England Training Squad announced

Achilles tendinitis can take 6 months plus if you exacerbate it by not allowing full recovery. Not much can be done other than eccentric stretching and potentially shockwave therapy which has a poor evidence base in this condition. I speak from experience and I was just being a touch judge running t...

Re: Semi Final thread

I thought that one of the problems Bath had was that they did not play with sufficient pace so Exeter could get back into a good defensive set. I think Spencer did his England chances some harm today.

Re: Toulon v Tigers - Challenge Cup Semi

Can’t believe people are still clinging to the officiating excuses! Time to wake up and smell the coffee for Gods sake! We didn't deserve to win that game, but neither did Toulon and if the game had been officiated fairly its entirely possible that they didn't deserve to win a little bit more than ...

Re: Freddie Steward

The salarysins first half penalties from their own half were a big part of them winning yesterday. If we have a player that can keep the scoreboard ticking over or keep opposition honest, providing clean ball at the breakdown it will help the team development and performance no end. :smt001 :smt001

Re: Gloucester vs. Tigers - Sun 30 Aug 20 (1630)

I think the question is are the B team players getting an opportunity to show what they can do when they do not have strength around them. Playing on the back foot is a skill but not one we hope to need for the next 5 years. More of a mix in each group may have allowed a fairer assessment. On thing ...

Re: Team for Exeter

We kept stuck in but when we had the call the only attack was Ford kicking over and everyone charging after it. No shape or running lines. Early days for attach coach but much needed.

Re: Cockers

Until we get to the point where Sapajo’s statement is factually wrong because we get a system that is working better these facts speak for themselves. Cockers worse place is better than we have been in since. Most of us do not know what goes on day to day in the club and only judge from the scores i...

Re: Captaincy

Taufua seems to be a leader and is an unknown quantity to the refs. If he can keep a polite tone I think he could be a good interim captain if TY is away. If it goes well then he could keep the match day role. Someone from the back row if often near the action and communicating with the ref regardin...

Worth comparing to Coby’s Reinach here: https://mobile.twitter.com/btsportrugby/status/1220824730980245516?lang=en More obviously a pull back and down over the shoulder, but not dangerous either. Looking at White his tackle actually starts below and Kibirigie falls below his hands so his hand does n...

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

From laws perspective the line of the shoulder is a line along the top of the shoulder so a hand on the shoulder is over that line and high on this context. The similar tackle a couple of weeks ago was high by this law too but the ref clearly decided that it was not dangerous in both cases. it may b...

Re: Bath vs. Tigers - Sat 25 Jan 15:00

No autumn international and 6N in a mid-season break where there is a development competition with strict criteria based on who played on the early season first team games? I know the RFU make loads of money out of the autumn internationals but the money is not going into Twickenham and not to grass...

Re: European Weekend

Exeter blocking and slightly holding in to defenders, rather than knocking them over, like Tigers did, was one of the differences which won them the game at Welford Road. It is good to see it being penalised as cheating, which this gamesmanship is. I would have any contact with defenders in front of...
