Charging down a conversion

Have just rewatched the incident at the end of the Exeter game. Ridley made a big mistake in not reviewing it as prior to Simmonds making his little shuffle movement 4 Northampton players were lined up with a foot on the try line, therefore offside at the kick as the laws say the defenders must line...

Re: Sort the tackle area out, please!

" Not really, only the team that has clearly won the ball at the ruck can play it out of the ruck by picking it up , however if the ball comes clearly out of the ruck it is then available to any player to play" The ball is out once it is behind the back foot - the practice of scum halves stepping in...

Re: Sort the tackle area out, please!

"Nothing illegal about latching, the refs are asking that latching happens only after the ball is in the possession of the player at the front, this is just for safety and the prevent obstruction." What is illegal is the latched on players going to ground on top of the ball carrier when a tackle is ...

Re: Ringfencing almost upon us ?

If the stadium doesn’t fit the criteria/safety requirements etc then the team should be given the chance to arrange ground share and if they can’t then maybe they play every game away? Unfortunately due to some clubs already ground sharing I don't think it would be possible for a team to only play ...

Re: Advantage Law - Just let them score!

the easiest way to sort out the problems around rucks and advantage is to ensure a single player picks the ball up and moves with it or passes it. the current situation where 3 or more players are bound together and the front one picks the ball up is basically the modern version of the "flying wedge...

Re: Progress Under Borthwick

There seems to have been a shift in emphasis over the years as far as the tackle is concerned. When i learned to play the game the idea was to tackle a player around the legs as as soon as the tackle was made the ball had to be released, since then we have seen the so called "choke tackle" which is ...

Re: Ealing beat Saracens

Not necessarily more matches as the Premiership Cup could be dropped or games reduced. How much difference would that make when the PC is already virtually a development competition with very few first team players appearing in it? Well that depends on the team. the premiership cup needs to be made...

Re: Gallagher Premiership Round 6

Tackling a players knees is highly dangerous and potentially career ending and should be penalised with a red card When i was taught to play the game as an 11 year old some 50 years ago one of the maxims driven into us was "he can't run without legs!". Tackling a player around the knees was the nor...

Re: Time wasting

Other leagues have a countdown timer displayed on the big screen when place kicks are taking place. TMO or similar starts the timer once the tee is placed on the ground. This means that all parties including the ref, kicker and crowd can see how long is being taken. The other answer is to follow ame...

Re: Non playing staff interfering with play

Any ancillary person interfering with the game should be removed from the ground and banned for at least 4 games. the offending side should also have their captain yellow carded and a penalty awarded against them. This sort of interference is no different to having an extra player on the pitch and n...

Re: Boxing Day vs Newcastle

Why not Green as a starting lock on the pitch he performed best on? Also he may have an idea of where the ball may be going in line outs
