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.
Where does it say this in the laws? It clearly says above the shoulder, not on the shoulder. I wouldn't say on is above

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

I don’t think the term ‘seat belt tackle’ is in the law. The term though refers to when the arm goes over the shoulder in front of the neck, like a seatbelt. Grabbing the shoulder is fine. Are you Lol in disguise? Point taken, so change ‘seatbelt’ to ‘high’ ie contact on or above the shoulder, whic...

Re: Tigers vs Wasps - 15th Feb

Ben Whites try saving tackle WAS by law a seatbelt tackle therefore we were lucky not to concede a penalty try. White grabbed on top of the shoulder when Kibirige was still in possession, I don’t think the term ‘seat belt tackle’ is in the law. The term though refers to when the arm goes over the s...

Re: SA to join a 7 nations set up

If we have SA then we must have Argentina and what about Tonga and Samoa, it will improve domestic rugby not one jot but it may improve the cash flow and hasten centrally contracted players. They will have no time for club rugby but play internationals all the time. Professionalism and cash has not...

Re: Scotland V England

But why should Currie have to play well at 8 to retain his place? He's an outstanding flanker, that's where he should be judged on.
Also there are better 12s than Farrel, and better wingers than Daly.
So why, why does Jones persist with shoehorning players out of position?

Re: Saracens are relegated!

The whole thing is a bit unsatisfactory, in my view. They are still over the cap. They are relegated irrespective of points gained. I don't think they should be allowed to play this season any more. Chalk their results off and give teams an automatic four points. That would give fairness for all the...

The partnership will work just as long as they are all in agreement with player recruitment and selection
And is there any question that they won't be? That's as pointless a statement as saying the car will be fast, as long as someone remembers the petrol

True, but given the absolute PR disaster that is Saracens, you'd think he'd be a bit more savvy

Re: Wasps v Saints

I actually think Dai has a point. Given the emphasis on player safety, if players are allowed to leap, at speed, into the air, injuries will happen, fair contest or not. I can't see any reason why the laws should stipulate that players should only catch the ball with feet, or foot, on the ground. On...

Re: Saracens Cap Investigation / Grounds for Appeal

To be fair, I think the only person who has suggested they might is Eddie Jones. Can they do that, though? I thought there would be rules in place to stop that.

Re: Borthwick

Would Murphy, as DoR, be on the panel interviewing Borthwick? Be interesting if that's the case.

"So, how would you return the team to winning ways?"
