Re: Scrum formation

I do not know if there is a law on the formation of the scrum, I do remember the hand of back incident was only possible because Back had moved up the scrum to help Garforth who was being illegally turned in by the Claw, being in a position to rob the ball was a happy by-product, so in that scrum we...

Re: Belgium v Spain

Having seen the highlights, the ref gave the appearance of being even more one eyed than Steve Lander, I hope it was pure incompetence not bias, the result should not stand and the IRB should investigate the appointment of the officials, at the same time sanctioning the whole Spanish squad. This epi...

Re: A nice article about Harry Ellis

A top player for Tigers, badly let down by being played when seriously injured, when rest and good treatment may have prolonged his career.

Re: Ryan Wilson gets off?

There is absolute consistency, Celtic league players innocent or lesser sentences despite the evidence, English or French players guilty with hefty sentences even if there is no evidence. Remember Cozza being banned after Julian White had been accused, when they realised it could not possibly have ...

Re: Line out cheating

Thanks for the offer but I will carry on watching Rugby, the the ref should say no and award a free kick to the opposition problem solved, it need not become a penalty fest, that is the point of a penalty, to deter offending as well as punishing the offence, that is where some people who do not und...

Re: Tackle in the air

Malouf to the letter of the law should have been carded but was saved by the partially sighted man with the whistle with his inconsistent incompetence, but that is another thread! Not at all. The player landed on one foot but was unbalanced and fell on to his back. Had he landed on his back directl...

Re: Line out cheating

My understanding is that the ball must go down the channel between the two lines. Once the lines form the mark is no longer the critical point and the ball can come in from any point between them. Being a meter apart makes it easier for the hooker to step towards his siderite give an advantage. All...

Line out cheating

Am I alone in noticing a tactic that is becoming more pronounced, namely the hooker shuffling along the touchline until he is lined up with his own payers. The ball should be thrown in at the mark where the ball went out of play, then the players form up at 90 deg to the touchline 1 mtr either side ...

Re: Tackle in the air

It is a bit of a nonsense to me, I recall Alesana Tuilagi was cited and banned for raising his knee while being tackled during the word cup as it was judged dangerous, but a player jumping full tilt with a raised forward knee is given a penalty if he contacts one of the opposition! explain that in a...

Re: Tackle in the air

Most are missing the point, why is the player jumping in the first place, they are putting themselves in danger by doing so and the law rewards them for this recklessness! Assuming the player is positioned to catch, he should get the ball if their nerve holds, we all used to applaud the bravery of t...
