Jumping On The Try Scorer

Post by Kinoulton » Sat Jan 12, 2013 10:46 pm

Yet again the BBC News just now showed a player crossing the line and grounding the ball unopposed, and from out of camera shot some bloke came in and tried to jump on him when the try was already nailed on.

Yellow, or possibly red?

I would say red.

It is complete cowardice.

Of course you want to prevent a try, but if the try has already been scored then to jump on the back of the scorer is horrid.

Agreed. I thought it was both pointless and unpleasant.

Knee drops used to be far more common years ago before the advent of cards and largely went unpunished.

As per our game against Worcester, although the first time I've actually seen it in a Premiership game.

Agree with that. Seemed a shoddy thing to do even at the time though. A rugby watching friend has been moaning about this for years as it is totally unnecessary and even now seems to happen an awful lot more than it should.

Last time I can remember before this one (and it wasn't a premiership game) was in our 32-32 draw with Opspreys when Billy 12T made his début and Craig Newby 'starred' at centre as described here. It too was just before half-time and it too was missed!

I recall Delon Armitage's lunge with his studs showing at Crane's hands as he went over to score in the Premiership final against London Irish, I was seething! These dead leg knee drops are not very sporting!

It seems to be a case of taking advantage of the fact that whilst everyone is focused on the try, the fouled player is less likely to make an issue of it, similarly his team mates, and also the ref/linesmen. I've also noticed that in a similar way, citings are rarely made after a cup final, which I suspect is down to not wanting to spoil the positive story of the match by highlighting foul/violent play.

I think this is definitely on the increase and is creeping in at lower level. I was at an U15 game at the weekend (not involving my home town - for the detectives amongst you!) where a section of the supporters/coaches were amazed when a lad was yellow carded for just such an offence. Fortunately the ref spotted it. But sadly at this level with no official touch judges it can often go unpunished if the ref is more focussed watching the grounding etc.

It was called at the time, as per the link you posted. 12T hit the post with the resultant penalty.
Tigers struck back immediately with their second try through Twelvetrees. Tigers won possession from an up-and-under in midfield and Twelvetrees out-sprinted the Ospreys defence to score on the right. Twelvetrees, who had taken over kicking duties, added the extras to reduce the Ospreys' lead to 23-15.

Referee Alain Rolland gave Tigers a penalty to restart, deeming Phillips had infringed as Twelvetrees scored the try, but the centre struck a post with his kick from halfway.
I remember Henson was peanlised for something similar against Murphy in the 2005 Six Nations, IIRC Henson went in football style as Murphy was diving to score, but pulled out and there was no contact. Try awarded and play restarted with an Irish Penalty on halfway.
