    Reds V Rebels

    the contentious one for me was the spear tackle a few minutes later. Maybe the ref didn't want 2 RCs in one game?

    no arms tackle with shoulder making direct contact to the head, with force. Doesn't get any redder than that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjiAtGCY0Fs what does that mean?

    [Law] Knock On advantage.. and kick

    Ball pops out of Red's hands and Blue 10, no doubt expecting a try, is taken by surprise, catches or picks up ball and puts boot to it. In reality, unless its a fortuitously great kick, I'd consider him under pressure and go back for scrum.

    I'm with Menace. If he's under pressure, back for scrum.

    [Maul] Maul - Legal collapse

    but as a maul can't take place in in-goal, who is the "hindmost" player of the defending team? Quite possibly, the last player who is in FoP.

    [Maul] Maul - Legal collapse

    Hi Huw and welcome aboard. There will be some variation of opinion on this but I'll open the bidding. Point 1: Once it is a genuine maul, it will never turn into a tackle. However, there is often a pre-maul phase where the group of players are still in a dynamic situation. If this goes to...

    [Law] on your Mark's

    a bit "angel on pin head", but given I wouldn't be able to see exactly where the player caught the ball and the only thing I know for certain is he landed outside 22, I'd be disinclined to award it. Specifically to this question: The player has landed when he first touches the ground. For...
