    7s restart - SA v Fiji

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1Txyuo-IjE have a look at the restart with 2:00 mins to go in the 2nd half. What's that all about? Ball bounces once on or about touchline. How can that be a lineout to Fiji? Surely its either out on the full or play on. :holysheep:

    Wales v Oz and 19.2(e)

    Law 19.2(e) has never really sat comfortably with me. Specifically, the law requires that if a player takes a QTI from "ahead of the line of touch" he loses possession even if the AR hasn't yet indicated where the LoT is. 19.2 (e) An incorrect quick throw-in occurs when: •The ball is...

    RSA v Aust - hair pulling

    Israel Folau was penalised for pulling the hair of an opponent and fair enough. Made me wonder: if we would not be happy with long fingernails for safety reasons, would not the same logic apply to long hair?

    RSA v Aust

    I thought Ben O'Keefe had a good game and will do well in years to come. One issue I had was the scrum. He allowed the front rows to engage on the 'bind' call which was, IMO, a major factor in the numerous scrum collapses. Mind you, he's not Robinson Crusoe. I see this regularly in elite...
