    Declining Advantage

    I had a situation like this happen recently. Game was tied and less than 3 minutes remaining. Attacking side is given "penalty advantage" just outside the 22 at the 15 meter mark at a ruck. 6 players from the attacking side, including the captain, say we'll take it. While this is happening, the...

    Moulded football boots

    Law 4.3 (b) "Moulded rubber multi-studded soles are acceptable provided they have no sharp edges or ridges." Based on this, we have allowed moulded cleats. The worst thing I have ever seen was a high school kid who had cut the front moulded cleat from his new cleats. He said his coach told him...

    DirecTV Channel 490

    Games, goals and reviews

    Just a quick question (because I have plenty of issues with the scrum), why did you penalize the 2nd row for disintegrating when the pressure came on? And what lead you to that decision?

    focused

    Take a step back out of the refereeing role and get into a match or sit with a good group and watch a match. Whatever you decide, try to remember why you took up the whistle in the first place and what you like about the game.

    scrum positioning

    Russia v USA

    Looks like we don't have to worry about any Barkeresque comments. Clever was cleared, so now what can we attribute the loss to Aus?
