    [Tackle] Wasps vs exeter

    My thoughts exactly. I had to find out who'd be banned, then go back and look for him, then look for an offence. But patently ridiculous. He went in high to prevent the offload, not to smash the guy. Even penalising that, to me, shows a terrible lack of empathy for the game. That is the...

    [INTERNATIONAL] How many penalties?

    Is it really Walsh? He doesn't look wide enough! I reckon you're right about Rupert Moon, though - even in a poor quality video his nose stands out!

    4.4km for 70 minute game

    Yeah, I know what you mean - plus the lack of messing about in the breakdowns increases the ball in play time.

    [Law] Knock On advantage.. and kick

    My view, FWIW, in the punt scenario is that the quality of the kick is the most important thing - a good clean kick is probably advantage over, squirting off the outside of the boot is probably not. I do think the drop goal situation is different, though, and should generally end in advantage...

    [INTERNATIONAL] How many penalties?

    Can't figure out how to get the gif outside twitter, but how many penalties do you see in the below 6 seconds? I could see four by today's laws, three by the laws at the time (about 2002 from the look of the Welsh shirts) https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/966129216105234432

    4.4km for 70 minute game

    I'm sure I heard one of the Pro12 refs say the most he'd done was about 4 miles, which initially surprised me but then how many times does a showbiz ref venture into the 15m channels? TBH, I think team tactics have a far bigger impact than skill level. I've done games in a higher league when...

    [Law] Injuries and "Injuries"

    As others have said, play on if the player is far enough away or can get off the pitch. But a word of warning: if you do have to stop play, even if you're sure they're taking the p*ss, don't force an unwilling player to leave the pitch unless there are suitably trained medics there to move them...
