    [Law] When does a replacement for an injury (not blood/concussion) become permanent?

    Is there any rule-of-thumb for how long a player who is being treated on the sidelines for an injury not involving bleeding or an apparent concussion can stay off before his replacement becomes permanent? Or can s/he return at any time? In a match between two university sides yesterday I had a...

    [In-goal] Ball lost backwards across dead ball line

    Learned colleagues, was the decision to award a 5-metre scrum to Team A in the following instances correct? a. Team A hoofs the ball into Team B's in-goal, where a scrambling Team B player tries to catch it. The ball slips backwards through his hands, hits the ground, and rolls across his...

    2016 Laws Omit 16 Paragraphs from Law 3.5?

    Thanks, I'll check it out. The link seems to redirect to a file that automatically downloads? In any case, given the omission, it is odd that Law 3.4 (d) in the 2016 edition has not been amended accordingly, and still refers to two of the omitted paragraphs (f) and (g):

    2016 Laws Omit 16 Paragraphs from Law 3.5?

    The 2016 edition of the Laws of the Game omits 16 paragraphs (e to t) from Law 3.5 that are present in the 2015 edition (see image below). Are these omissions intentional, or a printing gremlin? They seem to be deliberate, as the same paragraphs are also omitted from the online version of...

    [Line out] When is Quick Throw-In No Longer Possible?

    Regarding #4, Green obviously thought that if they got two players to the LoT quickly, then the QTI was not on. So, yes, Green often had two players arriving early while Red was still in disarray. Red's thrower neutralized this advantage by throwing in to whichever of his players arrived...

    [Line out] When is Quick Throw-In No Longer Possible?

    Regarding #3, Red attempted about 4 QTIs during the match - no doubt encouraged by my allowing them to complete the first one. It happened during a friendly match between a regular side (Green) and a team patched together from about 3 different teams (Red). My impression was that, due to the...

    [Line out] When is Quick Throw-In No Longer Possible?

    When is a lineout deemed to have formed, so that a quick throw-in is no longer possible? And where are the offside lines at a quick throw-in? These questions bothered me in a recent match where I allowed Red to throw in quickly every time that they would have been awarded a lineout. Red did...
