    Defending the try line - where is offside?

    BOTH feet though right? And I would have reasoned that because the line is the target that they should be toes behind the line (if being argumentative).

    Defending the try line - where is offside?

    Hi Refs. When red is attacking the try line with <10 meters to go, let's say they're 7 meters out. Where exactly do the toes of defending blues need to be at the play of the ball? To the letter of the law my understanding was toes BEHIND the try line. Wikipedia: "A defending player is...

    where to get a NRL Whistle

    with a name like Acme Thunderer no 58.5 and an answer like "no not the 58 but the 58.5" it would be easy to imagine that this is a pisstake but nope, you boys are bang on the button again :) http://www.acmewhistles.co.uk/xcart/product.php?productid=59&cat=1&page=2

    where to get a NRL Whistle

    Hi. The whistle used in the NRL has a distinctive tone. It sounds lower and almost as though it's slowing down. Where can I get one of those? Mine sounds very Soccer-ish.

    Offside, not down town.

    What happened to being "down town"? Is that different at the play of the ball? http://youtu.be/gEY6T24aFEo

    Fending / Face palming... where's the line?? :/

    Thanks lads. Forget about the playing/tackle scenario. Let's just concentrate on the hand to face contact. With the base of the palm there's shoving someone away and then there's punching someone away. From reading this I can see we agree it's a "strike to the face". How do substantiate...

    Fending / Face palming... where's the line?? :/

    I had about 4 bloody noses last week and I know exactly why. Punches from the butt of the palm. All happening in a few seconds that make a RL tackle... let's say we have a heavy RED forward tackled low by 2 BLUE light backs. The 2 blues stop him but don't get him down. As the 3rd blue runs...

    Super stuff lads. I'll take that on board. I'm also thinking of setting it straight with him before the kick off.

    Over zealous coaches.

    If I leave then doesn't that screw everyone else over some idiot? No touch line managers or anything like that just lil ol' me. Ya see it's very hard for us here in Ireland with RL as it's a developing sport struggling to find it's feet at this point. We don't have a lot of teeth. (feels...
