    Deliberate knock ons

    ...and the difference is....??? Anyone who has played centre (especially) has put themselves in a position to cut out the pass, whilst not going too far forward as to open up a huge gap inside. (At grass roots) it is instinctive to put you hand out. If it sticks - you are a hero. If it...

    [Scrum] Ball at 8's feet. His bind changes into only hands-on. What should you do ?

    If Blue asks in the original discussion, then I will give him my opinion, which I would make sure I shared with the attacking 8. It is no different from many other parts of the game - judgement. No, not happy to have him ask repeatedly. Much like, I might reply once to "is that ball out of the...

    [Scrum] Ball at 8's feet. His bind changes into only hands-on. What should you do ?

    Nothing. If white 8 unbound I would fully expect Blue 9 to go for the ball and White 8 to react (or not - if he answered my question to him incorrectly ;-)

    [Scrum] Ball at 8's feet. His bind changes into only hands-on. What should you do ?

    Blue captain : "[Sir] if, should the 8 not have a proper bind in that situation again, is the scrum over and [am I] ok to come round and tackle him? " Me :"Yes" Me : "White 8 - as soon as you move to hands only grip you are deemed to be unbound, hence the ball is out of the scrum at that time...

    Rugby Laws to become Clearer

    So the current law book was actually written by a 10.6yr old, not a 12 Yr old as we thought... :)

    [Law] Forward Passes

    Being :wales: I initially called (OK - shouted so loud that the dog jumped from his slumber) forward pass. But I looked, looked, looked again, used slo mo, super slo mo, looked again and then finally had to admit that it was flat. An excellent try. Slade's pass to Rokoduguni, IMHO, was forward.

    [TRC] Folau knock on 4 vs 1 overlap, no card or PT

    To me it looked an instinctive, immediate attempt to catch the ball (however futile that we might see with hindsight, and slo-mo replay). In the weeds, I would call the scrum. At professional level, several folks think nothing happens by accident, so I leave it to pro refs to sort that out.
