The changing room was large and clean. Nice shower and a drink and a chocolate bar waiting for the referee. 10/10
There was a fantastic buffet laid on for the occasion, so the after match meal scores 10/10 as well.
Hi ref .Can you clarify new off side line at a tackle.The law says once a player is over the ball , off side lines are created. Also the world rugby picture ( in their app ) Regarding tackle Shows a picture regarding off side lines with the 1st arriving player , actually stepping over the ball ..Hi Jacky
Can you clarify what over the ball means .Does the 1st arriving player , need to actually step over the ball ..
What if he simply leans over the ball. But doesnt step over the ball
Also , if a jackler with hands on the ball , but feet still behind ball .Does this. Create an off side line ..
Thanks from jacky
Offside lines are created at a tackle when at least one player is on their feet and over the ball, which is on the ground. Each team’s offside line runs parallel to the goal line through the hindmost point of any player in the tackle or on their feet over the ball. If that point is on or behind the goal line, the offside line for that team is the goal line.In practise this means we initially have a tackle with a tackler and ball carrier on the floor with the ball. If a player picks up the ball after entering the tackle area from his own side, then play continues. But if an arriving player stands over the ball in a position to initiate a ruck, then offside lines are created. Don't get too hung up on the wording, when a player stands over the ball or the tackle you will know it. It will look like it always has at the start of a ruck where one player waits for contact from the opposition.
I've just bought myself some new Canterbury boots, a good reputable rugby
brand, but I am a bit dubious about the legality of the studs. If presented
with these on a Saturday I would think twice about allowing them to be used.
The tips are the requisite 10mm across but my concern is that the tips are
not rounded and therefore have an "edge".
Are these legal?
Hi, I was wondering are these studs legal for the 2018/19 rugby season
