really great to have some laws stuff but I really got confused now. Last situation doesn’t seem a ruck to me, cause defending player never was on his feet. Could you please explain?
Buzz Molloy Ireland
Law 16.1(b) clearly states that players must be on their feet for a ruck to be formed. Scenario 2 as outlined cannot be a ruck. Can you please clarify?
Len Ethell New Zealand
In the ideal Rugby World this would be fine but when the Laws are not applied we see Players coming in from the side , all day long, as was the case in the recent AB’s v Lions series.
Peter Telford England
Yes. Perfect age group U15s as well.
Troy Condon Australia
More of these please. Great insight.
Hamish Webb England
This is the best TRS series yet. Anyone who has coached an age group team knows that a good Ref will be a huge help to the development of players at the breakdown. The opposite of course is the same and good work through the week can be spoilt by challenging Ref decisions in the game. Too many side line experts have never Refereed a game( or played) and only see rugby on the box with assistant Refs and 13 cameras to help. Most age group refs are pleased if they get 2 Touch Judges
Aaron Callaghan New Zealand
Great idea. Really looking forward to this series.
John Walker England
As a former player, referee and coach, albeit at a lower club level I understand where Chris is coming from. Club spectators and many players love to do down refs yet nearly all have never reffed or read a law book. Rugby site should build on this expertise aimed at club level players and hopefully a more informed understanding of a refs role will develop.
