Hi,

Just wanted to pick your brain on the thread I started. It seems to have become an opinion poll rather than a place where I can get the facts. No bother on that because a forum is a discussion.

I'm 2nd season in as reffing and of course I am making mistakes but I like to think that in points of law I don't make the same mistake twice.

What is the actual law on a team that have taken the ball into the ingoal but then knock on? Should it also be a 5m scrum?

I am happy that with the scenario I mentioned I would now give a 5m scrum. But your question for me questioning myself.

I struggle a great deal with dyslexia. Wading through the law book (especially when it is.not written in plain English a lot of the time) proves to be difficult. I tend to learn by 'doing' and through chatting with other reffs better than through reading.

Thanks,
Leigh.

Hi Breako,
If you can send me an email address to use then I can send them over. The files sizes are too large for the forum to handle.
Regards

Andrew
