    Watching this - line out which led to the Blues first try. Was the ball handed back befor the catcher hit the ground?

    Obstruction - Article in SAReferees

    Some still pictures: Start of the run - 1½-2m behind: Approaching the 22 - approaching tackler seen - 1m behind: Tackler closing - virtually level: Just before contact - marginally (and I mean only marginally) ahead:

    Eng v Uru

    Uru at the ruck consistently threatening not just the first receiver, but the pass off the base. Are Eng backs too flat, or are Uru offside. I discount the idea that Uru are just quick off the mark - on one occasion it was their #2!

    Aus v Wal

    At 31:54: is Genia (in soccer parlance) backing into the Welsh chaser?

    NZ v England

    At the point of this still, NO has just called "Ruck..." and hasn't yet said "": And this is from just before he calls "Ruck...": I was wrong; Black #13 is not yet in contact with White #9 when "Ruck..." is called". And finally, this is as far back as Black #13 gets before driving...
