    Equity

    I can’t imagine any scenario around going uncontested where I have any option but to ‘allow it’ - I may have my suspicions, and I may not be happy with the grumps and finger pointing that will follow - but if they ask it gets allowed, I just need to understand the why

    Ref Comms kit

    Used the Axiwi 320 (older ones I think) twice over the weekend, two different venues, once as AR and once as Ref and worked absolutely perfectly baring a bit of static as ref, whereas the 350 (supposedly better range and wider frequency) I got to use as fourth official was frustrating, I was...

    Outcome-deciding PT with clock in the red

    Would that not need a change in definition of a PT, at most try line pick and go phases there are 2 or 3 defenders capable of getting under or pushing back the ball carrier so very difficult to state that an offside player prevents a probable try? I agree with the sentiment, but we have yellow...

    Forgot to mention, I’m working with teams from Durham (my lot), Cumbria and Northumberland societies - don’t think it’s with anyone from these forums, but possibly some federation colleagues - give me a shout if anyone’s over for the day.

    Having just got my Papa John's and BUC's play off appointments I think I'll be checking a few more expectations! - Will do so elsewhere

    Where are you this weekend - 2023/24?

    Let’s reword, I need to ignore their ‘potential’ input, I was looking over unnecessarily and breaking my flow / getting distracted in what was a busy, messy game - I should have backed myself more instead of looking for validation One AR had little to offer, the other a couple of things that...

    Where are you this weekend - 2023/24?

    This weekend I learnt; - Cup finals can be the worst games in the world to ref! - Having ARs without comms is hard - Basically ignore them - Having ARs with comms is hard - (not my shift but playing tech support as the kits kept disconnecting) But my son’s team won their Colts plate final so...

    Law reference for foul play penalties priority

    I’ve had this, two equally culpable teams so restarted with a scrum, and been told afterthought I should have ‘found a penalty’ so I don’t have to bring them all back into contact - never quite sat right with me that one, but I understand why

    Where are you this weekend - 2023/24?

    Looks like I'll be without so I'll prepare a brief on that basis, when I've been an AR we normally use open mic, but I seem to spend half the time getting the kit to reconnect, and thus end up distracted

    TBC - to be honest happy without, but if I do it’ll be a good opportunity

    Where are you this weekend - 2023/24?

    I’m not aware of anyone in Durham at L7 or below that entered (or are still in) the Papa John’s cup other than Sunderland (who had to drop out of the County Cup as it clashed) I have Gateshead (L8) vs Westoe (L7) in the Cup 2nd round this weekend

    Where are you this weekend - 2023/24?

    After last weekends; Hartlepool Rovers vs Acklam Hartlepool Colts vs Bishop Hartlepool Ladies vs Northallerton I am off to ….. Hartlepool vs Bishop L7 / DN1 - mid table and nothing in it, although the home touchline has a reputation for being ‘vocal’

    Leave our Sam alone!

    That all assumes that you know that someone is a straight male, how would you know? Same can quite often be applied to colour? We already know that we can’t judge the intent of the words - but outside of the target of the words, on a pitch there’s 30+ players all taking unpredictable amounts of...

    France v Italy - potential spoiler

    Exactly what I would do in my game, take away the time pressure, let the defenders know exactly what and where I expect them to be, and let the kicker take his kick - however I have no doubt that wouldn’t be accepted in the Elite game, and I have sympathy for Christophe, which ever way he went...
