    Offside ingoal

    Did anybody catch this during the Reds/Force game? Ignoring the misquoted law on the rugby onslaught web site (should be 11 ... Not 10), was this a muck up by the TMO. The ref was aware but was told to ignore offside by the TMO. Rather than scrum white, shouldn't it have been penalty white...

    Confused myself on this in a (junior - relevant?) match today Red ball carrier runs into contact with blue player .... blue grabs red around upper body and then goes for the ball with one arm but perhaps not both (relevant again?) ... brief jostle for ball Red then drops to ground with the...

    Quins v Bath - great turnover or tackler not releasing

    In the ITV highlights for this last weekend showing the Quins v Bath game at one point the commentators Nick Mullins and Ben Kay are ecstatic in how the Quins full back, Mike Brown, was playing as he tackled the Bath scrum half, Claassens, and rips the ball from before trundling up the pitch...
