    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

        very little breakdown work allowed..... totally changes the game... do we like it?
        we need more info... and understand what the refs allow.

          Watched the Crusaders Chiefs game earlier. Weather was terrible and they were knocking on a dropping balls all over the place. Ball was like a bar of soap. Entertaining but extremely scrappy.

          When Munster play like that in the depths of winter, people complain about our skill levels, but those conditions make even the Crusaders look very ordinary.

            Watched a few games so far, the new rucking laws certainly increase the speed of the game, and active competition for the ball, but put a huge onus on the ref and officials, I dread to think what a mess some of the pro14 stalwarts will make of the new interpretations.

              Australian super rugby starts this weekend.


              Super rugby changes:
              • 10 minutes of golden point extra time in event of draw
              • Teams able to replace red-carded players after 20 minutes
              • Goal-line drop out if player is held up in goal or defender knocks on instead of five-metre scrum
              • If a player kicks the ball into touch on the bounce from inside their own half to opposition 22, the kicking team gets the line out

                  This rule has gotten a fair bit of backlash on twitter, but I thought it worked pretty well today. It really punishes defences that have too many players on the front-line of their defense and in turn, creates a little bit more space for the offensive team. I think it has the potential to add another really interesting dimension to rugby.

                      Mixed views on the Aussies Rugby League Law variations. I like the 50/22 kick, has potential. The drop out from your own line instead of a scrum, no thanks.

                      The Reds flanker almost did a Conor Murray and take advantage when the ball was in the Tahs' goal area but he started in offside position. Very poor crowd compared to the New Zealand version.

                        Not a big fan of that rule either, assuming the idea is to reduce the amount of scrums and therefore speed up the game, but I don't see any real advantage for the offensive team.

                          What is the "logic" for want of a better word behind this?
