    What is the point of the TMO?

      Can anyone explain, please, the reasoning behind shortened lineouts in your own 22?

        no idea but found this

        In your own 22m
        • There will be fewer opposition forwards to put pressure on a clearance.
        • The opposition is likely to be disrupted. They won't expect a shortened lineout in this area of the pitch.
        • But... it's dangerous if it goes wrong. If the ball is lost in the lineout, your defence is poorly positioned to deal with an attack near to your line.

          It gives me a major headache.

            Just watched the game for the first time. I think the nadir has been reached and Munster are on the way back up. TOD was incredible when you consider he was 20 minutes back from a, potentially, career ending injury. A small word for everything that Billy Holland brings to the team, lots of unseen stuff but a leader, no doubt.

              Billy serves his purpose. Will never be a starter but he has the heart, workrate and will plough like a horse when he's called upon.
              Tommy is just a freak of a man but was great piece on Examiner I think or Independent about how he has put on the kgs on his upper body as he thought his upper body strength was lacking for a 7. It seems that we really had a blessing in disguise in 1 way that he missed the RWC. He will tear it up on the harder surfaces in Japan in 4 years no doubt.
