Coaches hissie-fit. Quiz time!
« on: January 13, 2019, 07:40:12 AM »
At a recent N1E match a reserve prop twisted his ankle in the warmup. Just one of those things.

However a certain opposition coach storms into the referees room squealing that his team should be awarded the points for the game before it has kicked off.

He was stamping his feet up and down claiming he had picked a team to scrummage the other team off the park and any chance of uncontested would disadvantage them. The ref brushed him off and told him to get on with the game.

As it happens the team with the injured sub went on to destroy the squealing coaches set scrum at every set piece!!

Schadenfreude!

So anyone care to guess which club the squealing coach is from??

Glad said coach is not a traffic policeman - he would be giving us all points for speeding just because our cars can go over 70 mph irrespective of if we ever speed. Glad the ref showed common sense.

Wonder what the reaction would have been if "injured" sub was needed to come onto the pitch and limped off after one scrum - that is when the debate should have started and maybe the coach was just raising this to the refs attention in case that did happen ?

This raises a point from our last home game, the ref allowed a prop back onto the field 90 seconds after sin binning him because he was the 2nd of the front row
to be binned and the opposition only had one front row replacement, scrums continued as opposed rather than unopposed. They had to take off another player ie 13 on the pitch. is this a correct interpretation of the rules anybody?

I understand it as the player sent of stays off. At the next scrum he can be replaced by another available front row replacement and the captain chooses someone else to go off. If there are no replacements left (not including the offending player) then its uncontested

The attached might help.

But no, payer leaves due to a card, he ain't allowed back on until the 10 mins is up.
Remember watching Wayne Barnes threaten nick Easter with binning prop after prop if they transgressed again.

I spoke with referee after the game and his reasoning was that as the scrum was 5 metres out from Morley line and our put in, we would have been at a disadvantage from Morley having 2 props on yellows and therefore the scrum would have been uncontested. He made a decision that 1 prop could come back on with another player going off nominated by the Morley skipper. Seemed to me a referee interpreting the laws which is what we ask them to do all the time. That yellow card was after a number of same offence penalties and so it was last one got the card, had it been for single act of foul play it wouldn’t have happened (high tackle, deliberate knock on or obstruction etc), so fair enough and he was happy to explain in the bar.
