    British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand (2017)

    Didn't watch the game live but watched the highlights this morning. From my view no ruck was formed by the Lions, therefore technically no offside.

    Shute Shield 2017

    Referee can only admonish participating players in the game with regards to on-field sanctions (such as penalty, Yellow, Red, etc.) if the safety of the game is affected by outside influences (such as what it sounds like has happened here), can halt the game and ask the assistance of ground...

    Sydney Subbies 2016

    I remember a year in the Shute Shield were Hamish Angus won the Best & Fairest when Warringah were in the bottom 4 - was because he consistently polled points where the stronger teams had different players polling points. Shows in a few divisions this year.

    CAS Rugby 2016

    It has never been on points difference. Always a shared premiership if points are equal. There was a year (I think 2004) during the 'one-round' years when they introduced bonus points and there was a joint title between Barker and Waverley, even though Barker were undefeated, because Waverley...

    NSW AAGPS Rugby 2016

    At first thoughts I went away thinking that the competition had gone back a couple of pegs, compared to the Scots 2014 side and Newington 2015 (I didn't see the Scots side last year). But I agree with above, except for the first 10 minutes both teams kind of cancelled each other out, with...

    CAS Rugby 2016

    Knox has 29 rugby teams (25 in 2015) and 36 soccer teams. The changes from last year at Knox have been: Opens have gone from 6 teams in 2015 to 7 in 2016. 16's have gone from 4 teams in 2015 to 5 in 2016 (had 6 at the start of the season but have cut the F's due to injury). 15's have gone...

    Shute Shield 2016

    What was the lead that Manly had which Eastwood came back from? I understand that some of the decisions were contentious, or incorrect, but I struggle to see why the 1st person blamed in some parts on this forum after this loss is the referee, after you give up a pretty good lead. I'm sure...

    Sydney Subbies 2016

    I am a referee in Grade and Subbies, and the main difference in my opinion is that a lot of Subbies people and players have little idea of the laws. I haven't had a Subbies game this year, but in the 3 Grade Colts games I've refereed, most of the questions I were asked were relevant in law...

    There hasn't seemed to be a full draw put up on this thread yet, and the CAS website has nothing. I have the Knox draw, so if you know your school's draw we can fill in the blanks. I'll put the home team first: Round 1 - 7 May Cranbrook v Knox Round 2 - 14 May Knox v Barker Round 3 - 21...

    Queensland Country vs Melbourne Rising, Rd 1 2015

    Great to see this game also used in the development of Australia's up and coming match officials after the lack of appointments at the World Cup this year. Ref was former Reds halfback Nic Berry, who has just started refereeing.

    School sporting scholarships/recruitment

    In terms of the Advanced English stuff that everyone is talking about, the difference between Standard and Advanced is that in Advanced you have to study at least one Shakespearean text, and you don't in Advanced. However, the reason why some schools encourage students strongly to do Advanced is...
