Could someone at Souths please provide their captain with a Rugby Law book so he doesn't have to ask the referee to explain every decision he makes?
And what makes you think most players actually know all the laws?! Quite simply they don't - I have been reffing for almost 20 years, and I have lost count of the number of times players quite simply have no clue for even simple things like - when can they leave the LO to follow the ball, or, when is the ball out of the ruck/ tackle..
The one that always does my lolly is at the captains toss, and the captain who guesses correctly says: 'We will receive'..... I always say to myself when this happens - R U kidding me?!
btw - the ref asking the captain to tell his team of the warning is simply a 'tick-in-the-box' a ref goes thru - especially so when he is being coached by a senior ref coach on the day... lol...
