Knock on, surely? Ball went forward to beat a covering player.

Tasty skillz, though


yeah it's a knock on afaik.


Nah - it's not a knock on.

I'm no expert on the rulez, i've never let that stop me talking nonsense and i'm not going to let it stop me now.


Lansdowne used to have a move where one of the backs would head the ball forward like a chip through, would specifically mention it to the ref before the game to make sure he was ok with it. As far as am aware still legal to do, if anyone wants to give it a go at the weekend

We saw Mullet perform something similar in Herbert Park a few years back. Before the camera phone unfortunately

We've talked to refs about this one too!

If you're in possession of the ball and header it forward, it's considered being propelled forwards from your hands and so it's not a legal move.

BUT..... if some one was to throw the ball (not forwards) for someone to header it without them catching it first, that's legit. So there.

:lol: I think that was over my head too.

Surely a knock on? Although Drico did similar?

EDIT: Although not as blatantly forward.

heading over to this on a stag, delighted it's not on easy to see TV :D


Would like to see Oliver get more gametime and give a pre-season like break to Cloete after coming up straight from Super Rugby and CC.

Kleyn will likewise be playing a rake of games in the next few weeks so maybe give O'Shea or Grobler a start alongside Mr Indestructible?

Are we at "we need to talk about JJ" time yet? He's a fine footballer but he's no 10.


Yeah - think we need to start seeing him as a 12/15, he hasn't really pushed on at 10


He's very close to being the Jeremy Staunton of this era- a very talented rugby player who doesn't quite have a skill set to excel in any one position so has flashes of erratic brilliance in several different slots.

Speaking of silky moves - I used to play with a lad in college, sadly died in a helicopter crash of all things a few years back, who used to run a switch by bouncing the ball backwards under his legs as he ran across the field.

Only ever worked once in a match but Christ it was a thing of beauty.

that's it, would be generally be a centre with the other one running through. can see how it would be considered a knock on

Tadhg Furlong and Iain Henderson aren’t warming up with the rest of the squad.

Ferg? Seriously?

Hendy must have been an injury to come off at half time then, thankfully we have the break week.

Is todays session some sort of Public/PR run out in Dubarry park?, I heard on the radio that 22 of the squad will be training today which seems on the low side for a serious training session.

I misunderstood what you meant above when you said 'not there', took it as reply to my Ryan question and was very confused. :blush:

As you were.

Never heard of a falcon (off the head) going forward to be considered a knock on.

You have to wonder does Warwick have compromising photos of someone in the setup at this point. Doesn’t speak much for Henry’s fitness either that Deysel jumps him.

Looked it up and Warwick is contracted to 2020, so it's not like they're having him play for a contract.
