Good point. In which case then, I’d like to hear the thoughts of one of the qualified refs on here

Just watched Barbarians vs New Zealand 1973 on scrum V on BBC iPlayer. THAT try was wonderful to watch yet again but there were other great passing movements that brought a smile to my face. Best TGI g about the game compared to today was the scrums. No messing about, linked together quickly as an 8, then locked against the opposing pack. Scrums all took place in a few seconds.

But who was the only English player to touch the ball in the move that led to that try? No cheating :D

And without cheating again - the other two Englishmen in the 15?

I still would like to know if the off side line at a ruck is hindmost foot or hindmost part of body.
