for me it's the 'knock on'.  watching the blues v ospreys and the number of knock ons in that rain, it can't really be helped can it?  fair enough for deliberate knock on's but knock ons are another thing that slows the game down

The worst law in rugby has to be numbers in the line out...

Apparently, if you hack the ball on with your foot, whilst having your body still in touch it is allowed (as long as the ball is in play of course) . It happened the other day in a powergen cup match and none of the players or pundits knew the rule. the ball was hacked on and a try was scored for Leicester. What's that all about?

The rolling maul very rarely done properly and should be banned.

Download the laws here:

http://www.irb.com/Laws/Laws/LawsOfTheGame/

page 92, law 19, it says:

A player in touch may kick or knock the ball, but not hold it. providing it has not crossed the plane of the touch line.

I wonder how many players or officials know that one. I can rememebr loads of times when a player with one foot in touch has fly hacked the ball with the other on only to be recalled by the touch judge. A ludicruous ruling.

The game having to be stopped for minor injuries.  This season more than any itís doing my head in   Fair enough if itís a serious one, but Union should employ the League system where play continues and a sub can come on until treatment has finished.

3 points for a pen... It does nothing for the game IMO...  throw them in the sin bin and open up the field for 10 mins.... like in Ice Hockey.. POWERPLAY!

I agree with this. About 50% of rolling mauls look dodgy to me. Munster are one of the biggest culprits of this. I don't think it should be banned but the rules should be cleared up and the refs in both hemispheres need to be consistent.

And 3 points for a drop goal? should be 2 at the most.

There'd be no players left on the pitch :)

What about 2pts for a pen? The problem with this of course is that it isn't enough of a deterrent.

But is the ref the right person to decide what is a serious injury and what isn't?
