Clip 2 - 5 June 2019 - Law 9

Will Genia of the Rebels kicks ahead. The ball bounces into touch. Kurtley Beale of the Waratahs picks up the ball in touch and in touch Anaru Rangi of the Rebels looks and knocks the ball out of Beale's hand. The referee penalises Rangi.



Here are sections of law to support the referee's action:

Law 9 Foul Play

9.7: A player must not:
a. Intentionally infringe any law of the game.
Sanction: Penalty.

9.27: A player must not do anything that is against the spirit of good sportsmanship.

What Rangi does, he does deliberately and it's nasty, bad manners, unsporting, contrary to the aims of the game and stupid. advert
