    Anyway... Back to the OP. If the referees can't get the interpretation of a knock on correct (which they can't), then we should basically go to modified touch football rules.

    Lose control of the ball into another player or the ball hits the ground unintentionally then its a scrum or handover depending on the tackle count.

    The referees are basically calling it that way anyway. There were several examples of that kind of ruling in the games played yesterday alone.

    If you drink enough beer none of this matters and Steve Roach starts to make sense

    Are we playing Jeopardy?
    If they're the answers, then in every case the question is "The Burgess Brothers".

    This really bugs me too.

    Refs need to use more common sense!

    Either you get it or you don't

    What Buzz Rothfield often does on the door of a knock shop (Stilettos) when his mate Eddie puts money in his TAB account.
