Flouting the law ...

From Mr R Phillips

Sir, Further to Steve Bale's Commentary on last Saturday's Wasps-Bath encounter illustrating the negative blight that is still apparent in our game, I would like to question further the complete lack of control of the offside law by officials. The persistent flouting of that law in ruck, maul and lineout is stifling the game, while at the same time an expansive and adventurous approach in the southern hemisphere is funding the new professional era.

Yours sincerely


Redland, Avon
