Any precedents for ball hitting spidercam incidents in international matches? Anon, AustraliaThe incident youre referring to was George Fords high kick to the Wallaby back-three in the Sydney Test. Korey Toomer Jersey . The ball ricocheted into Courtney Lawes hands, England forced an attacking position and Billy Vunipola drove over for a try that put England ahead. Referee Nigel Owens explained to both captains that he had made a 50-50 decision to allow play to continue.Such events are virtually unknown - spidercams have only been in use in recent times - but a search through the archives reveals that an incident that occurred in the 1906 Wales-Scotland match at Cardiff is worthy of consideration.At the time, high social status was attached to attendance at Waless matches and even Cardiffs Chief Constable felt it his duty to be prominently seen when games were staged on his patch. He turned out in his finery as usual for the 1906 Championship clash, little realising he was about to play a part in the evolution of rugby unions laws.Early in the game the Scottish forward David Bedell-Sivright led a foot-rush into the Welsh quarter before toeing the ball over the goal line, only to see it rebound off the Chief Constable who was strutting his stuff on the field of play, five or so metres from the dead-ball-line. The Scot quickly adjusted his path and still won the race to touch down for what many believed to be a fair try.In the absence of any law relating to such circumstances, the referee ruled a dead ball on the grounds that he felt the ball would otherwise have rolled out of play. He felt the defending side should have the advantage and so a drop-out was awarded for Wales to re-start the match.There was sufficient controversy in the aftermath for the International Board to draw up fresh guidance. The good Chief Constable warranted his own footnote to the history of the games laws when the Board subsequently ruled that in future:1. If the Referee thought the ball would have gone dead he should have disallowed the try.2. If the referee thought a try would otherwise have been gained he should have awarded the try.3. If he were in doubt he should give the point against the side responsible for the ground.4. All officials and spectators should be regarded by the referee in the same manner as offending players on the home side.Different times, different circumstances, but if there had been spidercams at the time of the 1906 Law changes, then arguably Nigel Owenss decision in Sydney would have been absolutely right. Jahleel Addae Jersey .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. Jason Verrett Jersey . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. http:///...oey-bosa-jersey.html . Burke is expected to miss two to three months after breaking a finger in the teams third preseason game. Tinsley, a 10-year veteran, spent the last two seasons in Utah, where the point guard averaged 3. Kagiso Rabada commanded respect and Keshav Maharaj sparked curiosity, but Temba Bavuma has crept into Australian hearts as a pint-sized talent with a Midas touch. The ABC called Bavuma the X-factor in South Africas WACA win, with praise for his stoic batting, stunning fielding, surprisingly effective bowling, and continuous quest to seek out a high-five.Everybody loves him at the moment.He is a guy that things seem to happen around, said South Africa coach Russell Domingo.Bavumas fielding first caught international attention last November , when he was substituting for an injured Dale Steyn in Mohali. Bavuma was positioned at short leg when M Vijay inside edged a googly from Imran Tahir to his left. He dived full length to take the catch.Later in the tour Bavuma impressed again when, with the series already lost, he was asked to open the batting in the final Test in Delhi. In an unfamiliar position, Bavuma scored 22 and 34 but spent more than four hours at the crease, longer than his predecessor Stiaan van Zyl had in five innings before he was dropped. That innings showed Bavumas temperament to bat in Test cricket but few outside the team guessed he could bowl at this level too.Temba does a bit of bowling in the nets and everyone is like, Woah, Temba, thats pretty good, Rabada said.Most were pleased to hear that Bavuma can catch Rabadas attention somewhere, because he can be easy to miss on the field. When Rabada bowled Usman Khawaja on the second day of the Perth Test - South Africas first wicket after Steyn had left the field with a broken shoulder - Bavuma waited and waited for his chance to congratulate Rabada. Eventually, it needed a tap on the shoulder before Rabada responded. The video went viral, watched many more times than training footage of South Africas bowling coach Charl Langeveldt in discussion with Bavuma.The conversation - which Langeveldt later said was about using the seam - hinted that Bavuma might be called on to make up for some of Steyns absence. Australias batsmen must have been looking forward to the relief. At 1.61 metres tall, with only 200 first-class balls to his naame before the Test, how dangerous could Bavuma really be?Dangerous enough to hit a crack, move back in and hit Usman Khawaja plumb in front of leg. Max Tuerk Jersey. Had Bavuma not overstepped, he could have been only the 21st bowler in Test cricket to take a wicket with his first ball. That his delivery stride occupies the entire area from the bowling crease to the popping crease will only add to his budding cult aura. The beamer that unsettled Josh Hazlewood the ball before Bavuma claimed his first Test wicket delighted his team-mates and the small WACA crowd.For all the fun of his on-field heroics, Bavuma himself was ultra-serious in his analysis when he spoke to ABC. I was obviously quite disappointed at that. Weve spoken long and hard about no no-balls, he said. As one of the batters who keeps on shouting at the bowlers for a no-ball, obviously its not a great thing. I was happy to get a chance to bowl and things went decently (after that).Domingo confirmed Bavuma was similarly critical about his half-century in the first innings, knowing the responsibility he had in the middle order. He will be the first to say he is disappointed that he didnt kick on after getting fifty, Domingo said. He played really beautifully in that first innings and held it together for us. He is still learning but he is a good kid and a great asset for our team.The Australian newspaper agreed, calling Bavuma a competitive and wily cricketer. For South Africans to see their players being so warmly embraced at what was once seen as among the most hostile places to tour, is a reassurance that the stresses of last summer may be overcome after all. For them to see their players of colour - long suspected of being included in squads to make up numbers - attract so much admiration and awe is another reassurance that this time, crickets efforts to embrace change could be genuine, that opportunities are being provided to the right people, and that they are taking them, making names and winning hearts.
