Nope, nope, nope? Chow (AUS) v Wilcock (AUS)

Friday fencing flamewar time! Keeping it local today for this week’s Impossible Ref Call  with a lovely slow-mo from Zak Henry.

From the poules at last weekend’s NSW State Championships, here’s Sydney Sabre’s John Chow v UNSW’s Adam Wilcock. We’ve had a bit of an internal debate at the club about this one. What’s your call?

Back to A-grade tomorrow, I promise.

This work is made possible by the research work done by the staff and students at the Sydney Sabre Centre, so if you like this I would really appreciate you leaving a review on Facebook and Google – 5 stars would be great but even better if you tell us why!
We read every single review and are always looking to improve how we do things because ultimately Sydney Sabre is all about  sharing this great sport and making it accessible to everyone. I know that this sport is a big part of who I am today, and wish this place was around when I was growing up.
If that isn’t enough motivation for you, here’s another reason: we will give you a stackable 5% discount off on anything we sell (services and stuff) for each review that you leave for us, for one transaction. You can spend it on yourself or use it to subsidise a friend (or a whole bunch of friends, if you want to bring along a horde).
Thanks in advance.

  1. I can’t see why there is much debate. En finale, attaque de gauche, touche, point. Yes, yes the foot came down before the arrival of the touch. Unfortunately for FoR, the contre-attaque , while arriving quite early came after the changeover had already occurred and FoR’s foot also landed before the arrival of the touch. At normal speed it would look and feel even more clear that FoL had succeeded in taking over and follows through.

  2. Probably an unpopular idea given the site, but finally attack right vs preparation or attack no (more the weird move of the guard to quarte/four than the foot) from the left.

    I’ll settle on preparation from the left, however. And I’m prepared to be slaughtered on that. 🙂
