Great question from an up and coming ref. Have any of you ever penalized someone under 16.2(a) without instead penalizing for off feet (assuming they do go off feet), sealing off etc.?

In case anyone is wondering:

16.2 Joining a ruck
(a) All players forming, joining or taking part in a ruck must have their heads and shoulders no lower than their hips.
Sanction: Free Kick

No, I haven't

Never ever.
Usually because most those that come in at that approach end up off their feet and that's the more C & O offence.

16.2 Joining a ruck
(a) All players forming, joining or taking part in a ruck must have their heads and shoulders no lower than their hips. Exception= permission granted by 16.4(b)
Sanction: Free Kick



16.4(b) Players must not handle the ball in a ruck except after a tackle if they are on their feet and have their hands on the ball before the ruck is formed.

Improved???
