Once again, I am not saying this is what happened, I'm saying that is how I would be defending it.
(Putting it this way allows me to have an opinion without being continually misrepresented. The additional bold emphasis to assist those who habitually skim posts without reading them fully)
Blue eight makes a run and is stopped by gold eight but both players stay on their feet. He manages to turn , shielding the ball, but is temporarily isolated from his team mates. No maul has formed
Gold five runs around blue eight and attempts to rip away the ball, thereby obstructing blues arriving team mates from assisting. The ball is trapped until gold eight wrestles him to the ground.
My question is whether gold five is offside or not?
Can anyone point me towards the relevant
Anybody got or seen a policy for grading refs up to level 6 ?

(a) All players in a position to shove. When a scrum has formed, the body and feet of each front row player must be in a normal position to make a forward shove.
Sanction: Free Kick
