    In the FoP you don't let them get on with it when they are on the ground. There is a slight relaxation of that in in-goal.

    Anyway, why do you want a pile of bodies on the ground struggling with the ball?

    This often happens in the NFL when there is a fumble, and everybody knows there is a lot of cheating going on at the bottom of the pile while the officials peel players away to find out who has the ball.

    For exactly that reason. We don't want them "sorting it out" themselves!

    That's how tempers get flared and punch ups start.

    Do something positive (score or make dead), or i'll call a halt and re-start the game somehow.

    I thought we were discussing PLAYERS held up, not a hand under the BALL and few if any players on their feet.
    I thought the discussion was "held up in goal", this only ever concerns the ball, the player may be held up in the process, but all that matters is that the ball is not grounded.

    99 times out of a 100 the ball carrier is not on his feet when the ball is held off the floor.

    If the ball is held up off the floor it generally requires more than a hand under it.

    I know, but if a maul started in the field of play and then moved into in-goal and collapsed how long would you allow to see the ball being grounded

    I guess I'll requote the OP.

    I've known referees who interpret it as the player with the ball has an instant (the same instant in the field of play they would have to play the ball), while others would allow the player with the ball 10-15 seconds to try and wrestle the ball to the ground.

    Law 22.10 says


    But how long do you wait to consider the player cannot ground the ball?
    Even if you can't have a maul in goal you could still have a maul like "thingy" in goal.

    Sure, if it has collapsed, blow the thing up quickly.

    Read the first line.

    The OP asked about a PLAYER, at least that's how I read it. There is no mention of the ball though I assume that the intended that the PLAYER be in possession of it.

    If you have a "maul" in goal that is moving and in no immediate danger of going down, why would you blow that up quickly?

    Experience is what you get from not reading it.

    Because you can bet anything you like, someone's offside in there.

    But once the "maul" goes into in-goal, the maul ceases to exist and all the offside lines disappear. Players can go where they like surely.

    Hmm, be interesting to get a definitive answer on this as it's not something I've ever considered let alone witnessed.

    If players are still on their feet, in goal, then why should there be a time limit to anything? As long as no laws are being broken/intent is good and there is a fair competition for the ball, why not let them get on with it as you would in the FoP. It'll either end up with a 22-drop, held up scrum 5 attack or try.

    Mauls that end up in in goal and are held up/inconclusive are always 5m scrum - n'est pas?

    I think Skids meant where the "maul" went through in-goal and went over the DBL or the TiG lines.
