    Default Peeling props

    Didn't happen to me so I can only pass the info I have on.

    SM v LV at the weekend. SM set up a LO near half way and for the sake of this discussion the LO is set, static receivers... (i.e. no dynamic pre-throw movement).

    Hooker throws the ball in and as the ball is leaving his hands the SM prop peels off and starts to run on an arc behind the receiver (say 5m away). Ball is tipped down to the receiver and then the dynamic prop receives a pass from the receiver and steams forward.

    Call?

    The only requirements for a player peeling off are:

    1. The player peeling off does do only after the ball leaves the thrower's hands
    2. Player peeling off must stay in an area between the line of touch and 10m from the line of touch (i.e. the offside line of the non-participating players on his team), and of course within 15m from the touch line (otherwise he/she has left the lineout early).

    Is the intent that the "ball knocked or passed back by a team-mate" has to be the player in the air? I dont see that this is required.

    Both 1 and 2 are satisfied above. I dont see a problem....yet

    Good point. The prop definitely did that as that was his main motive.

    This sounds like quite a good move.

    Next point is how many players can peel at once. Could you have a dynamic scattering of players?

    No issues with it if it was timed right.
