    Has this changed recently?

    I must admit I didn't realise the peeling off player had such a big area to move in ..... until I just read 19.12(b).

    Until now, I assumed he had to stay close to the Lineout - it would certainly look wrong to me if he peeled off in a huge arc 9.95m from his LOT, ran behind his SH, only to run 9.95m forward again before he's even crossed the gain line, but the law does allow it.

    19.12 PEELING OFF
    (b) A player who peels off, must stay within the area from that player’s line of touch to 10 metres from the line of touch, and must keep moving until the lineout has ended.
    Sanction: Free Kick on the 15-metre line, in line with the line of touch.

    A lineout player 'peels off' when leaving the lineout to catch the ball knocked or passed back by a team-mate.
    I think what was originally envisaged was the ball coming directly from a team-mate in the lineout, but the wording does allow the receiver to act as an intermediary.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    2007 is the oldest Law Book I've got and it's in there as above.

    The change was made in 2001. Before then the peeler had to stay "near the lineout".

    but which still applies at U11 U12 in RFU-land

    All “peeling off” movements must be close to and parallel with the line out.
    Players must keep moving. Lifting/supporting is prohibited at this level (ie a
    player may not bind to a jumper until they return to the ground). The player
    designated to receive the ball (ie the scrum half) may not enter the line out
    to compete for the ball.

    This is why I put this up. As ex-players a lot of us carry forward the knowledge from playing days too and sometimes your brain doesn't catch up until it happens in a game.

    Not to sound like Chopper but what do people think of having multiple peelers. The way the law is written (singular) it sounds like you should only have one peeler but it can certainly be read that many could peel as the law doesn't say must receive the pass.

    No problem with multiple peelers surely? We used it to great effect - in fact it was one of our best moves.
