    "at least 2 metres"

    Sorry my logicometer has switched off. Does this mean anywhere between 2 metres away and the goal line (which could be some considerable distance away)???

    I assumed it meant anywhere between 2m and 10m from the LOT ie the general offside line for non-participating players. Ie he's got an approx 6.5m wide area to do his thing because don't forget the 2m and 10m mentioned are measured from different places.

    Mind you if he's the SH for the throwing in side ie he's expecting to catch the ball, he won't be of any use 10m back from the LO, and if he's the SH for the non-throwing in side, if he doesn't want to be there he can drop back to the general offside line anyway. The problem for him then though, is that if his team do win the ball, he won't be able to run forward to take it until the LO was over.

    For me it is anywhere between 2m and about 8m.

    Why?

    Because if he is 10m back he is no longer a receiver, he is part of the back line.
    Why 8m? Because I want to be able to differentiate him from the backs...........because he can come forward before the line out is over, and they can't, so I need to easily know who he is.
