    However, that clip, you can see he's looking direct at the catcher and he appears to slow his run down. So certainly if you subscribe to the 'nothing happens by accident' in professional sports premise, he's certainly put himself in the position to be landed on, so I can buy that outcome.

    50/50 For me I think

    I think this one is not going away. WORLD RUGBY needs to revisit it.

    So what are the thoughts on the recently posted scenario about a stationary player waiting to catch the ball who is clattered into by a jumping player? Current interpretation would suggest the stationary player gets penalised, but the more I think about it the more I think this is wrong. How can a stationary player waiting to catch a ball be responsible if a player leaps into him? I don't but the argument he has to get out of the way, he is entitled to wait and decide not to jump.

    Regardless of current guidance, what do you think the treatment should be in this scenario?

    Perhaps we should adopt the NFL Fair Catch. A player waiting to catch the ball signals by waving his hand. He is then allowed to catch the ball, but cannot advance it. If he muffs the catch, it is "play on".

    Whether a successful catch should give you a Free Kick or a scrum is up for argument.

    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Personally I think its potentially too "complicated" - but then again it clearly works dor the NFL so that's probably overly concerned on my behalf.

    As for scrum/FK, maybe whilst the player himself cannot run or kick maybe he game for a post ctach taclklkle.ruck/maul. pass away.

    good debating point OB - I am aware you have suggested this before of course.

    It gives you a FK if it is inside the 22 )
