    Default maul amendment - video

    There was a couple of videos Ive seen (from world rugby? not sure) highlighting the amendments about the ball beign transferred in a maul... including the one about not being able to hand the ball over a bound player to somebody behind him.

    anybody got a link for those videos? Ive googled but am having no luck, so am clearly not finding the correct google terms!

    cheers

    I don't get the "long placements are to be avoided" example - how are the laws changing? At what point is a placement long?

    long placement means the ball holder cannot hand the ball over the back of a bound on player to a player behind him. If you look at the bottom video to the link above you'll see what I mean.

    basically the ball carrier has to have the ball taken from him by somebody immediately adjacent to him etc

    e.g.

    4 jumps and catches
    1 binds onto 4
    6 binds one armed to 1.
    4 hands the ball over 1's back to 6

    For some time, "long placements" are something I have thought should be made illegal. They effectively prevent the opposing team from sacking or contesting the formation of a maul at a line-out. I even asked Craig Joubert about it on SA Referees a couple of years ago.

    http://www.sareferees.com/ref-replie...ubert/2829602/

    The IRB Law Application Guidelines (Maul Working Group outcomes) state... 'The maul must be formed so that the opposition can contest the maul at the formation; this includes the formation of the maul at a line-out and from a maul formed after kick-offs or restart kicks.'

    The lineout jumper cannot be tackled when his feet are off the ground, so if he is allowed to hand the ball back to a player beyond his two lifters, then he and those lifters are obstructing the opponents.
