    Default sliding back

    I thought it was now illegal; to slide back through a maul holding the ball, and that the ball had to be actually handed back through the maul instead

    But I can;t find that reference online.

    was that just a experimental idea, or is online wrong?

    Secondary to that -= the "long pass" thing also?

    No didds. You are correct. This practice is now illegal as is the 'long arm transfer' where the ball carrier at the front transfers the ball directly to the hindmost player.

    so its just not included in the online version, which is thus incorrect? (or at least not fully replicated?)

    It was a Law Application Guideline, distributed by RFU in Juy 2016.
    20160705-Maul_Clarification.jpg
    The Powerpoint notes stated:

    The ripper must be attached to the jumper - No long arm transfers

    The ball must be transferred hand to hand - No Sliding backwards

    Arriving players must not join ahead of the ball carrier

    Arriving players from both teams must not slide or swim along the side of the maul


    It seems to be a clarification of:

    17.2

    (b) A player must be caught in or bound to the maul and not just alongside it.
    Sanction: Penalty kick

    (c) Placing a hand on another player in the maul does not constitute binding.
    Sanction: Penalty kick
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    It's on the World Rugby website as a law application guideline with videos.
