    Austin Healey:
    A tackled player, who is being held on the ground, can't pop the ball up to a support runner. It's an area of law that needs looked at because so many teams are doing it.

    well, he has sort of a point. Clearly the tackled player can release or pass etc... but some of the time gaps allowed to do so really stretch it somewhat.

    Yes, but the solution is a defender on his feet to approach to play the ball and the tackled player loses his right to pass and can only then release to the opposition.

    An issue of safety rather than anything else. It's unclear in the age grade variations (rfu land) that it is given anything more than a free kick?
