    A document listing theage grade variations round the world might be an interesting thing to build on the wiki.

    I have carried out a quick scan of threads and links to current under 18 law variations and it would appear that only governing bodies who do not make reference to IRB 2001 request for squeeze ball to be penalised by referee at under 18 and below are Australia and New Zealand http://www.boprugby.co.nz/downloads/...02017%20v2.pdf

    It would be interesting to know if referees in Australia and New Zealand penalise this dangerous technique/ practice or whether it is allowed?

    I seem to remember that it was outlawed several years ago in Oz but has crept back in. I'm not aware that it is defined as being illegal in any of our documents.

    Here's a bit of interesting history:

    Thanks Dickie it looks as though RugbyCanada needed to remind referees and coaches in 2009 about IRB 2001 law interpretation.

    I have noticed it in the Elite game that as a player sees he is isolated and going to be tackled by two players will go to ground and carryout squeeze ball (quickly). They are only penalised if player on his feet manages to get hands on ball before supporting players arrive.

    I would bet my bottom dollar that this technique will be coached at Academy level which includes under 18 players. Will ask Hampshire Training Officer to raise at January meeting.

    Keep us informed if anything happens in Australia because we often get visiting under 18 school sides.

    It seems odd that the IRB would issue this statement but then not include it in the global laws:

    “Unions are requested to adopt Domestic Variations, which makes the action known as the squeeze ball, illegal for all age levels from under 18 downwards.” (Memo from IRB Interpretation, November 8, 2001).
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Certainly only outlawed below u13s..and documented. Also documented positive for u13 and above in our GMGs.
    "The tackled player must not position their body (eg. ‘squeeze ball’) to delay the release of the ball when
    isolated or under pressure. The ball must be available immediately for play (PK). (Note: this technique is
    illegal entirely in Pathway U6-U12)."
