    The ripper should be in contact with the ball carrier before the ball is transferred.

    However don't forget that if the ball is 'long' passed to a player who then runs or passes it is play on.
    So the 'long arm transfer' ban is only applicable if it leads to a maul?

    A long arm pass to a player who then takes it into open play is fine?

    (Does make sense when I think about what I've seen in practice but just wanted to check!)

    Yes...effectively this scenario is similar to any other pass in open play.
    ie if the ball is passed backwards to a support player who then runs in to a player in front of him (and gains a material advantage by doing so ) then it is penalisable.
