    Sorry I was not trying to confuse matters more that they already were (or were not) in some folks minds. i now see one of the potential benefits of defining the 22 as only in the field of play. I was (although I don't agree with it) recognising that some on here think if the ball is kicked out outside the 22, taking the QTI inside the 22 allows the defenders to kick directly for touch.

    As always we can't take the Law too literally

    The new Law definition supports the notion that taking a QTI into your own 22m is putting the ball into your own 22m . So no gain in ground

    But as pointed out, if this is the case then the same Law implies that throwing the ball in at a lineout into your own 22 would also be putting the ball into your own 22 . But we know that's not how it's done

    So it hasnt really helped us, in fact

    Trolling? You could scarcely have chosen a more irrelevant example.

    I am suggesting that it is duplicitous to quote chapter & verse from law book on one hand, then, in the next breath, advise not to take laws too literally.

    This is new in the 2018 book

    9.24. A ball-carrier is permitted to hand off an opponent provided excessive force is not used.
