    I've checked the 2018 Laws, 'Crotch' is not defined so therefore you are permitted to have it above your hips -albeit this is a little unusual and would cause me pain in normal circumstances.

    what they do with the other one is up to them, there are no laws requirements in the standard full set of laws.

    Locks binding requirements are set out in 19.7.C, they are not part of "all other players" because they are listed specifically.

    This is what this forum needs, a debate on where the hip starts and finishes. The joint is in the middle of the hip I would suggest. If no latitude is taken for the size of the whole hip then even the traditional ‘arms outside’ will not be classified as binding since the arms are below the hip joint.
    Sympathies on your hip. I suggest you get well oiled!

    I think that a crotch bind is normally on the front of the shorts and/or the jersey there, in most folks that will be above the hips. So I think I would allow a crotch bind by no8, but he is not allowed to move channel or let go and rebind in a different way. He could change one at a time, but is that really likely? What might he miss whilst mucking about with the bind, and it could come as an unwelcome (or welcome) surprise to the locks!

    personally I suffer from a low crotch. You wouldn't notice, but Mrs Crossref has. She's always talking about how low my crotch is

    What are the advantages and dangers of a #8 crotch-binding? Why does it need managing?
