    In this context exposed means the ball has no one over it, or the ball has left the ruck confines.

    What I THINK it means is that we are meant to use the Seagull Test instead of the Rubber Band Test.

    Eg if the ball is on the ground and between the legs of a player pushing in the ruck, it may pass the Seagull Test of ruck over but fail the Rubber Band Test.

    so is the concept of 'use it' now over? If a ref is inclined to call 'use it' it probably means the ball is exposed and open slather

    In all the video examples there is no one on their feet, I believe this is the key. The ball is effectively in the open begging to be picked up.

    OK. So we are expected to carry on as normal (with "Use It") if players are on their feet and the ball is at the back of the ruck?

    Yes, that’s what we were told.

    Noting that 'on their feet' means that if they lifted their arms, they wouldn't fall over forwards
