    unless of the added point of it possibly also being a PT of course?

    I think it's easier to describe the second situation as cynical, but it's pretty similar and both demonstrate an (IMO) silly double standard.

    But the point at discussion isn't about being cynical. It's about attempting something that isn't realistic

    see post #20.

    For deciding on a penalty, sure, but we're still only giving card for cynical offences, right?

    Cynical offences yes, but also for attempted interceptions

    but thats not a distinction made in the laws that are being used to support the YC for attempting and failing at something that was unrealistic.

    so what about the attacking centre scenario?

    I think that a card in that situation was harsh. For me he had his hand was above his head and was palm down slightly. I think this is why the YC was given. If it was out in front of him at say waist height then his palm wouldn't have been face down (most likely). I do think he wanted possession and so think is was harsh but it's in the Law.

    In the case where the opposite (the attacking player knocks it down deliberately, I would think that the pass being directed towrads him give a reasonable expectation?? But the law quoted earlier doesn't really make a distinction between an attacking team (In possession) or a defending team (not in Possession). So I guess if you deam it a deliberate knock on from the pass receiver then a YC would be justified? Maybe include it in your brief at the start of the game so they're aware?

    I think we were engaging in reductio ad absurdam. I was, anyway.
