    I seem to recall from somewhere buried deep in the depths of what masquerades as my brain, from a time before something or other, that this concept is lifted from a ball hits overhanging tree branch -> tree roots/trunk are in touch -> ball is in touch -> lineout.

    Of course that is now superseded possibly as CR has listed above.

    The bigger issue here is that crossref has misnumbered the quiz, as #7 was the tackle in goal question. Or are the quizzes being renumbered in the 2018 rewrite?

    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you... you must be a rugby referee!

    Yes I have two #7 and can't edit the thread title

    If some kind MOD could change the thread to be 8/10 Mind the Spider

    That would be lovely

    Yep, IIRC it came in with the rewrite.

    The referee will deem the ball to be dead when:

    f. The ball hits anything above the playing area.
    and that presumably excludes the crossbars?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I imagine it was mentioned to those who might have cameras above the playing area some time ago, and that they forgot about those of us who have tree branches up there.

    So another one that's a law change for some but not for others.

    An interesting follow up to this question is scenarios such as

    Red kick long for touch , the ball travels 40m upfield and just inside the touchline it makes a glancing contact with the spider cam , and continues into touch .

    Decision ?

    (a clue - this law is not properly thought through )

    So the ball is dead.

    I am surprised that people think a lineout would happen ? The ball is dead but it's not in touch
    Oh yes it is (in touch)

    Touch or touch-in-goal

    The ball is in touch or touch-in-goal when:
    a. The ball or ball-carrier touches the touchline, touch-in-goal line or anything beyond.

    I bit ridiculous, but remember this is rugby not brain surgery. It is intentionally absurd. Trying to make sense of it is a fool's endeavor


    Yes the ball is dead, why is it dead? the ball has touched anything beyond


    Ain't it great, comedy. Alas we our again its (rugby) fools
