    Clarification, Change, Removal of grey area, resolution of ambiguity, filling a lacuna ...

    Whatever you want to call it, it doesn't seem to have worked, as a lot of refs (here at least) seem to saying they will take no notice and will continue to ref these scenarios exactly as they always have : ie different refs will make different decisions.... even though it's no longer a grey area.

    must be very frustrating for the Law Book authors.

    I think most refs will referee the player on the ground in the FoP in line with the laws now. Whether the intention of the law was to include in-goal is questionable, and there will be many who conclude it wasn't. So it will remain a grey area, yes.

    My sympathies for the Law Book authors' frustrations is somewhat tempered.
