    Sorry gents, but I think thread is in danger of confusing the hell out of a Ref starting out.
    Law 16.10 All players in a Maul must be caught in or bound to it and not just alongside it


    Remember that the Laws define a bind as
    Grasping another player’s body firmly between the shoulders and the hips with the whole arm in contact from hand to shoulder.
    so the man at the back can be the ball carrier as long as one arm is bound to the shoulder (as per the #8 at a scrum)
