    I imagine it goes like that but without steps 1 and 2.

    Let's wait and see !
    The last odd one was about having control when scoring a try and a few days later people posted that there had indeed been a memo ...

    I predict the topic of forward passes will be the same

    "Forward speed" is speed towards the opponents' dead ball line.
    Because the ball is still travelling backward over the ground
    Relative to the ground is irrelevant.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    In which case you could call it a forward pass even if it went towards the players own DBL. If you did that it would certainly be a legalistic interpretation of the laws

    but that is what happens...

    run forward at 20 mph
    pass backwards over head at 10 mph
    ball is moving at +20-10=+10mph

    ball thus moving towards oppo DBL.

    Is that a forward pass?

    I am taking about
    Player runs toward own goal line at 10mph
    Passes to his team mate, ball is now travelling toward own goal line at 5mph

    So he has increased the forward velocity of the ball
    From -10 to -5
    No one would call that a forward pass

    I'm still not seeing it?

    run towards own DBL at 10 mph
    pass towards own DBL at 5mph
    ball is moving at -10-5=-15 mph

    Thus ball moving towards own DBL.

    The scenario is
    Player (-10) + throw (+ 4) = ball (-6)

    This breaks OB rule in #9 (because it +4 ) but it's not a forward pass .. because the result is still negative (-6)

    Does that make sense

    If a train leaves Cardiff for Twickenham at 3pm travelling at 50mph and another leaves Twickenham at 4:30pm travelling at 75mph....
