    To be greeted by shouts of "how did he get there" and the defence trying to pull him out of the maul!

    I though going through the middle was fine, as in that scenario the 'swimmer' is caught in to the maul.

    All players in a maul must be caught in or bound to it and not just alongside it.

    Well if he is going through the centre and is caught in then he is not a 'swimmer' as I understand it.
    'Swimmers' move up the side by having 1 arm bound at all times but change the bind/arm as they go.

    I played in a game with there was a line out (to the opposition). They caught the ball and we all bound on and formed a Maul. We went backwards for a few meters then we stopped the momentum. The ref then told me I was offside and needed to leave the Maul. I had been bound on legally from the start and remained bound throughout. I didn't understand, but obeyed. Ended up losing a try as they were able to get the Maul going another 15 - 20m. Was that a right call?

    How can we tell? I presume the referee saw it differently.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.
