    Interesting the law doesn’t actually say anything about above the horizontal ... and his upper body does make contact with the ground (although that happens in nearly every tackle)

    There's already a law against Dangerous Play.

    Having your nuts crushed while being dumped in touch may have been humiliating, but it wasn't dangerous IMO.

    I think he has been lifted, which of itself is not necessarily dangerous, but he has not be lowered to the ground safely, in fact he has been thrown to the ground. Definite penalty with a possible YC.

    Nothing in it. Line out to White, and perhaps an acknowledgment to the white players that they didn't drop the ball carrier and kept it all legal

    If you see it as "
    close to the wind on 9.18
    " that means it isn't over the line and you are also saying it is OK.

    The ball carrier is not taken past the horizontal and is not dropped from a height. One player has him round the pelvic area and the other is round the thorax so no foul play.

    I agree that wasn't dangerous , and therefore not covered by the Law on dangerous play

    Which is exactly why I think we need a new law. I don't think we want people being carried

    But why?

    What's the difference between being carried and being lifted? Would the ban on carrying apply to team mates or just opponents? I just don't think it's a big issue - and if it happens and does become dangerous, we already have the laws to penalise them.

    Whilst i I disagree with those who say no offence, I agree there is no requirement for a new law, this is adequately covered by laws relating to dangerous play (if you view it as dangerous of course!)

    I don't think it's a big issue, either; but on balance I think the game would be a little bit better if there was a no carrying law - not because it's dangerous, but because I don't think it's part of what makes rugby the great game it is.

    But no biggie, I don't care much either way and I'd far rather WR spent some time and effort sorting out the ruck.
