    Yes, not only legal but technically smart. With the outside foot well up the props are the pre-bind 'brake' and, most important, the inside foot can be further back so that the inside thigh is vertical and a solid base for the locks shoulder. For older and stronger players the props can transfer the brake to a stiff arm at "Bind" but with younger, not so strong, I'd suggest moving the foot back at "Set".

    Like much of the laws, it is best to use common sense rather than trying to tiptoe through a grammatical minefield.

    I doubt if anybody actually misunderstands what is required.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    A short bind can be legal. CAN not IS. Pulling down is the problem or, indeed, pushing and driving across. So no YO udon't ping short bind. YOu ping a bind that is not full arm or pullung down a bent arm.

    Minor point but wouldn't it be more logical to locate this in law 19.11 as it applies between the bind and set calls or am I missing something?

    But does rather beg the question... why has this been circulating via unofficial sources for nearly a week before WR got the official release out??
