    Questioned asked by another coach (via a ref) saying there are different rulings on the hand off for lower level ladies games, has anyone ever seen them or are they an urban myth?

    That would make it near impossible to fend anybody coming to tackle low.

    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    yes indeed - absolutely ... and where "low" could mean as high as the waist... not necessarily as low as the ankles

    Or was it just a blow to the head ?

    I called it as a handoff with excessive force, i got a puzzled expression, and then a wry grin from the player, he knew what he'd done and he knew I'd seen it.

    No contact with the head would in many respects make decisions easier to sell

    In some regions there are some variations with regulations which stipulate no hand off above shoulder height.

    Confirming, makes refereeing 7s at that age grade very interesting.

    As a point of information, Cambridge full back Joe Tarrant was shown a Yellow Card for to the face in their win against Canterbury yesterday.
    I was too far away to get a good view.

    The actual offence was aN open hand push/strike to the face to an off the ball player, so wasn’t a hand off. It was an AR call.
