    Definitely very lateral
    But for my money, not clearly and obviously forward, so I can see why the ref (and AR who was on the spot) called play on.

    Sorry, that’s not particularly helpful. Also the OP doesn’t say that he’s not a referee, so wrong to assume whether he is or not. Even if he’s just a supporter, the pass looked wrong to him, hence the question. At least take the time to see it with your own eyes before deciding if it legal, or not.

    Any fan describing a (legal) momentum pass where the passer is tackled, will say the ball went forward 5m and more, yet the referee allowed play continue. Sounds like a forward pass, until you see the replay and realise it was the correct call to play .
    OP gave a very clear and specific scenario and asked a very clear and simple question.
    The correct answer to their query came immediately in post # 2.
    Doesn’t get any better than that.
    Whether or not you agree with their interpretation of events is irrelevant.
    They asked the question based on what they needed clarification on.
    The OPs profile states they are a Fan...I took the time to check, did you? This doesn't mean that they can't also be a referee of course!
    You are stating that the pass looked wrong to him which is incorrect. They clearly state that the pass was backwards and it's what happened after the pass that they were unclear on the legality of.
    This question and thread has absolutely nothing to do with 'momentum pass' so don't complicate it by going further off topic....or is it OK for you to do so even while berating others for the same offence!

    It’s about TV rugby. I think it a minimum to watch the clip before answering the OP’s question.

    When it’s about an incident that happened in the sticks, answers will only be as accurate as my description is. But here that’s clearly not the case, you can watch the incident and make up your own mind. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Very flat! Backwards depending on which eye I've closed at the time...

    Initial movement is back. Physics makes it move into a lateral position afterwards. Play on.

    I've come in very late to this so apologies of this has been mentioned before.

    The laws at least USED to make it quite clear that a backwards pass that subsequently bounced forward of the passer was not a throw forward. The answer in #2 is correct.

    I'll get me coat!
