    Yeah, that happens a lot, I have a couple of tall lads with Itoje-esque arms in the U13s I coach, they worked our real quick how to wrap up a maul for 5 seconds. I personally think the time limit doesn't help, but I do as am told on the coaching front!

    Surely, if there is forward momentum at the creation of the maul, you do not stat the count until " forward momentum is lost". So, Calling "maul, 5-4-3-2-1-Turnover" is not necessarily correct? Or am I missing something.
    Ah, yes hadn't spotted that, was distracted with the verbal countdown - U14 they can keep marching forward *then* they get 5 seconds, younger age groups it's a straight 5 seconds

    As is the case with any situation at the younger age groups, it is likely to be a mess. it serves no purpose to continue any longer than the situation demands, hence the tighter restrictions and the more immediate intervention. Helps keep the game moving considering the reduced game time.

    My mistake for not stating that each maul was stationary.

    Thanks. Makes sense now. I do a bit of RFU age group stuff and was a little confused.
