    I don't understand this Law -- where is this "space between the flanker and the number eight"

    I've been refereeing for years and can safely say I've never seen a scrum that looked as pretty as that image! !

    Are you serious?

    Ball at red 8's feet.
    Crosshatch area out of bounds.
    Can yellow 9 go as far as B, or only A?

    B is the offside line
    does everyone agree about the cross hatch?

    kind of. The flanker will normally put his legs further back and angle his bum out to create the "no go" area.
    msf..
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Well, for the sake of pedantry, is that B-line the central
    line through the ball or the fore-most ( not hind-most) edge of the ball ?
    A ball can be 30 cm long ! Is the opposing 9 allowed to have any part of his feet within that 30cm or behind that 30cm band ?

    I am reminded of a very good ref's pre-match chat when he answered that "when do you consider the ball out, Sir?" question with something like "When the entire circumference of the ball is clear of the entire length of the hind-most foot. Or lifted".

    Not when I'm referring anyway!

    I remember once being challenged by a 9 after a game as to why I was insisting he stay so far back from the OS line at the scrum.
    I was unclear what he was referring to and he explained that I was telling him to stay 2 feet behind the all.

    The penny dropped with me and I remembered saying to him " Two feet behind the ball 9" as he was coming up to pressure the other 9.

    I now use the expression " Both feet"
