    ill see if I remember next game
    Zebra, attacking team is the opposition to the team in whose half you are playing, not the team in possession.

    Note that the "Team Moving Forward" does not apply if you stop for an injury (its the team in possession); but it does apply if you stop for "Any Other Reason".

    So if the 11 intercepts a pass on his own 22m line and breaks through with 80m to go, he is still the defending team, in possession and moving forward

    Yes for the few seconds until he crosses the half way line.

    Seems so, in possession and moving forward, but not 'attacking' ;-)

    And if the 3 intercepts a pass on his own 22m line and breaks through with 80m to go, he is still the defending team, in possession and moving forward for the few minutes until he crosses the half-way line (or drops the ball in shock).

    even for a 3 a few minutes to traverse maybe 28 metres at most is slow going. One presumes the uver speedy winger only 35m maximum may have caught him by then!

    The winger was hanging off the 3 slowing their progress down...

    Here's a good example of the Law Book using the word "attacking" incorrectly (or not as per the definition, anyway)

    12.11Apart from at a kick-off or restart kick, if the ball is played or taken into in-goal by an attacking player and is made dead by an opponent, play is restarted with a 22-metre drop-out
    .

    The kick could have been from his own half, when he would have been a defending player

    I would say this is a better definition of attacking. An assumption you can only be attacking in the opposition half is just ridiculous.
