    Default Law 14.7 & 21.7

    Is my sensitivity meter set too high? For me the try scorer makes a secondary move when bending his knees up to get closer to the GL. As this occurs as one might describe 'during the tackle', are other Community Referees happy with it? I don't see this as his original momentum.

    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    It's all one motion, and the argument could be made that he still had momentum carrying him forward. If I saw this in person, I'd award the try.

    The Ball carrier must act "immediately" . For me he does. Try.

    Looks good to me too - all one movement, no sense of stopping and starting. Try.

    I'm with chbg. I see him using his left arm to propel himself illegally
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I think chbg was asking about the decision to make in the community game, in real time.

    As opposed to as a TMO in the pro game

    Which may / may not have a different answer

    After his knee hits the ground (tackle completed) he is too far away to reach out and score. I see a deliberate effort to move his body nearer to the goal line. I do not see it as momentum.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.
