    But outside camera'd rugby a much faster reaction time is prudent IMO.

    PS.... I can see problems if ' immediately' in law = 5s
    I don't think all of the "add-ons" available in CJ's or NO's games have anything to do with how they ref this particular phase.
    IMO, they are doing as per Marauder's comment that I highlighted in my previous post.
    "If he can immediately place it or release it such that it can either be retrieved by the SH or played with the feet in the maul then ......".
    I think that is the best way to referee it. Ball trapped/wrapped up/not moving etc = not immediately available. Ball immediately moving back being made available = play on.
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    What about ball trying to be moved back and should become available quite soon ish ? How long do you observe, I'm not saying the CJ & NO allow this because of the add one's ........ I'm saying I wouldn't because of the absence of these supports in my matches.

    We all saw Healy stamp on Dan Coles leg when the maul collapsed & Cole wouldn't voluntarily relinquish his maul grasp. Delays probably lead to safety & foul play risks, which is probably why Law is worded so clinically.
