    And this is that other code, but still good...

    I was thinking of the first of these too - and we are saying this is ok because he taps to himself, then they run then he kicks, right?

    But surely a chip in the air to himself is no difference than a tap along the ground to himself?

    the players are moving before his in-goal chip, which is on a par to a pass to a player. The ball is live - as it would be if he had tapped it along the ground.

    Fair point about the ball at the back of a ruck.

    Interesting point. How is it any different from a ruck near the try line where attackers run full pelt toward the try and have the ball popped from the base of the ruck??
    I think the reasons would be
    1 defenders are much closer
    2 being open it's more difficult for the attackers to time and execute, in reality the charger is not going to be going so fast.

    Multiple players running towards the in-goal before the kick was made?

    The danger in a cavalry charge in the static defender trying to tackle a player who has built up a head of steam. In the baa-baas move, there is no pop-pass so no tackle to be made.

    Absolutely Ian! But the referee wouldn't know that until the moment the ball left the boot for the in-goal reverse kick. Up until that juncture he could have been about to make a pop pass to a runner. which wold bring about a collission very quickly given the shorter (5m) distance involved.

    really? we tend to see "floppers" from ruck pop passes on the whole - but we do certainly do see charging rhino type pop passes at rucks.

    I'd say the Baabas start moving AFTER the tap kick is done. Therefore, legal.
    Sorry about my English, as it isn't my mother tonge.

    when I read the OP, it did not strike me that you were looking for something along the lines of a charge, rather something like the classic Wall set piece ; maybe what you need.
