    I have been raising this point for a few years and the general response I get is ‘we’ve got more important things to look at and consider’.

    Particularly when changing positions (18.17a) and peeling (to receive the ball, 18.28) are permitted; it is not as though every change in the straight lines is liable to penalty.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    If they complied wuth 18.17a and 18.28 there’d be no priblem. What we are seeing a lot of is jumping out and not changing place. Partial peeling but not continuing to move etc, and generally a pod of players waiting for the lifting pod to let the catcher come down.

    My point is that it is simpler to penalise when it is easy to discriminate between actions. It is not possible to tell whether a step out of the line is permitted or not as that step is made. It is the whole action that has to be considered, thus requiring attention, which many referees assess to be more profitably applied elsewhere.
