    Default dropping the jumper on top of a maul

    From the weekend... details are hazy now so maybe someone can recall?

    There was a lineout where the throw was taken low to a standing #2 (might have been to Itoje?). the fdefending pod had gone up and it looked like the lifters abandoned the jumper to defnd the driving maul - the maul passed under the jumper still in the air who unceroniously fell over the maul and rolled off.

    So is that

    * dropping your own player (ISTR thats a PK?)
    * mauling team making contactb wi8th a player in the air
    * jumping player dangerous play fopr landing on top of the maul - may even have been offisde at that juncture?

    I thought not returning your own player to ground safely was a FK but I may be wrong. I might look it up later.

    So in the match of fuzzy memory, it would have been FK ADV?

    There is an offence of "throwing across the line" which essentially is offside and a Penalty Kick.
    It's one we were advised abut last season that premiership referees would be using more often.

    PG perhaps? This was the Eng/Ire match

    It was Eng/Ire, I think Beirne was "launched" over the top of Itoje; this was in part due to England getting to ground and driving while he was still at the peak of the jump, though.

    At the time I thought FK advantage for not returning the player to the ground, then FK advantage or PT for collapsing the maul over the line. As a grassroots ref I may have stopped the match to check the player was OK, depending on my view of the situation - I couldn't see clearly but he looked to come down hard.

    That wouldn't be a good call.

    There were a number of short, to the front lines out at the weekend that clearly were thrown straight at the standing first receiver but totally ignored by the ARs
