    I'm also guessing the the 3 players can bind once the ball has been received. Meaning all the attackers need to do is stay very close and bind (before contact), just after the ball is received. Making the Law change moot as we'll have the same result... 3 players (or more) bound together charging through to the defensive line.

    Or am I missing something.
    I think the point of the variation is to forbid pre-binding before contact, not before the ball carrier receives the ball. Or have I missed something?

    Am I correct that if a player from the same team is bound to the ball carrier and an opposing player binds above the waist - that immediately forms a maul? But if they grasp below the waist and try to bring them down that is a tackle?

    Also if you are bound to the ball carrier in open play and not offside, but an opposing player is running on a line that would intercept the ball carrier were it not for the precence of the bound player - is the bound player obstructing the tackle?

    Ah, I've just went onto the WR site. I was reading from a 2nd hand source that specified prior to receiving the ball.

    Indeed 'Defending Team' is defined, but 'Defender' isn't, though they look similar they mean different things. The English language is tricky like that. Defense/Defence is another one. You could show more deference and be less defensive.

    I don't think in practice you'd call a maul immediately, you'd let a dynamic situation breath for a few seconds to see if it could be a tackle.

    I think the latched player is entitled to the space and wouldn't be obstructing unless they changed their line to make contact with a potential tackler.

    Interesting question posed in another forum:

    Does the 50/22 law apply to kickoffs/restart kicks that go indirectly into touch inside the 22?

    I see no reason why not. They only infringe if they go directly into touch; indirectly into touch means that they have been playable by the opposition. No such exception to the 50:22 has been expressed.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Well, I dunno

    You are saying that a defender is different from being a member of the defending team?

    That's a subtlety that def escapes me !

    Have to assume so, we were discussing it at training tonight (Level 6/7 standard players) and no one could realistically see how you’d be hitting the lower legs with a legitimate clear out, you had to be in at the side, or maybe driving across in such a way that’s going to paint a similar picture

    defender = member of the team not in possession? Not officially defined but a reasonable understanding
