    Well the team that wins the ball really, you can't be in a position to receive a ball that the opposition jumper has under control.

    I suspect any team with more than a soupcon of nous is alreday/has already worked on not slipping the ball post catch and land until sure oppo contact is made. For several years now youd be foolish to do so given the common knowledge of "not enganging immediately".

    Except you see it regularly on TV and as such, referees in the weeds get pressure to let it go in favour of a flowing match.

    all i can say then is if in TV rugby the ball is slipped with no contact made, then contact is made and a PK not awarded then this is just TV rugby whistling, and like so much else at that level it stuffs grass roots refs who blow the laws as written etc etc
