Here’s an absolutely STUNNING piece explaining the forward pass.
It’s on Rugby365 and I think that you should go there to read it. Click here. Simply put, it’s just too good to repost here, thus robbing them of a hit. You see, I do have a conscience.
Basically, the upshot is this… look at where the recipient of the pass is realtive to the passer at the exact moment the ball leaves the passers hands. Anything else is bound be inaccurate, unless you’re completely stationary relative to both the passer and the receiver. This is, of course, impossible unless both are moving at exactly the same speed. I guess it means only props are exmept from throwing forward passes…Tweet
