  • Law 19 Definitions

    A player in touch may kick or knock the ball, but not hold it, provided it has not
    crossed the plane of the touchline. The plane of the touchline is the vertical space
    rising immediately above the touchline.

    Stransky got it wrong.

  • @Ben (Comment 9) : it is the same reason for way you can score a try whilst being touch in goal , tapping or kicking the ball is not seen as playing the ball

  • I like a law that allows the play to continue.

    It is much better than the other side of the law that rewards players for making a ball “in-touch”

  • Secondly…I really think that law that everyone was on about is pretty daft. I knew about it but never understood it. How can kicking or tapping the ball in any way NOT be construed as playing the ball?!?! Rules like this make for confusion…and in my mind that means it is counter productive. Make it simple all around. If ball or player touching ball touch the line or go over it, it is out…that would be they way I’d go. But then I’m not one of the lawmakers…
