Clip 2 - 15 May 2019 - Law 11

Early in the second half, with the score 12-10 to the Crusaders, Joshua Stander of the Stormers kicks downfield. Just inside his half, Sevu Reece of the Crusaders catches the ball and passes to David Havili. 

Havili runs ahead and is stopped and held upright by two Stormers, Pieter-Steph du Toit and Cobus Wiese. George Bower of the Crusaders joins in but the referee calls "Tackle!” Havili is released and the ball comes back to Bryn Hall.

The Crusaders go left as Hall passes to Ethan Blackadder who passes to Richie Mo'unga. Mo'unga holds his pass till Codie Taylor is through a gap. He passes to the hooker who charges downfield. Confronted by Damian Willemse (15), Taylor passes to Braydon Ennor who races down the left and scores. Mo'unga converts.

The interesting pass to look at is Mo'unga's to Taylor.

Are Mo'unga's arms and hands parallel to the goal-lines or inclined towards the Crusaders' goal-line or are they more inclined towards the Stormers' goal-line?

If the arms and hands are across the parallel line and inclined towards the Stormers' goal-line, the pass is forward, but undetected. advert
