    [Maul] Knees on the ground !!!

    I am now slightly confused, when a maul was formed no matter if the ball carrier went to ground the other players had no obligation to release the ball or the ball carrier, so if a referee calls maul how can he then ask for the other players to release the ball carrier.

    [Law] Ball bounces off team mates head !!!

    The ball is passed from the 10 to 12, 12 is not looking, ball bounces off 12's head and the 10 receives the ball back, I guess no knock-on but is 10 not off-side. The ball only hits the 12 on the head, no body else involved and does not bounce off the ground. Referee says "No Knock-on off the head".

    Open hand hand-off ?

    May a player hand-off a player in the face . I am not talking about a slap in the face but a genuine hand-off, legal or not, (I can understand that the hand must be flat and not gouging out eyes).
