Actually it occurs to me that another odd thing happened in this game. One of the team was driving toward the line, in a proper ‘grown-up’ pick and drive way. One of the attackers was stopped just short of the line, I called ‘short’ and the lad pushed it back, whilst his mates protected the ball, all legal.
However as he pushed the ball back, he got shoved forward, over the line, so there was this odd sight of the player over the try line holding the ball, in the field of play. The tryline literally ran under his outstretched arms.
So I am looking at this odd sight whilst the scrum half is shouting orders at his team-mates to assemble the next carrying pod. Then it occurs to him, he looks at the ball, the tryline, looks up at me, I shrug, he lifts the ball a few inches forward and the try is awarded.
