Watching this - line out which led to the Blues first try. Was the ball handed back befor the catcher hit the ground?

Not watching it. Can you explain a bit more?

Sorry, having started watching it, I was then called away.

Blues kicked a PK for the corner. Ball thrown towards the back of the line, catcher goes very high and proto-maul forms while he's in the air. He passes the ball back (IMHO) before reaching the ground, the maul rumbles toward the line and a player spins off the maul to score.

It's here (for UK watchers), line out starts at 13:10.

For me, PK for obstruction, or (under the directive) Connacht scrum for accidental offside. No try. It's one of Ian's betes noirs.

Is that Clear and Obvious? I have to say I was not impressed by the ref. A lot of going off the feet ignored.

Well, it caught my eye at first run through at full speed, so I'd say C&O enough.
