Are the players not offside in that maul set up, they are both in front of the catcher?
DAN BRINKS USA
If both lifters step in front of the jumper, this would be considered an infraction.
Lionel Langenhoven South Africa
very good its importend to know your role in a successfull maul great video
Shayne Oldfield USA
What about arm positions on lifters. Rather than arms on the back of the jumper, on the drive, arms are instead bound to the jumpers front?

I really enjoyed this footage, very helpful.

I have the same concern… refs have become quite strict on lifters blocking defenders and as soon as it even seems like their ahead of the jumper, they can be pinned. I am also concerned about using the outside arm to bind on the jumper, a clever defender can worm his way in there… Enjoyed the basic setup and simple communication though.
Rich Avery England
Part one and two very clear will use this tonight. My only concern is,as mentioned in other posts, the idea of lifters blocking in front of jumper. I guess if the impression given is that they are still bound and lifter is still in air with the ball then they are just planting their feet. Albeit in a blocking position but as part of the lift. Thanks for this though.
Carter Croft England
Excellent enjoyed he body position of the lifters. Carter Croft

Defenders cannot be blocked from attacking the jumper once he has landed. Some refs may penalise if the lifters bind across jumpers backand are to forward of him, so as to block defenders.

Hi Keri—John, we have discussed the setup with NZ and UK referees. As long as the jumper comes straight down and the ball is not passed back the players are legally permitted to bind in the prescribed manner.
Keri-John Lovell England
Quick question, aren’t the props dangerously close to being offside and causing obstruction? Referee’s interpretation?
