Whilst on hol­i­day in Corn­wall we took a ferry to the Isles of Scilly and while on board we met the guys from Cor­nish Pi­rates. They were su­perb and took time out to pose for pho­tos (be­low) with my­self and my son, even though I was wear­ing my Leinster shirt! Thank you to them and best of luck for the sea­son. It is time to re­view the for­ward pass law. Last sea­son was rid­dled with them and yet passes were al­lowed to stand, re­sult­ing in scores. It is ridicu­lous for the of­fi­cials to have to con­sider rel­a­tive ve­loc­ity and the po­si­tion of the hands/arms dur­ing the ex­e­cu­tion of the pass.

It should be sim­ple: if the ball is caught by the re­ceiver in front of the passer, it’s a for­ward pass. If it touches the ground in front of the passer, it’s a knock-on.
