This law is pie in sky

The Rugby Paper - - Views -

AERIAL chal­lenges are be­com­ing a headache for match of­fi­cials be­cause the law at the mo­ment is an ass. How can one player be any more cul­pa­ble than an­other player in an aerial con­test when both have their eyes fixed on the ball?

It is a non­sense to al­lo­cate blame on the ba­sis that one player launches him­self sky­wards a nanosec­ond ear­lier than an­other and then falls awkwardly. Why are they any less guilty of be­ing reck­less than the other player go­ing for the ball in good faith?
