Nigel Owens makes an interesting call on this no-contesty lineout that you should know about


As of January 2016 World Rugby in the Southern Hemisphere and June 1st in the NH, referees will be penalizing for long arm transfers to the back of a maul, specifically at a lineout. According to World Rugby: "Long placements are to be avoided as they often lead to obstruction and invite attacking players to join in front of the ball. In the future this will be PENALISED"
