On the line is in the goal area. So if attacking team outs it on line try, defending team means gldo


In fairness, this first sentence provided a complete answer to the OP.

For anybody who is still confused, deprogramme the thought that says "on the line = over the line".

Instead, think, "the goal-line/try-line is (a small) part of the in-goal area".

It's not different!!!

Regardless of possession, the line is in goal.

The rule does not change...it stays the same...the line is in goal!

Okay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!;#!££!;£111one

Some of you seem to have lost your heads at a simple post.

I wasn't disputing the fact that that is clearly the rule, I was asking why it is different, but as some calm people have cleared the matter up, lock this before someone has a heart attack, jeez!

 

I suggest you read your own post you clearly state "I was under the impression that in RL on the line = over the line. "  You were clearly stating you thought the rule was different depending on which way the ball was being carried.

 

You also clearly didn't understand what the rule was despite your now "apparent" understanding.

Yes, I 'thought' it was different, I was wrong as has been pointed out to me by some of the calmer people on here. But hey, I'm not the only one who doesn't know every single rule. Just ask the thousands that boo when they can't have a quick 20m restart because they've passed it for the tap.

I'm sorry but even after it had been pointed out to you many times that you were wrong you persisted and then when the penny dropped you tried to change your stance.

 

I'm sorry for pointing it out, I'll try to behave myself in future.

If I thought I was right why would I post on here asking about the rule? I said I thought on = over, such as it is for touch, touch-in-goal, dead-in-goal etc so therefore TO ME that seemed to be a wrong decision so I came here for clarification, it seems I was wrong to do so.

Don't see how I contradict myself, if the attacking team grounds the ball on the try line, it is over the line and therefore is a try. So why if the defending team grounds the ball on the try line is it not 'over the line' and play on?

 

I think it was this post, #5, which has caused the confusion. You asked the question, it had been explained, but, you asked the same question again!!!

The first reply was a bunch of words in the wrong order which kind of make sense when looking back. The second post wasn't very helpful when wanting an explantion and the third reply was telling me I'm wrong, great answer. Griff (post 11) was the most helpful as he actually explained what I was asking, after I had to ask again.

On the try line means in goal, end of thread.
