The forward pass in league i would see as a sort of joker card to create a greater intensity at end of game

So basically bring back Eddie waring from beyond the grave?

Another idea. Instead of a forward pass why not a perfectly timed backwards pass to a guy running a great line. But he gets caught but offloads to a support player backing him up who skins three defenders? Oh yeah. That sounds rubbish *self swear filter*

So why can't you just kick it to him.

Hang just thought of something.......think 'HANDBALL' the not too popular sport in UK,how an incisive pass can split a defence and leave the attacking player an open chance.A kick is much more anticipated than a pass forward the pass un locks a defence ,Its hypothetical anyway and difficult to convey an idea without an actual visual example or reference point.

Would the size of the ball have be changed?

lol was thinking exactly this yes dont think an RL ball would be conducive to a bullet pass forward.An AF style ball or smaller RL ball

Definitely no grid iron passes in the field of play - but I've long thought that a football style throw-in ( forward / backwards long / short whatever ) to replace the scrum for most ball out of play situations. Lot of variety in the restart then ( but def not a line-out!)

 

Believe it or not that has been tried.
