langpark Posted July 4, 2021 Share Posted July 4, 2021 (edited) As someone who refereed (still does) at amateur level and in areas where many were new to the game, I was often asked this very question. I always told them to avoid contact with the face. That is not to say I penalised players if they made contact with the face, but all too often the hand off, did become more of a 'slapping' action, which I would penalise. I think to remove all doubt and have a clear, consistent rule, then this should be it. No contact with the face or throat.
