The off feet clear out at the ruck is a pet peeve of mine. Players launching themselves like an Exocet into the ruck. Oh but they cleared out successfully so thatís alright.
Doesnít look like that is going to be challenged.


Hope you don't mind a Sarries interloper on this subject. This bugs me no end, in terms of on field behaviour it has to class as one of the worst. If you watch the Nic White try for Ex this weekend in the ruck before last two Ex players come flying in off their feet, should have been one of the easiest penalties the ref could (should?) have given. At around 0:25 in this video []

I haven't looked at the video, but I'll guess Jonny Hill was one of those diving straight off his feet. He does it at 90% of the rucks he gets involved in.
Players really should be forced to make an effort to stay on their feet when entering a ruck.
