Did anyone see Hastings forwa4d pass for Glasgow last night for the try that gave them the bonus try point.  He passed it about a metre outside the 22 and the winger caught it about 2 to 3 metres inside the 22, Sam Davies challenged it but TMO stated that the ball went backwards from Hastings - a very strange call, unless the TMO was looking at the final pass, which was level.  
When it was given, even Hastings looked amused.

As said earlier, there is a tmo to pick up on anything missed and a citing procedure (for what its worth) to punish any serious offences.
Just don't see the benefits of it. A captain is always going to put in some sort of challenge at the end of close games and turn an exciting finish into a farce.
Indeed 👍 Scrap it I say.

Although this may sound counter-intuitive, I think the officials were right in this case. For instance, if the passer of the ball was moving toward the Dragons line at say 6 m/s when passing the ball, and the receiver took the pass 1s later, the ball would have moved forward 6m in flight because it already had a forward component of 6m/s. This would be true even if the ball was released in a legal, lateral direction (or even slightly backward towards the receiver (and the touchline)

I always thought that if the ball ended up closer to the try line than the point from where it left the passer's hands then it is deemed a forward pass. Simple as that. 
Keep the faith

If the passer is stationary that's certainly true, but if the passer is moving forward then the passed ball can be directed laterally and legally but also have a forward component due to the passer's forward motion.

Yeah, IRB have some videos of a bloke running forward and throwing a ball backwards over his head when he hits a line.

He is undeniably throwing backwards but the ball lands in front of the line: momentum.

It is a good job that Brian McNeice is not clued up on his relativistic physics otherwise Javan would have been red carded for head butting the Munster player's shoulder.Embarrassed

Unless it’s a Scarlets player where it would be a perfectly fine pass.

Dan McFarland's post match comments said exactly that. He alleged that Javan led with his head. Can't find the quote now.
