Cheating in rugby

Hi everyone, I'm currently doing a masters degree in Sport & Exercise psychology and my thesis topic is perceptions of cheating in rugby from fans and players perspectives, If you have a spare ten minutes to fill in a questionnaire it would be greatly appreciated, the link is below if you have time. Likewise if you know any who could complete it feel free to share it with them. Thanks.

CookiePROP - Iíve completed the survey but find it a bit ambiguous. Is the cheating in scenario 3 the dropping of the maul or the shoeing he got for doing it ? In the last one it doesnít really explain if it was a deliberate tackle in the air or a genuine attempt at the ball.

Just thought that it might be my antiquated views that think that there isnít anything wrong with anything in scenario 3.
