Defending team awarded a drop-out from own tryline when attacking player is held up over the line. The current law is to award an attacking scrum five metres out.

How can you be held up if you have been tackled at, or below the waist?


Because you twisted in the tackle and landed on your back, or someone got underneath you. Not massively different from today.
