Unbelievable! Maybe there was a strong wind blowing.
I've seen that sort of thing in union (due to their footballs being better shaped for kicking) but never in league.
pffft seen bigger lol
Interesting, is it a penalty in front to the other team? Or only if it is on the full?
I could do that. I just choose not to. :s
Meh...... Matai's kick-offs go 200m.
I was watching that game. Yes there was a wind and the ball probably travelled 70 in the air but got a beautiful bounce and just kept rolling until it went over the dead ball line. fantastic.
I reckon it would be a goal line drop out at the other end. The same as if a kick off goes dead (not on the full).
Surprising that the defender fielded it only to concede a goal line drop out. Had he let it run dead they would have had a 20-metre restart.
Don't think so mate. It was a kick from a re-start in play, not a kick in general play. Therefor the re-start would have been a goal line dropout regardless of whether he touched it or not (I think ).
You're right. I stand corrected.
It would have taken Orford 4 kicks to make the 110m lol
You're being generous........
If the ball had gone over deadball line without being touched it is an optional 20m re-start - same as any other time the ball is kicked over an opponent's deadball line in general play except from a kickoff or penalty.
The rule that says it's a dropout if the ball goes dead only includes kick offs from halfway, not 20m or goal line drop outs.
You might want to read that rule again.
The rule you quoted is for a 20m tap (optional kick from the centre of the 20m line)
Had the ball gone dead with no touch it would be a goal line drop out.
We shall have to agree to disagree then.
Have often thought that in dry conditions you could get a toe punt drop kick that would go 100m on the fly.
Would be risky if you didn't hit it but it would be doable.
