World Rugby Clarification: Kicking the Ball Out of a Players Hands

World Rugby has issued another clarification.  This addresses kicking the ball out of the hands of another player.  That has always been specifically prohibited when a player is attempting to touch the ball down for a try, but it was not addressed for more general situations.  This clarification makes it clear – that action is illegal and dangerous and should be penalized. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mONaLz6Ry4&feature=youtu.be
