The guy he hit in the face (??) is actually in a crouch. Toby is not looking, and would have really expected that if he got him anywhere, it would have been in the chest, … which, had the guy not taken a foot off his own height, it would have been. People saying it would be OK if it had been a marking contest, but NOT because it was a HB receive?? WTF?
Taking possession of a high ball and putting a foot out to protect your space is the same regardless of if it was delivered to you by hand or foot . That contention is 100% genuine BS for mine.
What next?? You cant put a foot out to gain a height/lift advantage off an opponent in a Ruck contest?? Or when going for a punch/spoil/tap??Happens all the time, it doesn’t need to be a marking attempt to put the leg/foot out.
