First post so we'll see how it goes...

Just looking for some insight from my learned colleagues regarding actions I've noticed at the ruck...

i.e., ball won and at the back of the ruck, defending player then stepping over or through the ruck to dislodge the ball (kick out of the ruck)...it seems to me a considerably negative action that is/has been dealt with varying degree (penalty to play on)...my thoughts are that this obviously needs to be managed closely on the field, but failure of such then this action is bordering on cynical and thus liable to greater penalty....your thoughts

I've no doubt this has been covered in the past, but unable to find in my search of the site...so if the membership would indulge me I would be appreciative...
