Sitiveni Sivivatu classic try - Lions tour of NZ 2005

Sitiveni Sivivatu classic try  - Lions tour of NZ 2005

The first test of the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand in 2005 was overshadowed by the highly controversial and much documented spear tackle on Brian O'Driscoll . Just one minute into the game, the Lions lost their pivotal center and captain, which looked to have an effect on the outcome of the game, and perhaps even the tour.

Daniel Carter kicked two penalties before an Ali Williams try, and then shortly into the second half we saw this classic score that extended the lead even further.

Aaron Mauger broke the line and offloaded excellently to the supporting Tana Umaga, who then threw a fantastic long pass out to Sitiveni Sivivatu, who stepped inside to finish superbly.

Sivivatu, playing in only his second test for the All Blacks, went on to score again in the next test. His stepping off either foot was, and still is, incredibly potent with defenders back tracking.

As for the pass from Tana Umaga, it showed pure class, allowing his winger to run onto the ball in space. Great vision, and a wonderful try all round. The converted kick followed, taking the final score of the First Test to 21-3 to the home team.

Grrrr as soon as I saw this I knew there would be at least one mug who shouts forward. It's passed flat, but momentum takes it forward. When we people learn that rule?? It's about the ball coming out the hands, not where it ends up. The pass was good. Great try.

Too bad Sivivatu had to make a complete muppet out of himself by dropping the ball on Shane Williams' head... that took the gloss off completely...Still a great try, and a wonderful pass from Umaga.

Sharky, would you say the same about the french try in the world cup?That is such a great try. It was an awesome pass and it's tough calling those ones as like sharky said alot of it is momentum. Lovely bounce from the 12 who to be fair should have been tackled, terrible defending. and then you just can't stop them when they're running at you like that. And i'm an england fan

Sharky, that video posted below defeats your argument entirely. It shows that, even if the pass travels forward because of momentum, but the receiver is still behind the passer, it's not forward. Sivivatu, however, was in front of Umanga when he passed it, and in front of him when he caught it. Bad luck. Doesn't matter though, as in the long run it would only have been a forward pass if the ref had called it.

will66 October 16, 2008 4:52 pm

Stan, you're absolutely right. For anyone who can't be bothered to watch the video, basically it points out that pretty much every pass in rugby goes forward, because the passer is running forward and one would have to stop completely to enable the ball to actually go backwards.The result is that a pass can only be called forward if the ball goes forward in relation to the man who passes it. By very definition if the ball goes in front of the man passing, it cannot be momentum that carries it forward as the ball's momentum can only be as great as that of the passer. In other words one cannot rule a forward pass based upon the passage of the ball alone. One also has to bring to bear where the passer and catcher are and whether the ball travels in a straight line between them. If the catcher is behind the passer when the ball is passed and the ball travels in a straight line between them then it is not a forward pass.Anyway, the long and the short of it is that Umaga's pass was not forward. It was bloody brilliant and a great try, even if I am a Lions' supporter.

Let me explain this very simply, without commenting (yet) on whether or not the pass in the video was forward.From Law 12:DEFINITION - THROW FORWARDA throw forward occurs when a player throws or passes the ballforward. Forward means towards the opposing teams dead ball line.As you can see, there is NOTHING in the law book about momentum. That video is wrong at 4:56 when it says that the referee must "judge a forward pass purely on the passing action of the passer" - again, read the law definition above. Perhaps the laws were different when that video was made? The video looks pretty old.Now, regarding this particular occasion: it appears to me that Umaga released the ball about 5m inside the Lions 10-meter line, and Sivivatu caught it about 10m inside that same 10-meter line. By definition, that means the ball traveled towards the opposing team's deal ball line, which means that yes, this was a forward pass - in terms of the law. The overhead replay angle shows it best.Since the referee didn't call it, however, play goes on.CacetudoThe Daily Hype | Rugby

Common Sense!! October 16, 2008 10:18 pm

Hey Z Cacetudo,You said;"A throw forward occurs when a player throws or passes the ballforward. Forward means towards the opposing teams dead ball line."Umaga clearly throws the ball backwards. If it was the case that a pass has to be caught behind the spot it was thrown from then every freaking pass would be forward when you're running at speed.Think about it. If you jump out of the back of a speeding car you clearly wouldn't land at the spot you left the car. You'd land a few meters ahead of that spot because you're traveling at the same speed as the car.The same applies here. You're the rugby ball and the car is the running player.Umaga threw the ball backwards but because he and the ball were both going at the same speed the ball reaches Sivivatu a few meters ahead of where it left Umaga's hands. But because Umaga was stopped it looked as though the ball was thrown forward. If Umaga had continued running he'd still be ahead of Sivivatu and the ballIt's simple physics man.

@common sense!!:First, I didn't say it... the law book says it. Just so we're clear.Second, from what I can see in this video, the ball was passed forward - towards the opposing teams dead ball line. Have a look at the overhead replay, and check for 2 things: where Umaga was when he released the ball, and where Sivivatu was when he caught it. In my view it's clear that this was a forward pass.Third, I understand the physics perfectly. I actually studied this sort of thing in University as well. It's perfectly possible to be running forward at full speed and still throw the ball backwards - i.e., towards one's own goal line. It's also perfectly possible to jump out of the back of a moving car (to use your example) and land at a spot behind the point from which you jumped - you would just have to jump backwards at a velocity greater than the forward velocity of the car.Fourth, I also understand the illusion/lack thereof at work here. Illusion or not, Sivivatu catches the ball further towards the opposing team's dead ball line than the point at which it was released by Umaga (see my second point just above).@islestyle:I watched that Aussie refereeing video linked above in its entirety. As I mentioned in my first post, it appears to be quite old, and perhaps the laws were different when it was made. Did you actually read my first post? Did you notice that I quoted the narrator at 4:56? Do you think I made that up from whole cloth?I will ignore your personal attacks, except to say that I referee regularly, and still play occasionally.-----Again, please refer to law #12 - there is NOTHING about momentum in there, or about a player throwing the ball backwards relative to his forward motion.Let me add one more thing: I'm a neutral observer, neither Lions nor All Blacks supporter.CacetudoThe Daily Hype | Rugby

Z Cacetudo, "Sivivatu catches the ball further towards the opposing team's dead ball line than the point at which it was released by Umaga". This seems to be the main point which you base your argument on and if, as you suggest, the interpretation of the law has changed since the Australian video was made, do you now say that every time the ball is caught even slightly ahead of the point it was released by the passer, it constitutes a forward pass?. If so then the game (and probably every single game) as it is currently refereed is a sham. Is that also your position? Nothing personal here, Z Cacetudo, just curious.

jeroz October 17, 2008 4:06 am

if you see the direction of the ball, you would notice that it's a spiral pass to a backward direction, if you try to pass the ball forward with it pointing backward, you would find it to wobble in mid-air and would not go very far.just give it a try and you will see.also just to clear up the french pass situation. the passer was already stopped the moment before he passed the ball, therefore the momentum does not come into account, and it's just offloading into foward direction.

Bravo, Mr Anonymous, your assertion that 'northern hemisphere is shit' is clearly a well-thought out and intelligent philosophy. That you managed to drag your knuckles off the floor to type at all is a miracle.Back to the debate, irrespective of what the law says, this is not a forward pass. There are many things in the laws that if you stuck to them rigidly would ruin every game of rugby. The letter of the law at rucking for example would result in a penalty at every break down. When was the last time you saw a ruck where everyone was on their feet?The same thing applies to forward passes. The law exists to stop players passing to team mates who are in front of them. In the case the receiving player was at no stage in front of the passer, therefore play continued. If refs were so pedantic to stick to the very letter of the law, this would be a terrible game. I know because I regularly referee rugby games.

I'm a little sad that this great try is overshadowed by discussions about the pass tbh.I dont want to get technical at all, but do think maybe we're over analysing thing a tad. It was an OUTSTANDING pass, whether it drifted forward slightly or not, or even if by the letter of the law it was forward (which I still disagree with), it was an incredible pass and should be remembered for that. It's hardly WC Quarter final material.My two cents anyway. Great try.

Quality try and quality pass. Pause the video at 11 seconds as Mauger releases the offload to Umaga after breaking through. He releases it what appears to be JUST before the broken line on the field. Pause a moment later when Umaga catches the pass and look at where he is in relation to the broken line: on it or in front of it. I don't see anyone complaining about that pass being forward (because it obviously wasn't), nor was the one to Sivivatu.

Z Cacetudo October 17, 2008 10:58 pm

@robert:As far as the law is concerned, yes, any pass that is caught further "up" the field that the point from which it was released is considered to be a forward pass.However, in the interests of continuity, the referee should not be a sheriff/pedant and blow the whistle for every possible action that could be deemed an infringement. A little bit of latitude is appropriate, and the materiality of the action in question should be considered.Based on the 5m (in my estimation) difference in upfield position, and the winger being put into space, at speed and within the opposing team's half, I would argue that the attacking team gained a material advantage from the forward pass. In this case, I would blow the whistle.@will66:First, please see the points above. Several of them would apply to your comment.Second, if we're agreed that the ball was received further upfield than the point from which it was passed, then according to law this is indeed a forward pass.Third, I totally agree with your point that the referee should not interpret the lawbook strictly. Doing so would result in a match that would be no fun to play and less to watch.Fourth, while the receiver wasn't in front of the passer when the pass was initiated, he certainly was in front of that same point when he caught the pass. As I've already shown, there's no mention of momentum (or any similar word/concept) anywhere in Law 12. Here's the link to the Law 12 PDF at the IRB site.Fifth, if you look at the positioning of the referee at the time of the pass, he was trailing play and on the right side of the passer, who passed left. I know from experience (and you probably do too since you ref) that this is one of the most difficult angles from which to judge whether or not a pass went forward. I'm not criticizing Mr. Jutge - we of course have the benefit of hindsight. Keep in mind that he may not have been able to tell whether or not it was forward, in which case he did the absolutely correct thing in playing on.-----Having said all of that... yes, this was a great demonstration of skill all around - especially the finishing by Sivivatu - and entertaining to watch.CacetudoThe Daily Hype | Rugby

Z Cacetudo, thanks for your reply. I think we will have to agree to disagree on this. As far as law 12 goes .. I don't accept that those words (no matter how often you repeat them) intended that throwing the ball sideways as you move ahead equates with throwing it towards the dead ball line, but that's what you're saying because that forward drift is inevitable. Your interpretation of the law is obviously different to that of the referees currently employed in international and other matches. And thank goodness for that. I believe that the ref and touch judge in this case did not call it forward for the same reason they didn't on many other similar passes shown on this site .. because they do not consider them to be forward. Either they are correct in this, which I believe, or they agree with your interpretation but are chronically unable to make the "correct" call time after time no matter how well positioned they are. I tend to support the IRB referees on this one.

Well what can I say?

Great bust up the middle by Mauger (poor tackle by Jones)

Great support line by Umaga and great off-load

Great acceleration by Umaga to exploit the break.

Great vision to see Sivivatu.

Great step and finish.

Still a forward pass. You guys keep going on about this momentum thing and frankly it's all rubbish. I've watched the 80s Aussie video, I've heard the argument. The fact remains, if the ball travels in the air towards the opposition dead ball line, it's a forward pass. It makes it extremely hard to pass backwards at speed but therein lies half of the skill.

I don't want to sound sour, the All Blacks were as good a side in 2005 as I can remember and the Lions were half-cooked. The scorelines didn't flatter the ABs. Still, the pass went forward.
