Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

Think that was NZ rugby league - same/very similar rules apply. But saying that he deliberately passed/chucked the ball over his head rather than Carlin "knocking" it. I agree it should have been a try.

22.1 (b) is one way of scoring, another is 22.1 (a) in that case "No downward pressure is required"

You might want to "Revise your laws mate"...

I agree with your point about pressure I thought that had been removed years ago too. Looks like it's back in again according to TyS.

You don't actually need any control of the ball to score a try though. The IRB seem to have dumbed down the laws on their site so I can't find the wording.
But if you think about it, you could score a try from my kick with no control over the ball at all, you just need to touch the ball when it's on the ground over the try line. You can (or at least could several years ago when I last read the laws) even be off the pitch when you touch it down. Not sure if that's still the case as I'm no longer quick enough to worry about scoring that sort of try.

Elvis Vermeulen yellow carded for huge hit on Zee Ngwenya

If its "perfect timing" why would you give a penalty?
