The Queensland Reds pack were left red-faced after some clever maul defence went wrong against the Lions in Super Rugby on Saturday.

The Lions had an attacking line out five metres from the Reds’ try line in the final play of the first half at Ellis Park when they set up a driving maul.

The Reds pack then made the decision not to compete for the line out and deliberately not touch the Loins pack in the hopes of winning a penalty for obstruction.

This allowed the hosts to roll over the try line unopposed and score a try, which referee Jaco Peyper deemed legal because one member of the Reds pack touched a Lions player meaning the maul had formed.

 

This try helped the hosts to a 27-20 win in round two of Super Rugby. Full match highlights are available below:

    Yeh so that's not the reason the try stood. It was permitted because the Lions kept the ball at the front of the maul, therefore no obstruction. It wasn't a maul, it was simply a ball carrier being driven on. If the ball had gone to the back of the maul then it would have been a penalty for obstruction. Clever play by the Lions to react to the situation.
