Forum member Jeff J. from AZ identified something seemingly wrong with the new reading of 4-41-7: "The tap or try for field goal starts when the player's hand(s) touches the ball." (Used to say, "The tap starts when the player's hand(s) touches the ball.")
This new wording seems to conflict with 4-41-3 which remains unchanged, "The try starts when the player begins the motion which habitually precedes the release of the ball".
Can anyone make some sense out of the change to 4-41-7? Seems like they just got carried away with the other insertions of the word "field" before goal and changed this when they shouldn't have.
