Would like to agree with you but unfortunately when he put his arm around Val's waist after first trying to reach for the ball he was playing the man .I think so too. I reckon he had parallax error with the ball trajectory and Val’s. I don’t think he was trying to play the man.
Bunker video shown by Annesley on Monday was pretty clear & only decision the bunker had to make was penalty try - Yes or No.
It was because of the ball's initially trajectory across the ground ( until it hit Tracey on head ) that answer was No.
