    I see your point regarding the bat back.
    I think a tip on is a pass and a bat back isn’t.

    Another change of rules on the run, picking up a player and carrying him over sideline is now ok.

    I love it how the refs tell players that they can't challenge certain decisions which are challengable

    It’s ok if that player’s initials are J.L. Otherwise it’s still a penalty.

    I like how coaches/players/commentators make rules up on the run like you don't have to play the ball with the foot even though the code made a point of insisting that is indeed a rule 2 years ago.
