      Hey, do we still have some umpires on this forum? Got a question (it been so long since I’ve umpired and the grey matter is forgetting things)

      In the Lightning v Fever game, Steph Wood shot a 2 pointer when she hadn’t appeared to land fully in the circle. I rewound to watch but it was still a little obscured but appeared she landed with one foot in the circle, one out, then stepped that second foot into the circle and shot a 2 pointer.

      I thought this wasn’t allowed, and Courtney Bruce thought so too, briefly trying to point out to the umpire before thinking better of it and getting on with the game.

      Thoughts?

        I’m an umpire. I’m not sure exactly on the super shot rule in regards to foot placement, but in regular games if your grounded foot lands in the shooting circle first, you can then move your non grounded foot in to be completely in to shoot a goal.
        I remember seeing Courtney’s motion to complain at the part you’re talking about (there are always so many) but didn’t realise what she was pointing at because it looked clean to me

          Thanks @sarahk90 for clarification and interesting you also noted Courtney’s issue ?

          I was wondering if the super shot rule was slightly different because when it came in the ruling was stated the player had to land completely and only in the 2point zone, not grounded foot in the 2pt zone and being able to move the non-grounded foot from the 1pt zone.

            I am absolutely not an umpire but I’m pretty sure that is still the rule for the super shot- a few rounds ago when Dwyer’s wasn’t counted, this was the ruling behind it. Although the umpires still make mistakes about super shots (as is only human)- I remember in 2021 both of ATN’s feet were firmly over the line and it was still a 2.

                Is there an NS team of the week for round 7? There would be some controversial positions!

                  For some reason, :unsure: I don’t think we did one.
