a snap, directly in line with the object
of the throw; then let the ball go, end
over end, revolving upon its shorter axis,
as in Fig. 1.
There is also a second straight-arm
pass, used for distance and elevation—
employed generally in passing in from
touch (side-lines), because it must be
passed over heads of forwards. The ball
should be held same as in the former pass,
the arm started at about an angle of 45°*
from side of the body, and the ball thrown
upon a curved line. In both these passes,
care should be taken not to violate the
rule against forward passing.
The underhand pass is used in passes
made by the quarter to the full back.
The ball is held as in the straight - arm
pass. The pass should be started from
about an angle of 45° to the rear of the
body, the arm passing by the body to the
front, describing an arc of a circle, letting
the ball roll off the tips of the fingers.
