The ball in a maul may be moved backwards hand-to-hand. A player is not allowed to move/slide to the back of the maul when that player is in possession of the ball, AND, players are not allowed to join/bind ahead of the ball carrier.
Please see below for an example of a player sliding back.
THIS IS A PENALTY KICK for OBSTRUCTION. It is not a non-material infringement to be managed, it is a PENALTY KICK!
