Center situation in women water polo
Exclusion fouls are major fouls and an important decision and advantage to the opposite team. That is why referees should apply this rule within the spirit of the game and advantage.
Many exclusion fouls are awarded automatically. When referees award exclusion fouls they MUST see a clear intention of the attacker’s action, to score a goal, move with the ball and on the other hand a clear intention of the defender to stop this action, prevent a goal or pass. Attacking player must go on the ball, not of the ball. Exclusion fouls must be avoided when the foul has no influence on the game. Sometimes an ordinary foul instead of an exclusion foul (centre-forward position) is a better decision. With an ordinary foul, the attacking team remains in possession of the ball. We cannot punish a defender if they show a clear intention to get to the ball (not the attacker). Exclusion foul MUST have clear influence on the game. Referee must see all fouls, but award the ones important for the game.
