In contact sports for example Rugby League, the Act of passing the football when you are too scared to take the hit up on your own, Instead passing the football late to a team mate putting them in a position where they will get hit hard by the opposition, potentially putting them into hospital .
Ryan has just thrown a real late ball, He should have taken the hit himself, What a hospital ball. Classic Ryan.
