If you would have to kick the ball from anywhere on the line (the sides between the black squares in the map below), between the goal posts and over the bar, where on the line should it be best to take the kick in order to maximize the chance of succeeding to score a try? (Let's say that the vertical length of the pitch it 2a and the the length between the goalposts as 2b. Ignore the lengths given in the map below.)
I've thought about this and came up with a vague answer: wouldn't it be better if the person kicked the ball at an angle like 45 30 or 60? meaning that it would be easier to aim... But this seems to be too simple... Anyone have an idea?
