    1. completes the running of a hoop in order and then hits a ball that, at the start of the stroke, was clear of the hoop on the non-playing side, the striker's ball scores a hoop point for itself and then makes a roquet under Law 16(b); or
    2. hits a ball that, at the start of the stroke, was clear of a hoop on the non-playing side, and then completes the running of the hoop in order, it is deemed that the contact occurs after the striker's ball scores the hoop point for itself so that it then makes a roquet under Law 16(b).

  3. BALLS COMING TO REST IN CONTACT In Laws 17(b)(2) and 17(b)(3), if the striker's ball comes to rest in contact with the relevant ball, a roquet is deemed to have been made on the relevant ball under Law 16(c)(2)(C).
