The most effective pass is the torpedo pass. Normally from the scrum half (as its their best weapon ) to the outside half from a scrum or set piece. The ball is held in both hands with the points of the ball in line with the direction to be thrown. The throw is made across the body of the ball carrier (left to right or right to left) with the most dominant hand being at the rear of the ball. As the ball leaves the hand in a torpedo action the player will spin the ball on this axis. This is reported to cut down on wind resistance and allow the ball to travel further

One of the best practitioner of this was Gareth Edwards former Wales Scrum half

Practice actually throwing a real tennis ball. To add to the muscle development wet the ball slightly and it becomes slightly heavier thus affording more resistance.

How long do tennis balls last?

The average lifespan of a tennis ball is typically around 2 to 3 weeks of regular use on court. Factors such as playing surface, frequency of use, and storage conditions can influence how long a tennis ball lasts. Over time, the felt on the ball wears down and the pressure inside the ball decreases, affecting its performance.

Does the rebound height has a constant relationship with the original height of a tennis ball when released from rest and bounces on a bench?

As long as the tennis ball is not thrust downward, yes, the tennis ball will bounce back to the same proportion of its original height, no matter how far it's dropped, as long as the height is small enough that air resistance can be ignored. The ball will eventually come to rest due to this air resistance.
