The phrase "up 'n' under" (a catchphrase of real-life rugby commentator Eddie Waring) is a term used in rugby. An "up 'n' under" is a high kick angled so that the catcher, while looking skyward at the descending ball, receives at the same time as the ball, one or more chasing players travelling at speed, into his abdomen. The intention is to dislodge the ball, or even persuade the catcher to not bother making the catch.
