In order to see a challenge, we must position ourselves to see between players. If you are looking at me from the front, you won’t know if anyone is pushing my back. If you are looking at me from the back, you won’t know if I am pushing someone in front of me. So you have to see between two people in order to correctly assess pushing, holding, and similar fouls.

When a GK is about to punt a kick, we need to anticipate where the ball will land. Oftentimes players will gather around the landing area to challenge for the ball. In the process, there may be some offences. Please watch the video below as an opportunity to learn how to position yourself better. As a general rule of thumb, you want the play to be between your lead AR and yourself. You also want to position yourself so you can see between players.
