Answered: <SG8> in autonomous & Possession

When starting in the hanging zone with the preload in possession of the robot, is it legal to bump the nearest large ball such that it knocks the Buckyballs on the bump into the Middle Zone. The robot would never directly come into contact with the buckyballs, but push the big ball instead.

Would this be considered herding per the definition, or entirely legal?
Thank you ahead of time.

As long as the Large Ball is only being pushed and not being held, this type of maneuver would be considered legal.
