This then?

The kneeling position is defined as only 3 points of contact with the ground (2 feet & 1 knee).

The rear foot shall be upright and straight in line with the knee, sitting on a turned foot is not allowed.

A legal bean bag/seat may be used to support the knee, shin and foot areas, not the buttock or thighs.

The rifle will be supported only by the two hands with the rifle butt in the shoulder, no other part of the body can be used to support the rifle nor can the hands be supported on any other part of the body.

The leading hand will support the gun and, forward of the wrist should itself be unsupported (the wrist is deemed to be the hinged joint between hand and forearm).
