In the Wales Italy game Wales kicked the ball out on the full, from outside 22m

It was a long kick - perhaps 40/50m, and Italian player caught the ball in touch, and then ran up the touchline toward to where the line of touch would be... and about half way there took a QT.

Wayne Barnes stopped it.. and said 'no, you must take the QT EITHER where you caught it, OR at the line of touch'

Was he wrong?


(b) For a quick throw-in, the player may be anywhere outside the field of play between the place where the ball went into touch and the player’s goal line.

He wasn't exactly correct.

A QT can be taken anywhere from where the ball went into touch to the thrower-in's goal line.

But that's a difficult explanation to give to someone in the middle of an international - Barnes' explanation was good enough for the purpose at the time.
