Had this yesterday at a schools game.

Blue Drop out went straight out.

I called "Options".

Red chose scrum at the centre of the 22 metre line.

Was the other option another for Red to ask Blue to drop out again? Because if they had asked me I'm not sure I'm not sure I would have known!

They have 3 options, see below.

13.14 DROP-OUT GOES DIRECTLY INTO TOUCH
The ball must land in the field of play. If it is kicked directly into touch, the opposing team
has three choices:
To have another drop-out, or
To have a scrum at the centre of the 22-metre line, and they throw in the ball, or
To accept the kick. If they accept the kick, the throw-in is on the 22-metre line.

"To accept the kick. If they accept the kick, the throw-in is on the 22-metre line."

I got that last option wrong. Always assumed "Accept the kick" meant the throw-in would be from where the ball goes into touch. As the kick is taken behind the 22 I thought a gain in ground was possible. If the kick was shanked into a strong wind and it crossed 10m from goal then that was where the line-out was taken.
