I've seen this discussed elsewhere, so thought I'd throw it in here too.

11.6 (b)
When a player hands the ball to a team-mate in front of the first player, the receiver is offside. Unless the receiver is considered to be intentionally offside (in which case a penalty kick is awarded), the receiver is accidentally offside and a scrum is formed with the opposing team throwing in the ball.

so a PK might be considered harsh, in that instance.

Surely Wood did not enter through the gate anyway?

Definitely a PK for offside.
Not too clued up on the TMO protocol re number of phases. Weren't they in the 3rd phase when the "try" was scored?
