Blue attacker kicks ball in to in goal area, red defender picks it up kicks the ball and it hits the back of the posts and disappears out of play, what is the decision and why? is it 22 drop or attacking scrum 5?

Reading into your description that the ball never crossed the goal line (ie., went out of play by way of either the dead ball line or touch-in-goal), then it's a 22 drop out.

Ball put into in-goal by attackers and made dead there = 22 drop out as provided for in Law 22.7.

This is question 1 of the Level 2 referees exam, isn't it?

22 drop out.

I agree - 22m drop out as blue took play into ingoal. Would have loved to have seen the scenario you describe though.

Would hate to see his golf swing, if his kicking is that bad:D
