Reds kick forward into Blues in-goal, the ball bobbles up just as a Blues player is about to catch and ground it, the Blues player only succeeds in knocking the bal (backwards) out over the touch-in-goal line. I can only find a reference to this sort of situation still resulting in being a drop-out to Blues on the 22m line, does anybody have another view? if so what Law states it? No trick questions here, this happened to me on sat. FWIW I gave a scrum to Reds on the 5m line junction, I have looked at the laws and it looks like it should have been a 22m drop-out to Blues??

Reds took it in, from then on it doesn't matter how the ball becomes dead (unless try scored or foul play) the result is a 22m drop out.

Only other option would be a PT if you thought Blue knocking the ball out was deliberate throwing the ball off the pitch.

It should have been a drop out, yes.

Thanks, thought I was wrong, one of those brainstorm moments
