    If his (YC player) time is up then he should be allowed back on and rejoin the game, including taking the conversion kick. If there had been a long period of uninterrupted play and he's been in the...

    [Law] Re: Advantage and running out.

    The OP put them 5m from touch so if they kicked directly to touch to get the throw they wouldn't get much distance unless they had a skilled banana kicker. If they tap, pas and then kick they'd...

    [Law] Re: Advantage and running out.

    Can't off the option.

    This is a factor and being on own 5m. So, unless Yellow had a banana-kick specialist they may be looking at their own throw from only 10m.

    The solution wou l d be to run the goal line so that it crosses the posts at the front edge of the padding. Or, more radically, place the posts on the dead-ball line.

    [Law] Re: "Knock-on"

    I think that it's fair to assume that, unless C & O otherwise, the player is attempting to play the ball with hand or arm. Therefore the default is a knock-on.

    That's different from the issue of...

    What I envisioned was as described in the OP. I'm envisioning that I see the ball go through the hands and then bounce forward off the chest. I'm envisioning "Play on!".

    I agree with this. But . . . applying the laws to the facts is a good place to start. If the ball comes off his hands but goes straight down (not forward) then it's "Play on!" even though there's...

    [Law] Re: "Knock-on"

    I don't agree with this. Call it as you see it. The expected call may be 'knock-on' but the correct call is 'play-on'. The players will respect you if your call is consistent with what you saw.

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    The issue resolves itself if you consider whether the ball is going up from a kick (charge down so no 10m law in effect) or coming down from a kick (10m law in effect even when played by opponent).

    [Law] Re: Charge down & off side

    Now we enter the realm of word play.

    I don't think we should look to knock-on law for a definition of charge down as it wouldn't be pertinent if the ball didn't go forward and therefor wouldn't be referenced.
