    Why?

    Its 100% correct, and as ST says, a referees do get this wrong. Why would the OP (an inexperienced referee) not want to get the Law right?

    Start as you mean to go on!!!

    I always feel that there's some inequality to this scenario:

    Team A kicks ball into team B's in goal. B player picks the ball up, runs around in goal for a while and then decides to run over the dead ball line or touch in goal. Never liked that one.

    Taff, try zone is so common here that you'd be fighting a losing battle to try change it. I see that try line is becoming prevalent on most TV commentary too!

    It's better than calling it the end zone

    Not really. Just call it what it is, "In Goal". Otherwise you might as well call it a wheelbarrow.

    If the ball was high and loopy and the opponent tried to catch not block - knock on.
    For me the essence of a charge down is that the charger had acted essentially before he knew quite where the ball was going, and had no time to react to it.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    As a general rule, it is best to use the terms in the Laws. However that is not the way language works, and unless the term is actually misleading (like "double movement"!), I see no reason to worry.

    So lets all start calling it the End Zone.....and while we are at it, lets call it a touchdown instead of a try.....and we might as well call referees, umpires.

    I would rather encourage newbies to ask their questions without regard for the minutiae of the rules. Do you understand what is meant by "try zone"? If yes, move on.

    You sir are correct. Encourage the game not the pedantry.
