    The offside line is rear feet of the ruck so once the ruck ends, anyone infront of the offside line is in an offside position. Simples...

    So everybody in the ruck is offside?

    I think you mean that if a player was offside before the ruck ended, he is still offside when it ends.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    when a ruck ends, pedantcially I suppose all the team mates of the SH with the ball are offside in general play, and causing an obstruction.
    but clearly the Laws aren't meant to work like that.

    It's been a long time since we dragged out the USA GMG:
    A. Ruck1. The ball is out when there are no bodies over the ball from a bird’s eye view.
    2. Whilst the competition for the ball in a ruck is ongoing, hands by players in the
    ruck, are NOT allowed. PK
    3. Once the ball has been clearly won, pushing the ball back by using the hand,
    by a player of the team that have won possession of the ball is permissible,
    AND, digging for the ball, by the player of the team who has won possession
    of the ball, who is in the scrumhalf position and not part of the ruck, is
    permissible and the BALL IS NOT OUT.
    4. If a player in the scrum half position is not retrieving (digging for) the ball, but
    holding the ball, with one or two hands, the BALL IS OUT.
    5. Players in the ruck may under no circumstance slap the ball out of the
    scrumhalf’s hands or interfere with the scrumhalf. PK

    I like it.
    If you look hard enough, there'll be a penalty in there somewhere.

    The greatest ruck is one that never forms, but sometimes it can't be helped. #Woshkabomy

    Once the ruck ends, there are no offside lines anymore. Unless as OB implies you're referring to lazy runners. Players particpating (and bound into) in the ruck can't be offside.
