    Default Professional foul/intentional infringement?

    So I might be a bit biased as I am Canadian and this happened in a Canada-Samoa match, but wouldn't this be considered a professional foul? The guys is getting treated 5 or so meters behind the offside line, play goes towards him, he stands up, disrupts the Canadian attack and then lies back down for more treatment. I mean Canada did take the quick tap and make solid ground before DTH got taken out by the sniper, but still, the guy got up as he was being treated, made a weak attempt at a tackle, clearly disrupting the play (all in an offside position) and then got right back down on his knees to get more treatment. IMO

    I don't see an offside line?
    First breakdown is a tackle not a ruck, then play moves over to him.
    Open play, no offsides.

    But yes, he should be out of the game, so for me.

    No ruck, just tackle, good point, Phil E. That raises the question as to why are the Samoans not advancing beyond the tackle? If they did who here would ping them for it?

    Is the player being treated really out of the game? Does he need your permission to re-enter?

    There was a ruck formed. I just took a bad cut from the video. Gimme a sec and I'll try to get another one uploaded. Samoan 9 went to poach and was taken out by a Canadian player. That constitutes the formation of a ruck.

    It's wrong for me. What was the PK for? That offence or something else. I'd be looking at a card too.

    They'll be standing off in the rucks next! All standing in backfield wherever they like! Don't compete at mauls, rucks and feed the ball crooked at scrums/lineouts....we'll be in the NRL before we know it!

    Anyway he's offside so but if the PK is not for the offside tackle I would guess the referee does not know if he was on or offside from the last breakdown.
    Award the try under 22.4(g) and put on your riot gear!

    Forget about the offside for the moment. Why can't an injured player rejoin the game as & when he feels fit to do so?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Here's an example according to your logic...there's a breakdown about 2-3 meters behind an "injured" player (he's in an offside position). He then stands up, takes 2 steps, grabs the ball and passes it to one of his onside teammates. So according to you, this is fine and should be allowed to happen? What's the difference between that and the play I just posted except for it being more obvious.
