    If we go by the law book, it's a 5m attacking scrum.
    I would have got it wrong in the game.

    Learn something every day.
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    Perhaps one for the SArefs, could be an interesting response? I've asked Laws@RFU too.

    I too think that on the day - if it was prior to last week when we had a similar scenario with a maul going in and out of the in-goal - I too would have applied the who brought it in logic to award a 22-drop.

    But now I think 5m attacking scrum is the correct decision.

    I've emailed SA refs. We see what they say.

    Response from Laws@........

    hi
    Apologies for the late answer but I have been asking around the office and colleagues and no one has ever seen what you have described. We all agreed he was a Wally and should have touched the ball down for a 22 metre drop out but as he missed that opportunity it is a 5 metre scrum attack ball.

    , isnt exactly a professional reply.


    Did they try asking the office tea lady?!! , seriously though, does anyone know who these office/colleagues are? that possess the authority to share such opinion! ?

    LOL.

    What's he doing in the 'referees dept', surely he should be out heading up 'developing professional referees' !

    Wombles suggested logic makes more sense, Its possible that 22.10 omits forgets that a defender' could get held up, otherwise law might have said

    . Whenever a ball is held and not grounded inside the in-goal area, a 5-metre scrum is awarded with the attacking team throwing in the ball.
