    I think the easiest option is the line out.

    so blue ball carrier is NOT in touch ... and it's a red lineout?

    I think that's rather unfair to blue!

    for me -- blue scrum

    As a side note, as a referee, if my TJ / AR put his flag up and then told me the person wasn't out, I'd be pretty damn pissed off.

    I once had an idiot TJ who put his flag up to signal a try (in the corner).

    Obviously I awarded a line out.
    TJ said 'No, he wasn't in touch! it was a try!'
    'but you put your flag up?'
    'sorry'

    I gave the try.

    Easily done; I've done it.

    Player went over in the corner to score. Instinctively I put my hand up to indicate a try ... forgetting that I was a TJ and had a flag in it. The Ref was OK about it though. Sorry.

    the key thing for the ref to think of is: to make sure that the coaches and subs for the defending team, who are standing on the far touchline and clearly saw the flag, all understand what happened.
    Otherwise they can become quite agitated, I found

    There's no happy solution. and the side going forward could be red, of course despite Bblue being the ball carrier etc.

    "line out called guys we'll go with that." Followed by a suitable word with the guy running the flag.

    A particular favourite of mine is TJ indicating the offside lines for the backs at scrum or lineout by holding his flag out horizontally- a perfect 'foul play' signal. So far not seen a ref blow for it -but it's only a matter of time. I tend to ask them 'not with the flag, please' and strangely they all seem to realise the mistake.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

    ... who now knows that he can get "his side" out of the mire if he so chooses to do so via his flag. At least once anyway before you have him replaced.

    Does football use potentially partisan team members to run the lines?

    There's a few people on this thread that shouldn't live in glass houses.

    We have all made mistakes. The key is to be able to learn from them.......not have the ref growl at you.
