    Default Kick from in goal and goes to touch-in-goal

    There's a 5M scrum, White is defending, White wins the ball. They pass back, in to goal, to kicker for clearing kick. Nice high long kick but He flubbs it. Ball travels 50m laterally across field and maybe 5m forward,. Bounces in field of play then backwards into touch in- goal.
    Pretty sure that's a 5m scrum to their opponents. But ?
    Also where is the mark? Spot opposite the kick?

    Even though the ball bounces in the FoP, White (defending team) are responsible for putting it back into their in-goal and then making it dead there. Therefore it is a 5m attacking scrum, not in line with where the ball was kicked, but on the side of the field where it went over the TIG line, 5m out and 5m in from touch (i.e. on the junction of the 5m lines).
    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.

    Is there a law reference for this? I can't find one in the lawbook and I'd expect, perhaps naively, that the scrum would be 15m from touch.

    This establishes that it is a 5m scrum

    22.11 BALL DEAD IN IN-GOAL
    (a) When the ball touches the touch-in-goal line or the dead ball line, or touches anything or
    anyone beyond those lines, the ball becomes dead. If the ball was played into in-goal by the
    attacking team, a drop-out shall be awarded to the defending team. If the ball was played
    into in-goal by the defending team, a 5-metre scrum shall be awarded and the attacking
    team throws in the ball.


    As near as I can recall, only a PK or FK is brought 15m in, The only way a scrum can be brought 15m in is if it is taken as an option to such a PK or FK

    Only penalties under law 19 are awarded on the 15m.
    Other penalties the mark is at the place of infringement.

    The mark for a scrum cannot be made within 5m of touch of the goal line.

    Nope. 10.2 (c), 10.4 (n) and 10.4 (o) are as well

    Law 10.2 (c) is throwing the ball into touch, so it is sort of relates to Law 19

    Law 10.4 (n) is Misconduct when the ball is out of play (and it doesn't need to be in touch to be out of play)

    Law 10.4 (o) is Late Charging the kicker. If the ball lands in touch or within 15m of touch, the mark for the PK is 15m in from touch.
