    If that is the new standard WR need to let us know and provide some examples. I don't know why they would have gone away from the accepted standard.

    Personally I thought it may not have been a PT because I tend to think the Scot might not have been able to ground the ball.

    If so, then yes, I expect so. If an Australian defender had been close enough to foul him.
    That's the one Dickie yes.

    Under the above protocols it would not have been a PT had he been taken out by the player that almost got to the ball when he fly hacked it on.

    even though it was a romp in try as we know.

    Going back to earlier posts, when I saw this I thought like the referee that Beale could have grounded first if he had not offended. Some posts suggest once he had offended you assume he wasn't there and what would probably have happened then? (i.e. White try).

    Is that right?

    Yes.

    The alternative is to require the referee to think of other actions that the offender could have taken and decide if any would have prevented the try. Far too much guessing required. The player did in fact offend. That was his contribution to play. Why should he deserve further consideration? Take his action out and then decide if a try would have been scored - that is enough guesswork to make things equitable. The defender now knows that doing something illegal is unlikely to be of benefit.

    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.
