    TBH IF it ever happened in a game I reckon you can sell it either way. Lets face it - whichever way you call it one side will think you are wrong anyway.

    In general I would agree but add the caveat that it may depend on the level of game it happened in.

    but what level of game would a team steal the ball at a maul, successfully make it available, but then fail to Use It ..

    a kids game perhaps?

    Sorry. I was really referring to Didd's second paragraph only.

    In which case you would get the ball out. Come on now.

    If teams always used the ball quickly, we would not have a law requiring the ref to tell them to use it.

    Indeed not. That is why WR tried to stop the time wasting tactic. To suggest that they get a second benefit would be stupid.

    The point of the above post is that kids would not be stupid enough to hold the ball in if their scrum was poor knowign tht doing so would result in a scrum.

    Of course! I've just reread the question! It's the old double negative - second time this week I've been caught out! Please disregard the OP. And apologies to ARU for ever doubting them.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    So in the unlikely event of this really happening on the pitch, what would you actually give ?
