    For me .. on this one I would use the 2017 law.

    In general I think approach (3) Is the only sensible one , but in this case is seems so clearly a mistake I would have to use approach (4)

    which seems eminently sensible to me - if only because "nobody" would expect somebody to run back 9m to get onside when the "offside line" is merely 1m behind them.


    In fact in extremis the o/s player could be 1cm in front of the fluffed kick, and have to run back effectively 10m if not!

    You still get a similar situation with a fluffed clearance from 5m in the in-goal that goes to someone 5m out, tackled by a player who was on the try-line at the time of the kick. You know you're right, and you know one team will never forgive you for it.

    I can't tell if you are suggesting that you can't be offside in-goal.....or not?

    No, just that the defenders will be convinced of that, and when proven wrong will be convinced that you can't expect them to let the other team just score, so there must be some law you're overlooking.

    Whilst I am slightly fearful of perpetuating the lawbook discussion, I have a PDF of the 2017 lawbook which I have put here...
