    You'd be surprised.

    I watched my lad (L5) refereeing a good standard of women's 7s in the Summer (on a live stream) and a few of the teams had players who couldn't kick the conversion from (mostly) bang in front.

    One lass, ironically the one who scored most of the tries for Swansea, missed about 5 from in front - whether she was knackered or just rubbish I'm not sure. Either way a coach or someone nominated her to kick as the best (least rubbish) at it??

    I often wonder that some women must be football converts and I would have thought they'd be ok at it.

    I've let punts/letting it bounce a foot or two in the air and booting it on the way back down (as a restart) go in an effort to "let them play".

    YMMV

    In a blow out game, with multiple players taking shots and missing, you're going to stress about this?

    A very one-sided game and not long into the second half about eight tries had been scored without a single successful conversion so greens (the dominant team) were letting anyone who wanted to try a conversion have a go.

    So they gave the ball to a second row who duly tried to punt it through the posts (and missed).

    Simon you are saying that a team who are winning a blow out game, and eight tries up , and punt a conversion kick should be given the two points anyway, as it's not important .

    I stand by my answer , if they punt a conversion it's no fuss , no matter, but no points . Especially as they are forty points up already

    But you disagree ?

    The punt missed. It's a non issue.

    But the OP question was what happens if it went over ?
    I say it wasn't a proper conversion no points.

    You are saying I have my priority all wrong .. so the implication is give them two points anyway. 50-0 becomes 52-0 or whatever

    What I am saying is take the skill factor into account. Also it is perhaps best not make too many assumptions.

    disallow the kick. No points and no retake.

    If a hooker can't throw straight into a lineout - what ya gonna do? Let them keep retaking the throw?

    If you award points for an incorrectly taken conversion then you diminish the skill value of the player who succeeds.

    I was at a girls 7's Tournament at Canada Bay (Sydney) at the weekend and there was one girl who nailed almost all her conversions including those 5 - 10 metres from the touchline. She was playing for Illawarra Under 13!
    Not sure how much coaching and how much just learnt by herself.
