    Interesting one.

    If I'd let play continue to the point of blue making a break, play on.

    But if red has been told not to restart like this then I'm going to have blown my whistle before blue has caught the ball anyway.

    N.B. I always thought this was a situation where you couldn't technically play advantage, but it's less explicit in the new lawbook.

    is there a danger of finessing yourself?

    Ask him to not steal ground (having allowed play to continue) , then he does it again.
    tell him not to steal ground (having allowed play to continue), then he does it again.

    If you go straight to PK (deliberate & repeat offending presumably) then youve ignored the normal sanction.
    If you go to the options sanction, he has effectively got away with it twice with no more a penalty now than had he been pulled up the first time.

    "Penalise" in that context is broadly to mean "apply applicable sanction".
    Yes I apply the appropriate warnings with the "ask" and "tell" as you describe.

    I agree, escalation to PK would be if they did it a fourth time.
