    Default Lineout not 5m

    Seeing as we are discussing players blocking QTI from going 5m, let's return to another old chestnut .. what sanction do you customarily give for a player who prevents the ball from going 5m at a lineout ?

    Same as I would for levering on a opponent, holding shoving or charging.

    if its a timing issue, usually scrum/lineout option to opponents. If its egregious, FK
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Without looking it up, I thought it was FK on the 15m line.

    Again without looking it up, I thought the LO / Scrum option was only available if the thrower ballsed it up. Eg if he had a foot in the FoP, he failed to throw it 5m or he failed to throw it in straight.

    23. The ball must:
    a. Be thrown in straight along the mark of touch; and
    b. Reach the five-metre line before it hits the ground or is played.
    Sanction: Option of lineout or scrum. If the lineout is chosen and the ball is again not thrown straight, a scrum is awarded to the team that originally threw in the ball.

    This only when the numpty thrower can't get it to the 5m.

    Timing issue IS egregious.
    So for me FK to opponent every time a player prevents it going 5m. (Nothing happens by accident ).

    Plus it has the added bonus of getting on with the game and not to dick around with a scrum where another sanction is probably the result!

    Ps i can never recall a complaint from any team being awarded a FK protesting it should be a scrum...nor the offending team for that matter

    Sooner or later a player is going to ask you for a Law Reference

    This happens a few times a season for me, lowest leagues and junior rugby. Enough to usually stand by the thrower at attacking LOs in the 22...

    The front player at the lineout fakes a lift, turns around to the hooker and takes a step forward, hands outstretched to catch the short ball, which only goes 3m. LO/scrum option.
