    I'm not doubtig a mark is possible if the ball comes off the posts and is either caught cleanly or bobbled (although bobbled being "ok" may be poor wording.) . I susspect if the ball bobbls into a post after the initial stage of the catch means a Knock on has taken place. Just as it would if it "bobbled " into another player.

    But you might bobble it backwards into a post?

    Is there any justification for treating a post as another player or the ground?
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    I think there is case to do so.

    The player has fumbled the bal. Question would he have caught it but for it bouncing back off the post?

    I'd say the posts are part of the game -- when a PK hits a posts and bounces back we don't award a 22m DO on the grounds that is what would have happened if it hadn't hit the post.

    a bobble off the posts -- play on with a smile, give you that one, don't do it again !

    reasons not to blow the whistle etc

    If the ball or ball-carrier touches a corner flag or corner flag post without otherwise being in touch or touch-in-goal, play continues unless the ball is grounded against the post..

    What if the ball bobbles back off the corner flat post? Still okay for calling a Mark! ?

    Well if it would be good enough to award a try from then I would also award the mark!
