    Default offside after knock on

    have a look at the penalty awarded at 15:48 on the TV clock (26:10 on youtube clock). Was this a referee brain fart or am I missing something?

    The only mistake I see is from green 7 who plays the ball from an off side position.
    7 is running across from the line out towards play but is never onside.
    That is fine provided he gets onside before playing the ball.
    But when the knock on occurs he falls on the ball from in front.

    Green 7 didn't participate in the lineout. He was in the centres. It looks pretty clear to me that when the knock on occurred he was behind the player who knocks on. What happens after that has no bearing.

    Referee brain fart, or a bad angle - he's tracking back at 45 degrees.

    It was not the only unusual decision in this game.

    I watched it through once, so it could be a case of seeing what we expect to see.
    In which case i am in company with a top ref, does that mean I can do asix nations match :-)

    At the moment of knock on green 7 is ONSIDE. He runs past the ball, turns and then claims it . But he was onside when his team mate played it.

    When I first saw it I thought the Ref got it right.

    Playing it back again though and I would say it was a mistake .... but the Ref doesn't get a second chance to play it back again.

    Is offside not a "can you just check this " option at the next dead ball?

    (I suspect not).

    You could ask Craig Joubert about using the TMO to check offside...
