    Should have added earlier that a jumper can use his outside arm but only if the inside arm is up as well.

    Go with the clear and obvious that everyone involved and the crowd all saw. Not straight, options Captain.
    ...and have a word with the jumper about his arms before the next lineout.

    I guarantee if you go with the FK for outside arm you will have everyone scratching their heads and thinking you haven't got a clue what your doing. Help yourself by going with the C&O. You don't need to prove that you know know every law in the book that no one else has ever heard of.

    Of course if the jumper used his inside arm to elbow his opposite number in the face we are in different territory.

    Castleford. In my experience.

    I don't think I've ever had to penalise outside arm but I've probably tooted for not straight where it may have occurred - I don't think I've noticed TBH.

    When LO jumpers were not lifted, a way of going higher for the ball was to reach up with only one arm. Try it. Use of the outside arm implied that your inner shoulder, and probably head, were leaning into the gap and thus obstructing the oppo jumper.

    Nowadays, with lifting, you really do not wish to unbalance your support with a heavy lean. Thus it must be one of the least used infringements.

    Whatever else the jumper is using the inside arm for illegally is probably far more heinous than winning the ball with only the wrong arm up.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    30 people?

    what makes you think anybody outside the #9 (maybe!) has any interest whatsoever is going on within the confines of the lineout ?

    To all those backs its just a bunch of large sweaty people jumping up and down that may get them the ball so they can drop it!

    Seems very clear to me. Jumper goes straight up and uses outside arm. - not straight, option.
    Ball thrown straight and jumper uses outside arm -he must have leaned over - FK. No problem if two arms raised.
