    Default Score information

    It's near the end of the game and Blue are leading Red 19-15, but give a penalty away on their own 22, about 25m in from touch.

    There's a scoreboard next to the pitch, presumably manned by a club volunteer unofficially, that clearly reads 17-15.

    Do you alert Red (or both) that the scoreboard is incorrect? Is it their own problem for not keeping track and trusting a scoreboard? What do you say if the Red captain asks?

    If Captain asks then I tell him what score I have and my score is the only one that matters!

    I'd blow time off, confirm score with scoreboard operator, get it fixed.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    I agree with Dickie , if you notice the scoreboard is wrong then blow time off, tell both captains..

    Assuming no one's trying to go quick for the penalty, yes to above, time off and make sure everyone agrees and is on the same information

    Yes, both. I agree with others.

    It's their game remember, they should know if they are being fed wrong information.
    There is no valid reason to withhold it, or not correct it.

    This assumes you keep a running total. Many referees do not.

    I don't (I think its dangerous to do that, as one mistake means you are wrong for the rest of the game )

    But in a close game players will ask me the score and I add it up for them.

    Related question.....
    If at the end of a game you have a score which both teams disagree with and both teams agree that the score should be x what do you do?
