    Default Correcting a mistake

    Here is an odd one

    Player is just about to take a kick when NO blows his whistle and says .. the mark is in the wrong place .. and moves him.

    And then says do you still want a shot, now I have moved you ?

    Not sure what your point/question is. Mistake made in placing the mark, realised prior to the kick, correct action is to move the mark. This may impact the kick decision so you re-ask the question. Seems perfectly handled to me (apart from the obvious initial error but we all make them).

    What would we do in this situation?

    Red scrum 10 metres out from Blue goal line. Before Red SH feeds the ball, Blue collapses scrum and ref penalises. Red SH, with ball in hand, takes quick tap clearly 2 metres off the mark. Ref brings it back.

    Can Red captain now opt for shot at goal?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    No they can't. Red was "in the wrong" so they don't get a second chance.

    Sorry my error miss read the situation. You can change your mind to kick at goal but not the other way round. UNLESS the call was made on the basis of incorrect information from the officials.
