    Default Kick from 22, when is it inside

    If the kicker is running forward towards their own 22 (when not taken back in) and kicks to touch, where is the boundary between being "in" and "out" of the 22?
    Say one foot is still in the 22 and the ball is directly above the line when it's kicked, that's in, right?
    At what point is it "out" - is it the position of the ball at the initial impact of the kicking foot?

    The line is inside. its a bit like when is a "no ball" a "no ball" in cricket. If he has overstepped the line then he is outside, fort on it then all ok

    Not sure that's very helpful.
    The definition of "out" on the touchline is clearly defined in law, by comparison.
    What's the law here? Or guidance?

    It's got to be based on the foot that's on the ground, I think

    The 22m is part of the 22

    So I would say the foot has to be wholly behind the outer edge of the paint

    Apply the same logic. Consitancy.


    The point earlier is: It needs to be clear and obviouse that it is not legal. If it is that close that it may be one or it may be the other make a call. I'd say if you are in doubt that it is outside. Don't blow your whistle.

    Actually in cricket on the line is a no ball. Part of the foot has to be behind it

    The 22 does not include the touchlines, so part of the BC's foot on a touchline is outside the 22 (and out of play).

    The 22 does include the 22 line. So part of the BC's foot on the 22 line is inside the 22.

    ??
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Well, you have to draw a line somewhere ..and it's always one one edge of the paint or the other

    Whole of the foot over the whole of the line is outside the 22m.

    If there is any doubt whatsoever the kicker gets the benefit of the doubt.
