    Arguably they don't really need to be given a scrum, greens fumble brought it's own reward for blue
    Only if they are so much closer as a consequence that they can impact on Green's next move - and even then they would often prefer a scrum. The referee could perhaps call Advantage.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Under current law yes.
    I was idly floating a change in the Law which would be only sanction a knock on if it advantaged the team knocking on . In this scenario green gained nothing from fumbling so play on

    Offside is different because the offside law specifically provides for a player not being penalised if he follows the requirements. There is no get out clause for a knock-on.
