    when I penalised it a couple of weeks ago, I am not sure whether it even was deliberate !
    the scrum half was playing out of position and not comfortable in the role. Behind the ruck he was very twitchy, and I had warned him twice already. He actually apologised and explained that he was nervous (!) Perhaps he was pulling my leg, perhaps he wasn't.

    at a subsequent ruck he more than twitched, and the entire opposing back line moved up, thinking the ball was out. . I was similarly fooled - I thought he was passing it! So this time I gave the FK. It didn't happen again

    Was playing in a game at the start of the season (this year). 9 Picked up the ball took a step to pass. But there was a player in the road (our player), so he stopped the pass and passed in another direction. The ref pinged him for it, tbh I didn't think anything of it at the time but after the match I started to think, hang on the ball was out of the ruck. He's perfectly entitled to dummy then. Am I wrong?

    That wasn't a dummy pass....it was a dummy ref!

    Scrum halves are allowed to dummy a pass with the ball in their hands
    What they can't do is dummy a pass when the ball is still in the ruck

    Yeah, I know this. I can only guess the ref felt that he dummied it from the base of the ruck. As I said at the time that's what I think he'd blew for as that's what I thought I'd saw too. But it wasn't until later I realised that the ball was out of the ruck and the dummy was a pass in hands, not from the ruck.
