    that is clearly in contravention of law. How do you justify that decision?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Not really. In this forum we struggle to separate discussions about what the Law Book says and what a grass roots ref should do on Saturday.
    (I posted a proposal for solving this before .. in the forum section.)

    12.11 law does not say "must be restarted with a 22DO"

    7.3.F

    Advantage MUST not be applied and the referee MUST blow the whistle immediately when:

    The ball is made dead.

    that would mean you couldn't score a try from advatage .

    In reality - it means something else ...

    Serious note as it is important : that Law means something else : it means you can't carry on playing advantage when the ball goes dead

    For example blue 11 knocks on, and then he kicks the ball into touch -- you can't carry on playing advantage to let RED take a QTI.. even if it would be a really good QTI)...

    If you are playing advantage and then the ball goes dead, then as the Law says : you must blow your whistle. Then EITHER declare "no advantage, back to the offence" or "Adv over" continue with the lineout (or whatever)

    Here:

    I quote:

    "...the simplified law book is designed to make the laws easier to understand while not altering the meaning of them or how the game is played."

    That was the explicit intent.

    If your claim is that, they screw it up, I am with you, but exactely because of that, refereeing to the letter of the new book, ignoring what the old one said is not the sensible thing to do in my view, as we would be reffing according to "unintended consequences" instead of what the law-makers wanted actually to achieve.

    I have been giving this option but then I saw a game today in The Champ Cup and the option wasn't given.
    This happened this afternoon in the Italy v Scotland match, 42 minutes in, Scotland player loses control in the field of play, ball goes into the in-goal area, bounces loose and Italy touch it down.

    The referee says it was touched down and awards a 5m scrum to Italy. Referee Ben O'Keefe thinks 5m scrum, good enough for me

    In fact rhere were multiple changes. Some of them did seem to be accidental, but many were clearly deliberate (and welcome)

    See my table for a full analysis

    But really who cares now. There have also been changes since the rewrite as well

    The laws now are what's written in the 2020 law book
