    Interestingly (not sure if anyone saw it live so not sure on the exact ref positioning) there was a YC and PT in this weeks Sale vs Leicester game, and from the highlights, after a TMO chat, it looked like the ref just called player over, YC, communicated PT, arm up in the air and jogged back - didn't look like under the sticks at all.

    i reckon... I "scored" a PT once (tap and charge at a 5m PK, tackled by a player not retreated to goal line etc).

    It didnt "feel" like I'd scored.

    That is true, but how often does it happen in the modern 15-a-side game? A quick drop-kick is more common. We didn't always bother when I was a schoolboy as the ball usually weighed a ton after 10 minutes on the water-logged pitches at Blackweir.

    Given that normal tries are usually signalled on the goal line in line with the point where they are scored, the award of a try anywhere else (whether in the field of play of in goal) shouldn't be that confusing. (I accept that where there is a heap of bodies this is not always true.) There might be some confusion if the PT was awarded on the goal line, but referees could be told to signal such tries from the field of play - maybe any PT in goal or close to the goal line could be signalled on the 5m line.

    Also, wrt to Dickie E's point, who are we talking about? The teams or the crowd? I accept there might be some confusion in the crowd at lower level matches. The referee can talk so the players would know it was a penalty try. In first class games the score board would show 7 points too. Probably broadcast over the PA. There would also be the likelihood of a YC.

    You also don't trot back to the middle after time off (do referees signal to timekeepers in lower level matches?) or after a penalty. There are also secondary referee signals at most penalties.

    I'm sure someone will come up with other scenarios, but my original question was whether PTs were signalled under the posts by convention. I'm guessing it was also done because that signalled the point of the conversion attempt.

    It would seem sensible to me to keep the referee close to the action. After all, there will have been some foul play involved.

    For PTs we could use the Grid Iron Touch Down signal

    or maybe the Aussie rules score signal X7

    His team might prefer the extras if their kicker is crap.
