    I can think of times when the PT is awarded for an action within the in goal area, but Id accept theyd be very extreme and frankly unlikely - somewhat chopperesque scenarios (I _think_ the in goal is not in the field of play! LOL)

    I had a situation a couple of seasons ago where the attacking winger broke clear down the right tram lines into the goal area. As he ran towards the posts he was clothes lined by a defender and lost the ball. I gave a penalty try and red card. I think that was well within the mainstream of law application, and not really chopperesque.

    I also had an in-goal PT recently. I don't think that is so exceedingly rare that it is purely a hypothetical-never-going-to-happen.

    Ball carrier running in in-goal to center the try, defending player chased from behind and made a "seat belt" tackle and prevented the grounding. It didn't seem like a rare situation.

    Had the seat penalty not prevented the grounding, but prevented the ball carrier going under the posts, would you have awarded the penalty try and YC then?

    Didds' reply outlined where the act of foul play giving rise to the PT take place.

    PTs are awarded between the goal posts.

    there would need to be a new signal for a PT for that to work unambiguously. Ref sticks arm in air 5 metres in from touch and 5 metres out from goal line ... is he/she signaling time off, a penalty, a regular try or a PT?
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Indeed. After all a side can decline a conversion attempt. Therfore, the lack of one is not conclusive evidence of a PT.
