    Missing since the rewrite. This was a good chance to fill that gap

    So last season we'd all give 22m DO - what will we give this season ? A goal line one ?
    If we gave a 22 drop last year, and the the trial makes no mention of this particular situation, it makes sense to give a 22 drop this year.

    Agreed, no different to kicking the ball dead so 22 for me.

    Some other oddities arising from the curious wording used in the laws

    blue kick into red in goal
    .. red ground ball = GLDO
    .. red kick ball over DBL = 22mDO

    Blue charge down a red clearance kick and ball goes into red in goal
    .. red ground ball = 22mDO (not a GLDO oddly)
    .. red kick ball over DBL = 22mDO
    .. red knock on = 5m scrum
    .. blue knock on = GLDO

    It's quite complicated !
    (and seems a little random)

    I would agree. The most likely scenario where the team would want the PK instead of the LO is if they wanted the 3 points, and how many grassroots kickers can consistently kick goals from their own half?

    I remember one game in the bottom level league some years ago. The Gloucester Civil Service fly half had clearly played at a higher level but was getting on in years. The ball came to him just inside his own half and he dropped a goal into a strong wind.

    The club folded not long afterwards - the Civil Service Sports Council reported that they were not paying their way, and the site was sold for housing.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Why is it people struggle to take drop-kick conversions, yet can slot them from much further in open play?

    Because many more 'people' try at shorter ranges?
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    because "open play" usually happens dead in front ?
