    Context, low level no pressure scenario in their own half, probably play on and have a word at next opportunity. League / cup game, on the 5, trying to go quick - peep, bring it back and do it properly. I can’t imagine a scenario where I would actually penalise, maybe I should, but I only ref at up to L8 currently.

    I would never ever play on. Unless a repeat infringement I'd require a retake

    Never? Up to u14 we’re supposed to play on if not material in RFU land so definitely a teaching point, but if just a lazy tap it’s probably not the most important thing going on

    with all due respect to RFU, that is a step too far IMO. What if he'd used his elbow instead of his knee ... play on?

    Agreed, pull it up, explain and retake. How else do kids learn the law set and how to play? Our U12's have the ability and understanding to take quick taps/free kicks properly and we are a comparative rugby wasteland!
    There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

    So that's why they come up to U15 trying it on!!
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Mine don’t, they know what they’re supposed to do, but a lot do, especially dual code players. My point being that you don’t have to stop the game to correct then, let them play and have a word. If they keep on doing, then act differently. You can get the same result.

    There as been a Law Book Change !

    Taking a penalty or free-kick

    A penalty or free-kick must be taken without delay.
    Any player from the non-offending team may take it, other than for a free-kick awarded for a mark.
    The kicker must use the ball that was in play unless the referee decides it is defective.
    The kicker may punt, drop-kick or place-kick (other than for touch) the ball.
    The kicker may kick the ball in any direction.
    Other than the placer at a place-kick, the kicker’s team must remain behind the ball until it has been kicked.
    The ball must be kicked a visible distance. If the kicker is holding it, it must clearly leave the hands. If it is on the ground, it must clearly leave the mark. Once the kick has been successfully taken the kicker may play the ball again.
    Sanction: Scrum.


    A sanction - Scrum - has been added !

    The Law books from 2017-2020 omitted that sanction, the new 2021 Law book has snuck it in.

    I do wish they would bring back the old practice of highlighting all changes, rather than leaving it up to us to notice them.
