I was just wondering if someone can clear up the new knock on advantage rule.
Tonight in the wire - widnes game. Wire knocked on & widnes picked the ball up & booted it downfield & the Warrington player booted it out of play & the ref awarded the scrum to where it was kicked out.
However earlier this season when we played Sheffield at home the same thing happened, pryce picked up in his own 10 & booted the ball downfield for the Sheffield full back to kick it out of play in his own half, this would of gained us 50 yards downfield however the ref brought play back to where the knock on was.
So what is the correct rule? Is advantage played & gained to the team picking up the knock on?
Maybe I should know the rule, but it can become confusing when referee's don't know the rules.
