Usually in a ruck, when the attentive defending back line strays offside, the ref will warn them back, and they retreat, but sometimes he will still penalise them. Is this dependent on material influence on play, or for repeated offence, or just cos he's in a mood?
It usually influences play. When a defensive line rushes up then retreats they actually prevent the attacking team from attacking at that point... ie the halfback may delay playing the ball.
