He had no reason to at first as Jones was just running with the ball, the chip and regather was a split second in which he checked his run but even with all that he was nowhere near affecting the play in the split second he was offside.
He was ahead of his team mate who had the ball. Ergo, he was offside. He ran all the way across the pitch parallel to the half way line. In that time he easily could have chosen to run back to get back onside (by but chose not to by remaining upfield from the ball carrier. You can’t just hang around offside until your team mate maybe puts you back on by padding you out. You have to make an effort to get back onside.
“An offside player may be penalised if that player:
Fails to retire without undue delay and benefits from being put onside in a more advantageous position; or
Interferes with play; or
Moves towards the ball.”
Hogg did all four.
Time to let this one go yet?
You've quoted the laws referring to offside from a ruck, maul or set piece.
It was from a set piece though, surely the laws apply to quick lineouts too.
