In today's RU internationals both England and Australia turned down clickable penalties which could have won their respective games.

Just shows that others make the mistakes that we often have done.

As primary school rugby players my brother and I were taught to always take the points to be the team in front.

We have often remarked that they were wise words. Teams seem to make more mistakes when they are behind and chasing the game.

It also puts mental pressure on the opposition not to risk straying offside or giving other daft penalties away in kicking distance. And you should get the ball back.

Clickable penalties?

I’m surprised you lot support England RU, with them having no Wakefield players I’d expect you to support the opposition, as you do with England RL.

No right and wrong in these scenarios at the time, only being wise after the event and confirmation bias - that's all.

Taking the 2 (or 3) or running is dependent on many, many variables and isn't just a simple you must always/you must never equation.

As a general rule of thumb, yes, but as with a drop goal you have to weigh up the pros & cons of 1 or 2 pts against fielding the ball under your own sticks and not coming up with an error on exit that allows your opposition to maybe take 6

You’re voluntarily giving up field position for 2 pts when maybe continued pressure will pay a greater dividend.

Also, it can be a negative signal that fuels the oppositions beleif that you’re not confident of breaking down their defence.

It's maybe more complex than that. Run it and the opposition have six more tackles to execute. Force a drop-out, and it becomes twelve. You get to play the game in their half. There may not be an immediate reward, but with the game played in their half, and with added fatigue in the opposition, you might be more likely to get the reward later in the game.
