A team can change from non-posts to posts but not vice versa:I'm curious - what basis in law do you have that says they can't change their kick type (eg go for posts/punt for LO?) . Unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean?
Law 8.20: If the team indicates to the referee the intention to kick at goal, they must kick at goal. The intention to kick can be communicated to the referee or signalled by the arrival of the kicking tee or sand, or when the player makes a mark on the ground.
I guess this may come into play if the kicker starts putting ball on tee in the wrong place. If the ref tells him to move it to the mark he can't then decide to kick for touch
