You say yourself it was an attempted interception?
So Knock on, scrum.

If it stopped a probable try being scored PT and YC.

You say "the referee did nothing.". By that do you mean not even a scrum?

If he gave the scrum I'd say without seeing the incident I can't possibly say it was not a reasonable call. It would depend upon what I saw.

If he did nor even give a scrum, perhaps he was unsighted.

I can't see how anybody not seeing the incident can comment definitively.

The answer is
. If it was a genuine and realistic interception attempt it's a knock on and scrum
- if it was a cynical knock down its a PT and a YC

Sometimes it's an obvious decision, sometimes it's tricky.
The OP showed how fine the line is, when he referred to an interception attempt, but he was obviously expecting a YC. Well which was it? It has to be one or the other

Well, you have to see it to tell......

Here's an example of a 'deliberate?' knock-on where the PT decision seems to rest solely on which colour shirt you support .....

From 1:14:30s on the clock ...

Obvious from my leaning !
