A kicks ball from behind their 22 into touch.
Ball bounces off a railing and into hands of awaiting B who is in touch.
B makes a quick throw in to a teammate who is 5.5 meters from touch and behind the spot where ball went into touch.
I was taught that if the ball strikes an impediment, person, dog, when it lands in touch there is No quick throw in.
Has there been a change in this law?

Only people. I don't know if that's changed.

It's play on in this case..
Only if the ball is touched/ touches a human!

The only geography where I have come across this "interpretation" is the United States.

And it's wrong.

Agreed with all the above. There is no reference in law to preventing a QTI if the ball strikes an object (for example fence, advertising hoarding, seats etc.) No concept of in or outside of the field of play either. As long as it does not touch a person, for me a QTI remains on until it's not (i.e. a line out is formed - when this happens is a matter for a separate thread!).

I think allowing a quick throw after the ball leaves the Playing Enclosure is unnecessary, and the law should be changed.

what if an elderly spectator uses his walking stick to stop the ball?

I had a situation where a ball went into undergrowth, and we all waited about a minute while a player retrieved it, he then jogged back to the touchline with the ball and took a QTI

I didn't allow it , but in Law I was probably wrong

I might be wrong in law, but if a dog ran over and touched the ball I would probably not allow a QTI.

Mark me down if you must.

I often referee at parks where there are trees, bushes or even farmer's fields just outside the enclosure. I tell both captains during my PMB that if the ball disappears from view there will be no QTI's.
