sorry meant to add.. for me equity means pretty much what the man on the Clapham omnibus that was otherwise disinterested in proceedings would regard as the "right outcome".

If the ball touches someone in touch, it is in touch and therefore nobody gains an advantage, play on, lineout.

The TJ/AR is told to be in touch, except when judging goals.

If a penalty attempt hits the TJ/AR, equity suggest restarting with a drop out - but I am not sure the law allows that.

But the ref was, and the law book gives you the decision.

I can understand giving something if it's there for interpretation, or is unclear, but this isn't. We moan about consistency between referees, and then we produce this decision.
This.

Here you go:
6.A.11 The ball in in-goal touched by a non-player
The referee judges what would have happened next and awards a try or a touch down at the place where the ball was touched.
