5 Where The Kick Ends [10-4-3] The basic spot is the spot where the kick ends, when R commits a post-scrimmage kick foul: During scrimmage kick plays, other than a try. During a scrimmage kick play in which the ball crosses the expanded neutral zone. Beyond the expanded neutral zone. Before the end of the kick. K does not have possession of the ball when the down ends. R fouls behind the post-scrimmage kick spot are spot fouls.
6 Where The Related Run Ends [10-4-4] The basic spot is the spot where the related run ends for a foul which occurs during a running play. The end of the run is: Where the ball becomes dead in the runner’s possession. Where the runner loses possession if his run is followed by a loose ball. The spot of the catch when the momentum rule is in effect.
