I remember a similar thing happening in France a few years ago. At that time, the referee, after 1-2 seconds of hesitation, decided to award the kick (maybe it was a drop goal). And, when journalists made an interview in the following days, they said the referee was right to award the kick.
Maybe the rule has changed since?

Bath look like they have the core of a very strong all-round team - good news.

Ford is a great signing (along with Jonathan Joseph, Anthony Watson etc.) and will be top-level before long. Has anyone seen how his defensive game is coming along? He's certainly beefed up a bit since leaving his teens, but never seems to get low enough in the tackle.

Law 9.A.2 [a] It's not allowed to hit the ground after its kicked.
