The ball is put through and it is rolling towards the goal line just inside the pen area (on the far side parallel to the sideline). A striker running hard towards it slides and manages to kick it on the slide and cross it in. A defender is also running fast towards the ball on a 45deg angle to the striker . The defender slides to block the cross. He manages to get a foot on the ball, the deflection finds its way to the keeper and the ball is never out of play. The momentum of the slides takes both the defender and the striker well outside of the field of play (wet turf) behind the goal line where they collide . What does the ref do if
A. the defender's studs make contact with the striker (say 3 meters outside of field of play) in a rough way.
B. The tackle is a good tackle but the striker is not too happy and punches the defender while still outside the field of play.
The location of the free kicks is any given please.
A. free kick of some description from where the tackle began (our ref on the w/e had at go at us at start of game about sliding cuz of wet condns) B. striker sent off and free kik from where the tackle began.
Ok the first couple were pretty silly. I just wanted to cover all bases. Start of the slide, ummm, what if there was no slide and the momentum of the run caused the collision outside the FOP. Defender touches the ball, no offence committed there. And the other one is already outside the FOP anyway. So where do we place the ball for a free kick?
Also in case B has the striker punches the defender outside of the FOP. Nothing to do with the tackle as far as refereeing goes.

I would say yellow or red to the defender depending how rough the contact is.
Red card for striker throwing the punch
As the ball had originally made its way to the goalkeeper and i am assuming goalkeeper still has possession of the ball i would say its a drop balll inside the penalty box but the ref should order and both teams SHOULD comply to an uncontested drop ball to allow keeper to "regain possession".

Lets move back to other threads where our efforts are appeciated more
So if my sweeper has the ball and no player within 15 metres then a player collapses other end of field,play is stopped and player is treated.Ref could restart play without a drop ball by telling the sweeper to play on from where the ball was when play was stopped and ensuring no player is within 15 metres.
Yes the question is slide and the answer should assume slide. When is said what if it wasn't a slide, it was just that, a "what if" to make a point that i don't think "where the tackle started" is right.
And I appreciate everyone's input to any thread i start.
As for the right answer. I'm not 100% sure (specifically for part A) but i think hardwork is right on both counts except for the part of the referee ordering an uncontested drop ball. LOTG has a set procedure on the drop ball and the ref can't change it. Its up to the players to show sportsmanship.
The ref blows the whistle to stop the game. The drop ball takes place wherever the ball was when the game was stopped. Unless inside the Goal Area in which case it would be on the closest point on the 6yard line (the part parallel to the goal line).
The defender slides, gets the ball, slides of the field and then there is a collision with the attacker three meters off the FOP. You would expect the attacker to be the ground as well, otherwise he should have been able to avoid the contact.
A. It is completely accidental as far as I can see from the question so play on. A possible word at the next stoppage.
B. The Attacker is sent for violent conduct. The restart is a drop ball where the ball was located when play was stopped.
I can see why you came up with the play on answer for part A, perhaps I could have explained it better. What I meant was that the defender did commit an offence (say deliberately studed the opponent after getting the ball first) but the actual place of the offence was outside of the FOP however it was part of the general play in opposed to the punch which had nothing to do with playing the game.
