Question re: Offside from a kick

This question was taken from RugbyRefs.com

– red #10 is on his own 22m line as he kicks ahead
– his winger, #14, right over in the tramlines is 3m in front of the kicker, but disregards this and chases after the ball
– blue full back collects ball on his own 10m line, and is tackled by the offside red #14 on the halfway line
– blue have option of a PK or a scrum where the ball was kicked

Where is mark for the PK? Way over by the touchline where #14 originally failed to stop when the ball was kicked, or where he first interfered with play, ie where he was when the the ball was gathered and he was fast approaching, around the centre of the pitch?
