            corresponding spot at the opposite end of the rink, without touching a bowl

Law 6.1:   At the start of each end

Law 6.1.3:   If, after the jack has been delivered but before the first bowl is delivered, a player or the marker finds that the mat line has not been positioned within the distances described in Law 6.1.1, the opposing player should place the mat as described in Law 6.1.1 and re-deliver the jack.
