Rugby is one of the few ball games where the ball cannot be passed forwards.

That means a player moving towards the opposition's dead ball line must pass the ball to a team-mate either along or behind an imaginary line running at right angles to the side of the pitch.

The same principle applies even when players are not passing the ball.

If they fail to catch or pick up the ball cleanly and it travels forward off a hand or arm and hits the ground or another player, it is called a knock-on.

The same applies if a player is tackled and the ball goes forward.

If a player fumbles the ball but catches it before it has hit the ground or another player, it is not a knock-on.

When a knock-on occurs, the referee will stop play and award a scrum to the team which has not knocked on.

If the ball is thrown forward at a line-out, a scrum is awarded 15 metres in from the touchline.

If the referee decides a player has intentionally knocked on or thrown the ball forward, a penalty is awarded to the other team.

And if the referee decides the other team would have scored a try if the intentional knock-on had not taken place, a penalty try is awarded.

The one exception to the knock-on rule is the charge-down.

If a player charges down the ball as an opponent kicks it, it is not a knock-on, even if the ball travels forward.

Rugby union is played by two teams of 15 players.

Although the aim of the game is simple, there are many laws which make can make it hard for the new viewer to keep track of what is going on.


The aim of the game is very simple - use the ball to score more points than the other team.

You can run with the ball, kick it and pass it, but passing forwards is not allowed.

Rugby is a contact sport, so you can tackle an opponent in order to get the ball, as long as you stay within the rules.

There is a referee, aided by two touch judges (one on each side of the pitch), to decide how the rules should be applied during a game.

There are several ways to score points.

  • A try - five points are awarded for touching the ball down in your opponent's goal area.
  • A conversion - two points are added for a successful kick through the goalposts after a try
  • A goal kick - three points are awarded for a penalty kick or drop goal through the posts

If both teams score the same amount of points, or no points are scored, then the match is a draw. In some cases, extra time is played to decide who wins.


A game of rugby union has two periods of 40 minutes each. In international matches the referee will stop the clock for stoppages.

Between the two halves, there is a maximum 10-minute interval, after which both teams change ends.


Before the start of the match, the referee tosses a coin to decide which team will kick off the match.

The captain of the team that wins the toss gets to decide which end he wants to attack first, or whether his side or the opposition will kick off.

The game is started by a place kick or a drop kick from the middle of the halfway line.

The ball must travel forwards at least 10 metres from the kick-off. If it does not, the opposition get the choice of a scrum or line-out on the halfway line, with the advantage of the feed or throw.

If a penalty or drop goal is scored during the game, play is restarted with a drop kick from the halfway line. The team that has conceded the points takes the kick.

New Zealand and Australia have played out a bruising encounter in Brisbane with The All Blacks eventually running out 28 - 24 winners.

The Wallabies dominated the opening quarter of the match but still found thmselves 7 - 3 behind after 25 minutes. A 25 minutes which contained 9 penalties and 22 free kicks - And no yellow card.

The rest of the first half was more of the same right up until the dying seconds when Adam Ashley-Cooper crossed for The Wallabies first try. Matt Giteau added the conversion and the Wallabies headed into the sheds 10 - 7 ahead.

Enter the second half and enter The Wallabies at their finest. Dummy runners, missed passes, hard running and James Horwill the econd row try scoring machine crossed outwide for the first try of the second half. Th Wallabies led 15 - 7, Giteau added the conversion and The Wallabies led 17 - 7.

The All Blacks are nothing but determined and Tony Woodcock ran 20 metres outwide to show just how determined they are, Carter added the conversion and the score was back to 17 - 14 in favour of The Wallabies.

The match ebbed and flowed for the next ten minutes with no one able to take control.

New Zealand took the lead through a Try to Weepu after a simle wrap around, the Kiwis were fortunate that they did not give away a penalty at the previous ruck. This did not matter as Carter added the extras and New Zealand led 21 - 17. Within 5 minutes Dan Carter crossed for a Try, he added the conversion and The All Blacks led 28 - 17.

Australia crossed for a Try with a minute to go through Ryan Cross to set up the grandstand finish, Giteau converted and with a minute to go the score was 28 - 24 to the All Blacks.

New Zealand were able to run down the clock to win both the Tri Nations and The Bledisloe cup.

Whether driving kids to matches or washing the club's shirts, there are many ways you can help.

And it's not just the team and the children that benefit. Volunteering can be a sociable role where you meet new people and learn new skills.

Most sports clubs are run by volunteers and require all kinds of assistance to keep them running smoothly.

You don't even have to be sporty.

Many clubs are eager to recruit volunteers with a range of experience or skills. You may be able to help with:

  • Catering - From pouring half-time drinks to preparing sandwiches for a away match lunch.

  • Transport - Kids need ferrying about. Maybe set up a transport pool so everybody shares the load.

  • Assistant coaching - Equipment might need to be set up. Coaches always need help to run sessions.

  • Administration - Who's available for the next game? You could organise it all by phone or email. Does the team need to register for a league? Maybe you can write the letter.

  • Finance - Has the league subscription fee to a league been paid? Does cash need to be put aside for a special trip? Those with number-crunching skills can help

  • Fundraising - Can you organise sponsorship for the team through your work? Can you run events such as sponsored matches or car boot sales? 
  • So why not volunteer to help out?
  • Find out more from our Volunteer Opportunities with our Coach.

    En yta som motsvarar en normal handbolls plan. Kan spelas inom- eller utomhus.


    5 spelare på plan samt 3 reserver, sk. ”flygande byte”, men endast när bollen är död. Utbytta spelare får bytas in igen senare under samma match.


    Gruppspel: 2 x 5 minuter

    Finalspel: 2 x 7 minuter


    Spelet går ut på att erövra motståndarnas mark, vilket symboliseras genom att lägga ned bollen i motståndarnas försöksområde , detta kallas att göra försök. När detta sker får det anfallande laget 5 poäng. Med att lägga ned bollen, menas att spelaren kontrollerat lägger ned bollen i försöksområdet, alltså inte släpper eller kastar ner bollen.


    Spelet startas med att ett lag genomför ett avspel, vilket lag som skall börja avgörs genom lottning.

    Efter ett försök, återstartas spelet med ett avspel från det laget som släppt in” försöket.

    Alla avspel görs från mittpunkten.

    Vid all form av spel med bollen, måste bollen spelas med händerna och passas bakåt eller sidledes. Spelare får springa med och passa bollen utan att ha blivit touchad eller när spelare är touchad en ( 1 ) gång.

    I touch får spelaren springa med bollen tills spelaren blir touchad två ( 2 ) gånger av en eller två motståndare. Vid två ( 2 ) touch går bollen över till motståndarlaget. Så länge spelare är touchad en ( 1 ) gång får han/hon fortsätta att springa med eller passa bollen, spelaren får dock ej göra försök. Samma försvarande spelare får dock ej toucha samma attackerande spelare två gånger i följd.

    Om en spelare blir touchad och sedan passar bollen, försvinner den touch spelaren har och nästa gång spelaren får bollen kan spelaren göra försök, eller åter bli touchad en ( 1 ) gång, utan att det händer något.

    Om ett lag under spel, tappar bollen – passar framåt – trampar på eller utanför sidlinjen – eller på något sätt vidrör bollen med fötterna. Skall bollen “gå över” till det icke felande laget. Spelet återstartas med ett avspel från det ställe där felet begicks.

    It is the role of the VRS Rugby Disciplinary Committee to deal with discipline cases where our school player has been Sent Off, or cited.

    It is an important role and must be a fair and effective process.

    It should take case as soon as possible after a test match, trainee pass and every effort to get the best results of our team.

    One of the most important skills for me in rugby is discipline.

    You can win or lose a game based on the discipline of your team or an individual player.

    I watch a lot of sport and it always amazes me, even among top level professional sportsmen, the lack of self control the players have.

    I would like to think the rugby players generally are role models in the way that they control themselves in a highly charged atmosphere.

    perhaps it will take more time...but we will be there, thats for sure!
