    Odd try

    Offside due to the bounce?

    Off of a kickoff red are kicking to blue. Blue 10 attempts to catch the ball on the 22, he fumbles it backwards behind the line, at this point the ball bounces behind the line, and then forward to a blue player ahead of blue 10, what do you call?

    What is a teammate?

    I never got this, cause if I bring on a tee, and an American style holding thing, it's the same as someone holding it.

    Question about played at

    I understand the concept of not played and played at, but came across a situation last night at a touch rugby league game. Ball is kicked a player attempts not to pull out of playing the ball, which causes him to hit the ball. So he's attempting to avoid playing the ball however, this causes...

    Scrum advantage

    Rugby League If a team were to knock the ball on before time expires, with the opposition picking it up, playing past time expired only to go knock it on down-field, not gaining any advantage. Do we go back for the scrum? Thanks Cody
