PRINCIPLES TO FOLLOW:

  • SCORING:
    • Players must cross the line and touch the ball down on the ground.
    • If player is tipped just before the try line, he/she must go back 1 metre to start the game again.
    • One point is awarded for a try.
    • Two points is awarded for a woman scoring a try.

TIPPING:

    • Defenders must tip with both handstogether at the same time on the attacker , the defender must shout ”tip”
    • The defender must immediately go back 1 metre to the defence line; if the defender does not retreat then they are off side and are out of the game. ATTACKERS:
    • After being tipped the ball carrier has three (3) seconds to pass the ball between their legs, they must stop running and go to where they were tipped otherwise a free pass is awarded to the opposition.
    • Once the ball has been passed between the attackers legs it must be picked up by another attacker within 5 seconds otherwise the opposition can attack the ball.
    • The attacker that lifts the ball between their team mate’s legs can run with the ball but can not score; they must pass the ball.

.

  • DEFENDERS:
    • Having made a tip, the defender must not obstruct the ball carrier - the defender must go back 1 metre

.

  • TAP & PASS:
    • A “Tap & Pass” at the start of the game is taken from the centre of the field. A player taps the ball off his/her foot (ball must leave the hands) and passes the ball on the referee’s signal “play”. The ball must be passed once to start. A player cannot run his/herself without first passing.
    • When an infringement occurs on or behind the goal line, a tip & pass is taken 5 metres out from the goal line by the non-offending team to create some space!
    • Tap & Passes are awarded for the following:
      • All penalties / infringements.
      • Re-starts
      • Forward passes
      • Out of bounds
      • Off-side
      • Knock-on
      • Diving on the ball on the ground ( players must be on their feet)
  • OFF SIDE:
    • From a Tap & Pass, defenders must be 1 metres back.
    • Defenders cannot move forward until the ball has been passed.

.

  • DROPPING THE BALL:
    • If the ball is dropped backwards on the ground, it is play on.
    • However if the ball is dropped forward on the ground, it is deemed a “knock-on” and a turnover is awarded to opposition. Always allow “advantage” from a knock-on, however if there is none a tap & pass awarded.

 

  • KICKING:
    • There is NO kicking of the ball in tag rugby.

.

  • ATTACKING PLAY:
    • Deliberate diving to score a try is not allowed, players scoring a try must be on their feet.
    • Attacking players are allowed to pirouette or swivel to avoid being tagged. However if the player make contact with a defender, it results in penalty against them.

       

  • GOOD CONDUCT:
  • Any over zealous play by a player will be given a yellow card and will be out of the game for 5 min. They will be replaced by one of the subs on there team.
  • Any abuse to the referee’s or any other member of the linemen will mean the player will be given a yellow card and will be out of the game for 5 min. They will be replaced by one of the subs on there team.
  • If a player who gets two yellow cards in the tournament they will not be allowed to compete in the next game.
  • Any team packed with rugby players will start each game with the opposition been given a 2 try head start
  • All teams must have two women on the pitch at all times, all teams must have three women on the panel.
  • NUMBERS OF TIPS:
    • To begin with for beginners you can play unlimited tips until the players learn all the rules.
    • You can then limit the number of tips per team according to their playing ability.
    • ITRA recommends five ‘5’ tips to be allowed, and if by the 6 th tip a team has not scored, it is a turnover.
    • Encourage your players to hold the ball in both hands when running. This will a) allow them to pass easier, b) less likely to drop the ball and
    • Any player from broken play who runs backwards or crosses in front of his own player without passing will be penalised (too often players have limited vision and tend to eat up valuable space on the pitch by running backwards or across their own players and running up a blind alley so to speak! Run straight, draw the defender and time your pass.)

        TIP RUGBY GAMES TO WARN UP: In a grid 10m x 10m with 8 players (4 V4)

    • Stuck in the mud : one person is ‘on’, he/she has the ball and has to gently touch each person in the grid with the ball. When a player is touched he/she has to stand still with their legs apart. Another player crawls through the legs to ‘free’ that player. Alternatively one player can pull off the tags of other players they are trying to catch, same principal applies. Remember to rotate the person who is ‘on’ every minute.
    • How many passes in 30 sec’s : One person in each group is the ‘counter’; each group has to pass the ball around fro 30 sec’s counting how many passes. If they drop the ball, they start counting from zero again. You can introduce a rule that when you receive the ball, you cannot pass back to that same paler!
    • How many tips in 30 sec’s : One person in each group is ‘on’. He/she has to tip as many people as they can in 30 sec’s. Everybody else has to dodge the defender.
    • Cats & Rats: Pair everybody up, and stand them in 2 lines back to back with each partner facing away from one another and 1 step apart. Give one line the name ‘CATS’ and the other line ‘RATS’. Which ever name you call (cat or rats) that line has to sprint and try to avoid being tipped by the partner standing 1 step behind them. You can have both lines, kneeling down to make it harder to get away.
