Rucking

After the tackle, the ball carrier should:
  • present the ball quickly in the direction of team mates (as far away from the opposition as possible)
Arriving players:
  • should maintain a low, strong, stable body position throughout the ruck. Head and shoulders must be above the hips at all times
  • must join the ruck in a legal manner (from behind the foot of the hindmost team mate in the ruck)
  • should be aware that they may need to clear out any potential threats to the ball
  • should drive beyond the ball to make it more readily available
