WRRA Referee Appointments Information

Ruck Issues

  • If a player in front of the offside line in the ruck unbinds, they cannot pick up the ball. The ball is in the ruck and that player is offside when they unbind. The player must leave the ruck and return behind the offside line before they may ball the ball (in which case they would be acting as the receiver). Law 16.
  • If a player goes to ground as a tackled player, but there is no tackler (by definition under law 15), the tackled player must still let go of the ball and get up before they can play the ball again. A tackle still occurs even if the player affecting the tackle loses contact with the tackled player and remains on their feet.
