The children are being introduced to rucking, mauling and scrumming.  Just to remind you what Toby said at the start of the season about the maul: 

  • A maul forms when a tackler and ball carrier are joined by 1 other player from either team. The ref should call ‘Maul’.
  • Only 2 players from each side, including the tackler and the ball carrier are allowed in a maul. This is going to be difficult to ref!
  • The ref will allow a maul to last for 5 seconds and then call ‘use it’
  • If the ball is not passed out of the maul then it is a turnover ball.
