Rugby is about how to obtain possession of the ball and score as many points as possible by carrying, passing, kicking and grounding the ball.
The Game Starts when a player kicks the rugby ball from the halfway line. The team in possession of the ball advances towards the try line by running forward and passing the ball from one player to another.
The ball must be passed laterally or behind and not passed infront. Not allowed. The other team will try and prevent the team in possession from moving the ball down the field and scoring a try. (this is grounding the ball over the try line – Enz Zone line)
The other team will try and grab the ball-carrier and tackle them to the ground.. The ball-carrier must then pass or release the ball allowing both teams to contest possession.
If the ball goes out of play, then a lineout is called to restart the game. When there is some committed foul, the game will begin with a scrum, free kick or penalty kick depending on the foul committed.
How to Score in Rugby
Try (5 points)
Grounding the ball over the try line.
Conversion (2 points)
Kicking the goal over the goal posts if a try has been scored.
Field Goal (3 points)
A drop kick over the goal posts when in the field of play.

The dimensions of a proper rugby field is 100m long and 69m wide.
You can find two in-goal areas at each end of the field and the two sidelines which are known as touchlines.
At each end of the field there are goal posts that are 5.6m apart with a crossbar set at 3m giving the goal the shape of the letter H.
Lines on the Rugby Field
This line is where the game starts and restarts after tries and goals are scored.
This line is on both sides of the halfway line. The kick restart from halfway must go at least this far.
This line is 22 metres towards the halfway line from each goal line. Play is restarted from these lines if the ball has been pressed down by the defending team or the ball has crossed or touched the Dead-Ball Line or Touch In-Goal Line.
This line can also be called the “try line” and you can find these on each end of the field. If the ball get’s grounded inside this area then team will score a try.
This line is at the end of the in-goal area. If the ball touches or goes beyond this line the ball is considered out of play.

There seems to be concern in the ranks about the future of Super Rugby with dire predictions about next year’s set-up.
Publicly, lNew Zealand’s teams are resigned to toeing the party line and accepting that the addition of a team from Argentina, Japan and another in South Africa is good for the game.
The realism is that the current system has seen a seen a declining trend around attendance.
In 2006, South Africa posted an average Super Rugby crowd of 34,000, Australia 24,000 and New Zealand 22,000.
By 2012, those numbers had dropped across the board – South Africa were down to 28,000, Australia 20,000 and New Zealand 16,000. I would imagine that the numbers for 2014 would be lower again.
Week one of Super Rugby kicked off with a sea of empty seats. With the Black Caps playing in Christchurch the following day, the Crusaders were resigned to a poor turnout. They got one.
It was the same in Auckland, where the Blues weren’t able to host the Chiefs at Eden Park. They knew it wouldn’t be a great crowd at North Harbour, and they were right.
The problem is the core product !
TV has been allowed to dictate the playing schedules; jumping from 12 to 15 teams has diluted the quality of the overall playing pool; the format has suffered from not being a true round-robin; the rules remain unfathomable and inconsistently applied; stadiums, with the exception of the Forsyth Barr, don’t have cover; the food in stadiums is mostly crap and expensive and maybe most damaging has been that the biggest name players have been allowed to drift in, drift out and skip the bits they don’t fancy.
Add all that together and that explains the 30 per cent drop in average crowds since 2006.
The actual rugby is great. Unfortunately with TV controlling the money and the terms of scheduling we are only going to see a lot more empty seats.
On a better note , at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast we see good response from game patrons wanting luxury accommodation close to the stadium.
We are running strong reservations for accommodation at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast. The full house sign is burning bright at the moment. There is the ICC Cricket World Cup match next weekend in Auckland with New Zealand v Australia at Eden Park. Both teams look good so there will be a strong patriotic atmosphere around the stadium.
Other news about Auckland hosting the challenger series of the Americas Cup is welcome. Now we just have to wait for Team New Zealand to solve the public relations mess they find themselves in over the axing of the current skipper……..!
