In every sport that we have play, there are rules behind these sports. With these rules,
the sport that we play will be safer and the player will have a sportsmanship behaviour instead
of turning the game into a war zone. In rugby, there are lots of rules, one of it is line out. A line
out is called by the referee when the ball has gone through the touchline. Each team forms a
single line parallel to and half a metre from the mark of touch on their side of the lineout
between the five-metre and 15-metre lines. The gap between the lines must be maintained until
the ball is thrown in. Below are the figures of the line out of the player.

Figure 1: The position of the line out must formed by the players.

Figure 2: The scrum-half will throw the ball to in straight along the mark of touch.
Players in the lineout must not jump or be lifted or supported before the ball has left the hands
of the scrum-half and each team must have only one receiver. If the ball is not thrown straight,
there will be a sanction; there will be option given to the opposite team, lineout or scrum. If
lineout was chosen and the ball still not thrown straight, a scrum is awarded to the originally
team that throw the ball.
Secondly, scrum is one of the rules in rugby. A scrum is formed in the scrum zone at a
mark indicated by the referee after a stoppage which has been caused by a minor infringement
of the Laws such as a forward pass or knock on or the ball becoming unplayable in a ruck or
maul.. A team must not have fewer than five players in the scrum. Below are the figure of
scrum formed by player.

Figure 3: The scrum that formed by the player.

The props bind to the hooker. The hooker binds with both arms. This can be either over or
under the arms of the props. The locks bind with the props immediately in front of them and
with each other. All other players in the scrum bind on a lock’s body with at least one arm.
Then both team will face each other, either side of and parallel to the middle line. When both
sides are square, stable and stationary, the referee calls “crouch”. Then the front-rows then
adopt a crouched position if they have not already done so. Their heads and shoulders are no
lower than their hips, a position that is maintained for the duration of the scrum. When both
sides are square, stable and stationary, the referee calls “bind”. Then each loose-head prop
binds by placing the left arm inside the right arm of the opposing tight-head prop. Each prop
binds by gripping the back or side of their opponent’s jersey. When both sides are square, stable
and stationary, the referee calls “set”. Only then may the teams engage, completing the
formation of the scrum and creating a tunnel into which the ball will be thrown. When both
sides are square, stable and stationary, the referee signals to the scrum-half
to throw in the ball. The scrum-half must throws in the ball from the chosen side outside the
tunnel without any delay.
Apart from that another rule in rugby is ruck. A ruck is formed if the ball is on the
ground and one or more players from each team who are on their feet close around it. Players
must not handle the ball in the ruck, and must use their feet to move the ball or drive over it so
that it emerges at the team’s hindmost foot, at which point it can be picked up. Below are figure
of a ruck formed by the player.

Figure 4: A ruck formed by the player.

Players must not pick the ball up with their legs, intentionally collapse a ruck or jump on top
of it, intentionally step on another player and fall over the ball as it is coming out of a ruck.
Otherwise the referee will give penalty to the opposite team. Player must on feet to play the
