### How many points is a drop goal worth when playing rugby?

• A.

3 Points

• B.

5 Points

• C.

A. 3 Points
Explanation
A drop goal in rugby is worth 3 points. This is when a player kicks the ball through the goalposts during open play, without the ball touching any other player or structure. It is a difficult and skillful technique that is often used as a last resort to score points when a team is unable to break through the opposition's defense. The value of 3 points reflects the significance and level of difficulty associated with successfully executing a drop goal.

• A.

Fifteen

• B.

Seven

• C.

Eight

• D.

Ten

C. Eight
Explanation
In rugby union play, a side typically has eight forwards. Forwards are players who are usually larger and stronger, and their main role is to win possession of the ball and provide it to the backs. They are involved in scrums, lineouts, and rucks, which are crucial aspects of the game. Having eight forwards allows for a balanced and effective team structure, ensuring both offensive and defensive capabilities on the field.

### In rugby union, how is a game restarted after the ball goes out of bounds?

• A.

A Maul

• B.

A Scrum

• C.

A Line-Out

• D.

A Try

C. A Line-Out
Explanation
A Line-Out is the correct answer for how a game is restarted after the ball goes out of bounds in rugby union. In a Line-Out, players from both teams form two parallel lines perpendicular to the touchline, and the team that did not touch the ball last throws it back into play. This allows for a fair and structured restart of the game, ensuring that both teams have an equal opportunity to contest for possession of the ball.

• B.

Mark

• C.

D. Sin-Bin
Explanation
In rugby union, when a player commits a yellow card offense, they must go to the sin-bin. The sin-bin is a designated area where players are temporarily sent off the field as a disciplinary measure. This allows the team to continue playing with a numerical advantage while the player serves their time in the sin-bin. Once the time is up, the player can return to the field and rejoin the game.

Explanation
In rugby union, a try is worth 5 points. A try is scored when a player successfully grounds the ball in the opponent's in-goal area.

• A.

55 Minutes

• B.

60 Minutes

• C.

40 Minutes

• D.

30 Minutes

C. 40 Minutes
Explanation
In a game of rugby, a half refers to the duration of each period of play. The correct answer is 40 minutes because a rugby match consists of two halves, each lasting 40 minutes. This allows for a total playing time of 80 minutes, excluding any stoppage time or additional time added by the referee.

### How many points are awarded for a successful drop goal in rugby union play?

• A.

5 Points

• B.

A successful drop goal in rugby union play is awarded 3 points. In rugby, a drop goal is scored when a player kicks the ball successfully through the goalposts during open play by dropping it onto the ground and then kicking it as it bounces up. This is different from a try, which is worth 5 points, and a conversion kick, which is worth 2 points. Therefore, the correct answer is 3 points.

• B.

• C.

C. Mark
Explanation
In rugby, when a player catches the ball in a defensive position, it is called a "mark". This is a play where the player catches the ball cleanly while still within their own team's 22-meter area. Once a mark is called, the player has the option to either kick the ball for distance or take a free kick without any opposition. It is a strategic move that allows the team to regain control of the ball and potentially gain field position.

A. Two Points
Explanation
A conversion kick in a game of rugby is worth two points. After a team scores a try, they have the opportunity to kick the ball through the goal posts.

### Which rugby position is reserved for the fastest runner on the team?

• A.

Wing

• B.

Loose Forward

• C.

Explanation
The rugby position reserved for the fastest runner on the team is the Wing. Wings are typically positioned on the outer edges of the backline and are responsible for scoring tries by utilizing their speed and agility to outrun the opposition's defense. Their primary role is to receive the ball from the scrum-half or fly-half and use their speed to evade tackles and make try-scoring runs down the sidelines. As the fastest player on the team, the Wing is a key attacking weapon and often plays a crucial role in the team's success.

• A.

Scrum, Drop Goal

• B.

Try, Pitch

D. Try, Penalty Kick
Explanation
In rugby, scoring points can be achieved through two ways: a try and a penalty kick. A try is awarded when a player successfully touches the ball to the ground behind the opponent's goal line. It is worth five points. After scoring a try, the team is given the opportunity to kick for an additional two points through a penalty kick. A penalty kick is awarded when the opposing team commits a foul, and the kicking team can choose to kick the ball through the goalposts to earn three points.

• A.

### Is [your statement here] true or false?

• A.

True

• B.

• 26.

### UNCONTESTED SCRUMS: Scrums will become uncontested if either team cannot field a suitably trained front row or if the referee so orders.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Uncontested scrums occur when either team is unable to field a properly trained front row or if the referee decides to order it. This means that if a team does not have enough players who are capable of playing in the front row or if there are concerns about player safety, the scrums will become uncontested. In uncontested scrums, the two teams do not compete for the ball and the team with the put-in is guaranteed possession. Therefore, the statement "Scrum will become uncontested if either team cannot field a suitably trained front row or if the referee so orders" is true.

Rate this question:

• 27.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Explanation
Minor cuts and abrasions that do not involve a significant amount of blood should be addressed during breaks in play for other reasons. This suggests that the focus should be on treating more severe injuries that require immediate attention, rather than interrupting the game for minor injuries. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

### SUBSTITUTED PLAYERS REJOINING THE MATCH: If a player is substituted, that player may only return to play when replacing an injured front row player.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When a player is substituted in a rugby match, they can only rejoin the game if they are replacing an injured front row player. This rule is in place to ensure the safety and well-being of the players, as front row positions require specific skills and techniques that are crucial for the scrums and set pieces. Allowing substituted players to only rejoin when replacing an injured front row player ensures that the integrity of these positions is maintained and that the game can continue without compromising player safety.

These officials are responsible for assisting the main referee in making decisions and enforcing the rules of the game.

This helps ensure fair play and maintain the integrity of the game.
