• C.

1 Point

• D.

### How many forwards does a side have in rugby union play?

• A.

Fifteen

• B.

Seven

• C.

Eight

• D.

C. Eight
Explanation
In rugby union play, a side typically has eight forwards. The forwards are responsible for the physical aspects of the game, such as scrummaging, lineouts, and rucking. They are typically bigger and stronger players who provide the team with stability and power in the set pieces. Having eight forwards allows for a balanced distribution of players on the field, with the remaining seven players being backs who focus more on speed, agility, and handling skills.

• C.

A Line-Out

• D.

A Try

Correct Answer
C. A Line-Out
Explanation
After the ball goes out of bounds in rugby union, the game is restarted with a Line-Out. A Line-Out is a method of restarting play where players from both teams line up 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 controlled restart of the game, ensuring that both teams have an equal opportunity to regain possession of the ball.

Explanation
When a player has committed a yellow card offense in rugby union, they must go to the Sin-Bin. The Sin-Bin is a designated area on the sideline where players who have received a yellow card are temporarily sent off the field. This serves as a punishment for their offense and allows the opposing team to have a numerical advantage for a specific period of time. Once the time in the Sin-Bin is complete, the player can return to the game.

In rugby, when a player catches the ball in a defensive position, it is known as a "mark". This allows the player who made the catch to call for a fair catch, meaning they cannot be tackled immediately. The player is then given the option to either kick for touch, take a free kick, or play on. The mark is a strategic move that gives the catching team an advantage in terms of gaining territory or setting up an attacking play.

Wingers are positioned on the outer edges of the field and their main role is to receive the ball and use their speed to outpace the opposition's defense. They are often the ones who score the most tries, as their speed allows them to exploit gaps in the defense and make significant attacking contributions to the team.

### What are two ways to score points in rugby?

• A.

Scrum, Drop Goal

• B.

Try, Pitch

• C.

Explanation
In rugby, scoring points can be achieved through a try and a penalty kick. A try is scored when a player grounds the ball in the opponent's in-goal area, earning five points. Following a try, the scoring team has the opportunity to kick for an additional two points with a penalty kick. This involves kicking the ball through the goalposts and above the crossbar. Therefore, the correct answer is "Try, Penalty Kick."

Uncontested scrums occur when either team is unable to field a properly trained front row or when the referee decides to order uncontested scrums.

Explanation
If a player is concussed or suspected to have a concussion during a match, they must be immediately and permanently taken out of the game. This is referred to as "Recognise and Remove."
