    • C.

      Three (3) points

    Correct Answer
    A. One (1) point

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    The match is ended when ...

    • A.

      The hooter sounds

    • B.

      Full time expires and the ball next becomes dead

    • C.

      Full time expires

    Correct Answer
    B. Full time expires and the ball next becomes dead
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Full time expires and the ball next becomes dead." In a match, the game is officially over when the full time expires, meaning the allocated time for the match has run out. However, the match is not considered completely ended until the ball next becomes dead, which means that the ball is out of play or the referee has blown the whistle to stop the game. This ensures that any ongoing play or potential scoring opportunities are brought to a halt before the match is officially concluded.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    When extra time is played to determine a winner, players are required to drop off every ...

    • A.

      One (1) minute

    • B.

      Two (2) minutes

    • C.

      Three (3) minutes

    Correct Answer
    B. Two (2) minutes
    Explanation
    When extra time is played to determine a winner, players are required to drop off every two (2) minutes. This means that after every two minutes of extra time, players are required to leave the field one by one until the required number of players is reached. This rule is implemented to gradually reduce the number of players on the field and create more space for the remaining players to play.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    During extra time teams will drop off players until they are down to ...

    • A.

      One (1) player

    • B.

      Two (2) players

    • C.

      Three (3) players

    Correct Answer
    C. Three (3) players
    Explanation
    During extra time, teams will continue to play with the same number of players as they did during regular time, which is typically eleven players per team. The statement in the question suggests that teams will drop off players until they are down to three players. However, this is not accurate. Teams do not drop off players during extra time; they continue to play with the same number of players as before. Therefore, the given answer of three players is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    When teams are playing extra time the winner is ...

    • A.

      The team that has scored the most touchdowns after five (5)minutes

    • B.

      The team that scores the first touchdown, once both teams have had possession

    • C.

      The team that scores first after all dropping off is completed

    Correct Answer
    B. The team that scores the first touchdown, once both teams have had possession
    Explanation
    In extra time, both teams have an equal opportunity to possess the ball and attempt to score. The team that is able to score the first touchdown after both teams have had possession is declared the winner. This ensures that both teams have had a fair chance to showcase their abilities and determine the outcome of the game.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Three (3) male players and no less than one (1) male player

    • B.

      Five (5) male players and no less than one (1) male player

    • C.

      Any number of male players or any number of female players

    Correct Answer
    A. Three (3) male players and no less than one (1) male player
    Explanation
    A mixed team in the field of play must have a minimum of one male player, meaning that there must be at least one male player present in the team. Additionally, the team can have up to three male players, indicating that the maximum number of male players allowed in the team is three. The answer states that a mixed team may have three male players and no less than one male player, which accurately reflects the requirements for a mixed team in terms of male players.

      Lose possession

    • B.

      Forfeit a penalty touchdown

    • C.

      Be penalised

    Correct Answer
    C. Be penalised
    Explanation
    If a team uses more than the maximum number of players in the field of play, they will be penalized. This means that they will face consequences for their actions, such as a penalty or a disadvantage in the game. The specific penalty may vary depending on the rules and regulations of the sport being played. However, the team will not automatically lose possession or forfeit a penalty touchdown; those options are not mentioned in the answer choices.

      Five (5) touches

    • B.

      Six (6) touches

    • C.

      As many touches as can be effected

    Correct Answer
    B. Six (6) touches
    Explanation
    In the game, a team in possession is entitled to six touches. This means that each player on the team can touch the ball up to six times before they have to pass it to another player or attempt a shot. This rule allows for more control and strategy in the game, as the team has more opportunities to make plays and advance towards the goal.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Substitution box for the first half

      Direction for the first half

    • C.

      Direction and substitution box for the first half

    Correct Answer
    C. Direction and substitution box for the first half
    Explanation
    The captain winning the toss has the choice of direction and substitution box for the first half. This means that they can choose which direction their team will play in during the first half of the game, as well as whether they want to have access to the substitution box during this time. This gives the captain some control over the game strategy and allows them to make decisions that may benefit their team's performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 29.

    • A.

      A tap

    • B.

      A rollball

    • C.

      Either a tap or a rollball

    Correct Answer
    A. A tap
    Explanation
    In this question, the correct answer is "A tap". This means that the match is commenced at the center of halfway with a tap. A tap is a method used to restart play in certain sports, where the ball is placed on the ground and one player lightly strikes it with their hand or foot to put it into play.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    To be onside at a tap defending players must retire ...

    • A.

      Any distance from the mark

    • B.

      Five (5) metres from the mark

    • C.

      Ten (10) metres from the mark

    Correct Answer
    C. Ten (10) metres from the mark
    Explanation
    When defending against a tap, players need to be onside. Being onside means that the defending players must retire ten (10) meters from the mark. This ensures that the defending team is not too close to the attacking team when they take the tap, giving the attacking team enough space to make their move without interference. Being ten meters away from the mark allows for a fair and equal opportunity for both teams to play the game.

    Rate this question:

      The team responsible may pick up the ball and play continues

    • B.

      A change of possession results

    • C.

      A penalty results

    Correct Answer
    B. A change of possession results
    Explanation
    If the ball is dropped to the ground during a game, a change of possession results. This means that the team who did not drop the ball will now have possession and will have the opportunity to continue playing. This is a common rule in many sports, where dropping the ball typically leads to a turnover and the opposing team gaining control.

    Rate this question:

  • 32.

    • A.

      Where the ball comes to rest

    • B.

    • C.

      On the mark

    Correct Answer
    C. On the mark
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "On the mark." This means that the rollball must be performed at the designated mark or spot. It is important to accurately execute the rollball from this specific location in order to maintain fairness and consistency in the game.

    Rate this question:

      Rolling the ball backward between the legs not more than 1 metre

    • B.

    • C.

      Bouncing the ball between the legs

    Correct Answer
    A. Rolling the ball backward between the legs not more than 1 metre
    Explanation
    The correct answer is rolling the ball backward between the legs not more than 1 metre. This means that in the sport of rollball, the player is required to roll the ball in a backward direction, using their legs, and the distance should not exceed 1 metre. This technique is used to control and pass the ball to teammates during the game.

      Be required to perform a rollball

    • C.

      Incur a penalty

    Correct Answer
    A. Lose possession
    Explanation
    If the Dummy Half, who is a player in rugby or rugby league, runs with the ball and gets touched by an opponent or the ball touches another player, they will lose possession of the ball. This means that the opposing team will gain control of the ball and have the opportunity to attack and score points.

    • B.

      When the Dummy Half is in position

    • C.

      Without delay

    Correct Answer
    C. Without delay
    Explanation
    The rollball must be performed "without delay" means that there should be no hesitation or unnecessary waiting before executing the rollball. The player should immediately perform the rollball as soon as they have possession of the ball, without wasting any time. This ensures that the game flows smoothly and there are no unnecessary breaks or delays in the gameplay.

    Correct Answer

This means that the opposing team will be given a penalty at the spot where the infraction occurred, and the penalized player's team will lose possession of the ball.

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Sometimes

    Correct Answer
    B. No

    When defending at the scoreline do the defending players have to have both feet on or behind the line?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    When defending at the scoreline, the defending players are required to have both feet on or behind the line. This means that they cannot step over the line while defending. This rule is in place to ensure fair play and to prevent defenders from gaining an unfair advantage by stepping into the opponent's territory. By having both feet on or behind the line, the defenders maintain a proper defensive position and uphold the rules of the game.

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    If the player in possession of the ball is touched while juggling it but still manages to retain possession, the touch still counts. This means that even if the player is touched by an opponent, as long as they maintain control of the ball, the touch is considered valid and the player can continue with their play.

    Rate this question:

  • 40.

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    When the attacking team takes the ball back behind the five-meter broken line, the defending team is required to move forward off the scoreline and continue moving forward until a touch is about to be made. This rule ensures that the defending team remains engaged in the game and does not simply retreat to their scoreline. By moving forward, the defending team can effectively defend their scoreline and prevent the attacking team from scoring.

    How does play restart when a penalty has been awarded?

    • A.

      Scrum

    • B.

      Tap

    • C.

      Rollball

    Correct Answer
    B. Tap
    Explanation
    When a penalty has been awarded in a game, play restarts with a tap. This means that the team that was awarded the penalty must tap the ball on the ground with their foot and then continue playing. This allows for a quick restart and keeps the game flowing smoothly. The other options, scrum and rollball, are not the correct answers because they do not accurately describe how play restarts after a penalty.

    • A.

      Chase the ball from behind

    • B.

      Stay well away from the ball

    Correct Answer
    C. Set five (5) metres at the rollball for the defending team
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to set five (5) meters at the rollball for the defending team. This means that when the attacking team performs a rollball, the defending team must retreat five meters before they can make a touch. This rule helps to create space and ensure fair play by giving the attacking team enough room to execute their plays effectively. It also prevents the defending team from gaining an unfair advantage by being too close to the rollball.

      Being in a good position before blowing the whistle for the penalty

    • B.

      Staying well away from the ball so players have lots of room

    • C.

      Not setting five (5) metres when the play speeds up

    Correct Answer
    A. Being in a good position before blowing the whistle for the penalty
    Explanation
    A referee needs to be in a good position before blowing the whistle for a penalty in order to have a clear view of the play and make accurate decisions. This allows them to assess any fouls or infringements that may have occurred and ensure fairness in the game. By staying well away from the ball, the referee provides players with ample space to maneuver and avoids obstructing the play. Additionally, not setting a fixed distance of five meters when the play speeds up allows the referee to adapt to the pace of the game and maintain a suitable position for making quick and informed judgments.
