Balls, Cones


  • One player from each team must stand behind the try line at the end of the pitch and acts as the 'try scorer'. The attacking team must try and get the ball to their try scorer by means of passing only.
  • If the try scorer drops the pass then no try is awarded and the opposition start with a free pass from the try line
  • Rotate the try scorer after each try
  • If ball is dropped or out of play then the opposition restart the game with a free pass from where the incident occurred. Area up to 30m x 60m, dependent on numbers and capabilities.
