The Laws of School Rugby


On which side of the scrum should the scrum-half stand? What is a brake foot? And, can you score a try while in touch? (Spoiler... you can 😉).

Alex and Tim were at Noord-Suid 2023 and spoke to some players about the laws of rugby. Specifically, they discuss school variations and the proposed tackle height law. The Breakdown Rugby podcast team joins from the UK to shed some light on this and Tim sets Alex a Champions Quiz 🧠.
