http://ruggachick.com Rugby 101 ep6. Traditionally before a game a coin will be tossed to determine which side will kick off and what direction the teams will be running. This is usually done by the referee although the laws suggest that it should be done by one of the captains. In most cases the home side will elect what side of the coin they will choose, either heads or tails. The winner may choose to kick off or what direction they will run. Weather can be a decisive factor, such as the possibility of having a potentially large advantage over an opponent if there is a high amount of wind, as it would aid the kicking game. Depending on the time of the game, the sun might be a factor in decision, being a potential problem to vision of players, depending on which way they run. Depending on when the toss was performed, both sides will make their way out onto the field. A kick-off will be performed from the center of the field.
