Rugby 101 - Open style

8 years ago142 views Rugby 101 - Open style That is when a player, in most cases the scrum half, takes possession of the ball at a ruck, maul, scrum, line outs or throws a long pass along the back line. Then an overlap is formed. That is when the ball flows beautifully in the back line. As each back receives the ball, they pass it again immediately. The aim is for the attacking team to out number the defensive team, as the ball carrier will try and run through a perceived gab. If the ball carrier can not avoid being tackled, they will wait to oblige defenders to commit a tackle, before passing the ball to a team mate AKA an offload. If there is no-one to receive the ball, a tackle will set up a ruck and the team will recycle another phase of play.
