Maul (obstruction)

  • Players supporting the ball winner (carrier) at kickoffs and lineouts must do so from alongside or behind the ball carrier
  • Players doing so from in front of the ball winner (carrier) should be penalised for obstruction
  • Both the ball carrying side and the defenders are to be refereed equally at the Maul. A player who is caught up in the Maul and makes his way through the middle of the formation is not obliged to leave the Maul
