Mauling

During the maul, the ball carrier should:
  • strive to maintain forward momentum and make the ball available to team mates
Arriving players should:
  • support the ball carrier, attempt to secure the ball by ripping or driving beyond the ball
  • be bound together in a safe and legal manner with head and shoulders above the hips
  • drive forward in a safe and strong body position
  • move the ball, or the person on the ball, to the back of the maul once additional support arrives
Once the ball is at the rear of the maul, the ball carrier can either:
  1. continue driving
  2. leave the maul
  3. pass to a team mate
