Kick starts and restarts - the receiving team

The receiving team should:
  • as per catching a kicked ball, support the receiving player in the air if necessary (supporters must bring catcher back to ground in a safe manner)
  • either catch the ball or tap it back towards team mates
  • collect tapped ball or to play once the catcher lands – this may involve a contact situation depending on the chase from the kicking team
