Know The Game - Smart thinking from the 22 kick off

Know The Game - Smart thinking from the 22 kick off

Check out this piece of smart thinking by Bobby Joubert of the Griquas which resulted in a try against the Sharks in this years Currie Cup match in Kimberley.

From the 22 kickoff the ball heads out on the full. Joubert who catches it has one foot out when he does so. This means that the ball is ruled as going straight out of bounds.

Since it was a dropout, it's the same as kicking out on the full in normal play outside your 22. Therefore, the lineout is upfield from where it was dropped out.

Wide awake Joubert goes out of bounds to run up to where the lineout is to take place, throws in the quick-lineout and through some quality ball exchanges, it's trytime against the bemused Sharks.

Wonderful knowledge of the laws results in a try. Great to see players rewarded for smart rugby and a lesson to all - know the game and you will have that extra edge over your opponent.
