Inside Rugby

This post is just a brief manuel or instruction book on how to play rugby. This sport is very common in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Here are some of the basic rules of rugby:

1. The ball must be passed backwards

2. There must be 15 players on the field and 7 reserves

3. You are not aloud to dive over a ruck for the ball.

4. Tackles are to be under the shoulder

5. A try is 5 points and a conversion is 2 points

6. Knock-ons are when the ball is knocked forward

7. Scrums have all 8 fowards

8. There must be 7 backs and 8 forwards.

9. When the ball is out a line-out happens

10. line-outs include all 8 forwards

11. Hookers through the ball in

12. The Halfback feeds the ball in a scrum

So now you now some of the basic rules of rugby. Why don't you try it out sometime, and who know, maybe soon you'll be out there playing for YOUR COUNTRY.

You may think this is just a joke, or even just a plain old brain teaser. But I think it's to help draw maps. You see, we are going to make a treasure map, Previously, we have been practising , such as drawing maps from school to our house. Even our ICT (Information, communication and technology) lab. But the funny thing is that we had to sit at our computers and draw Mrs Tele'a ( Our Teacher between 2:00- 3:00). At first I thought it was a joke and that we were going to be told to go on our blog. But we weren't, we were told to draw her from the angle we were sitting at. Weird Huh? Anyway I knew I was a goner because drawing is not my thing. My Perspective was easy. My drawing actually turned out to be pretty good. I guess this activity was good if we want to be Map makers
