Correct Play the Ball

Association officials have noticed an emerging trend across all grades that after a tackle, many players are levering themselves up off the ground with the ball still on the ground. ¬†The Laws of Rugby League state after being tackled the ball carrier must regain his feet with the ball in his possession. ¬†Players and officials are reminded not to “plant” the ball after being tackled & that they must rise with the ball in order to play it correctly in accordance with the rules.
