The maul

Check that:

  • The ball carrier remains fully bound
  • Players joining the maul do so from behind the feet of the hindmost player and by binding onto a teammate
  • Players who are not participating in the maul remain behind their offside line

Watch for:

  • Players who drag opponents out of a maul
  • Players who try to collapse the maul
  • Players charging into the maul
  • Players lifting opponents in the maul
