FIREBIRDS FALL FLAG RUGBY socials- NOV 30, DEC 7, DEC 14

We are hosting 3 nights of social Flag Rugby on Wednesdays in December as a complement to our Monday night tackle rugby practices as recruiting events for new prospects and to have a bit of fun before the winter holiday break.

All are welcome to join in the fun.   New prospects are welcome to give rugby a try, existing players are encouraged to bring out a friend!

Co-ed teams will be made up on the night based on who shows up to play.

FORMAT:  Each games is 10 min long, then we'll rotate and get new players on the field.  Everyone will get a few games each night.  We will be playing from 6pm to 8pm each night.

FLAG RUGBY RULES

  • Teams of 7 players (+/- depending on numbers).
  • Play is started with a free pass and defense back 5m.   Start of game or after a score is at the center of the field; from an infraction is where the infraction occurred; 5m in from the sideline if the player ran out of bounds.
  • When a flag is pulled by a defender, the attacker must pass the ball within 3 seconds or 3 steps.   Flag is handed to the attacker and then both players may rejoin play. 
  • The flagged attacker is allowed to pass the ball as quickly as they want to after being flagged.
  • When a flag is pulled, an imaginary offside line across the field is created at that spot.  All defenders have to retreat past the offside line to be able to rejoin play. 
  • Forward pass or ball dropped forward is a turn-over. 
  • Running out of bounds is a turn-over.
  • Running behind a team-mate is obstruction an is a turn-over.
  • Ball dropped backwards is play on.
  • No limit on the number of flag pulls. 
  • If a defender picks up a dropped ball, or intercepts a pass they are instantly on attack and can keep playing.
  • A try is scored by grounding the ball over the try line in the in-goal area.  A try is worth 5 pts.
