So when a ruck is formed the defending team must go straight over the ball carrier to take possession?

Yes
You can not come from the side or back

Also can you strip the ball away when the offensive player is on his feet?

I'm pretty sure you can

Maybe busbeepbeep or others who know can clarify

Yeah, you strip it if the player is on his feet, provided your onside.

I need to bump this thread when I’m actually watching a match. I know I have more questions but can’t think of them at the moment

Posted by etm512 On a throw in I guess a foul is called if a guy doesn't throw it exactly in the middle of the two teams hoisting up their one man? Does the throwing team still try to get the ball more towards their guy? What determines how and when a ball is thrown into a scrum?

Yes they are supposed to zip it down the middle

Also when the ref says 'yes 9'
That's when the fly half (#9) rolls the ball in the middle of the scrum

But just like the line out, guys have learned how to put a little English on the ball

Correct, it has to be down center. It's usually up to the refs discretion.

Usually when there is a knock-on(when the offensive player fumbles the ball forward). And when the ball goes dead in the endzone their will be a 5 meter scrum.

You tube
Rugby full matches, there's plenty to watch

And the two guys and one sideline chick that were doing the last game on FOX (USA/AB) were very good!
He explained a lot with out sounding like an idiot or making you feel like one

Strange thing I've noticed at Ospreys matches:

All of the fans (other than me) are wearing jerseys. And not the nice looking sponsor-less ones.

Posting in the rugby thread. Glad this time of year is rolling around. Went and looked up the schedule last week for Munster just in time to see them on a 3 week break. That means I'll probably forget to watch the match b/c I have a terribad memory.

Rugby is definitely my go to sport to watch as football season is winding down and waiting for baseball season to start.
