PLAY TOUCH RUGBY
BASIC RULES OF TOUCH RUGBY
Two hand touch anywhere on the body counts as one phase.
Each offense will get 6 phases total before the ball turns over.
After each touch or phase, the defensive team must retreat 5 meters from the mark before advancing forward. Violation of not retreating 5 m will result in an award of 6 new phases to the offense.
Offensive players that are touched must retreat to the point of being touched (the mark), and step over the ball.
Players who do not retreat to the mark will be penalized and the ball will turn over to the defense. Any mishandled ball or kicking is a turnover.
All restarts (ball goes into touch, forward pass, etc.) will occur via one offensive person stepping over the ball and mark, and a second offensive person acting as scrum half.
