Passing
The laws on passing

Rugby league is one of the few ball games where the ball can only travel backwards.

So that means the ball cannot be passed forwards at anytime.

If the referee sees a pass that goes forwards instead of backwards, they will blow up and call a scrum at the place where the pass was made.

The opposition will have the advantage - the feed - at the scrum.
