Scoring
Around the Academy:
Conversion
Conversion

A conversion kick is a great way of getting two bonus points after your team after have a try.

The kick is taken from a point level with where the try was scored.

A conversion is successful if the ball goes between the opposition's goalposts and above the crossbar.

Conversions are taken from all parts of the pitch, so if you are trusted to score the extra points, practice kicking from all corners of the pitch.
