Scoring
Around the Academy:
Try
Try

Score a try and your team-mates, teachers and coach will be your best mates for ever.

Alright, maybe not for that long, but you'll definitely be among the popular players in the team.

The reason why is because a try is worth five points - the maximum number of points you can score in one go in rugby union.

A try is scored when a player puts the ball on the ground with "downward pressure" (very important) inside the opposition's in-goal area between the try line and deadball line.

Aim to score as many tries in one game as possible.
