CONVERSION, PENALTY GOAL AND DROPPED GOAL

4. For any goal to be successful, the ball must be kicked over the crossbar and between the goal posts without first touching a team-mate or the ground.

5. If the ball goes over the crossbar and over the height of the goal posts, the kick is
successful if it is deemed that the ball would have gone between the goal posts had they been taller.

6. If the ball has crossed the crossbar and the wind blows it back into the field of play, the score stands.
