Dropped goal

Primary tabs

28. A player scores a dropped goal by kicking a goal from a drop-kick in open play.

29. The team awarded a free-kick (including where they opt for a scrum or lineout instead) cannot score a dropped goal until the ball next becomes dead or until an opponent has played the ball, has touched it or has tackled the ball-carrier. Any such kick is deemed to be unsuccessful and play continues.
