Resetting a scrum

Primary tabs

34. When there is no infringement, the referee will stop play and reset the scrum if:

a. The scrum-half throws in the ball and it comes out at either end of the tunnel.
b. The scrum collapses or breaks up before it has otherwise ended.
c. The scrum is wheeled through more than 90 degrees, so the middle line has passed beyond a position parallel to the touchline.
d. Neither side wins possession.
e. The ball is unintentionally kicked out of the tunnel. Exception: If the ball is repeatedly kicked out, the referee must treat this as intentional. Sanction: Penalty.

35. When a scrum is reset, the ball is thrown in by the team that previously threw it in.
