Oz Tag Playing Rules

GAME TIME

  • Games will be in 20 minute blocks:

    • 17 minute games

    • No half time

    • 3 minute change over between games

    • Each team will be guaranteed 4 games (plus finals if you make it)

 

FIELD SIZE 

  • All matches – 50m x 25m


BASIC RULES

  • Maximum of 8 players on the field at any one time

  • Defender must remove one tag to stop attacker’s progress.  He/She then holds up the tag and drops it to the ground marking where the play the ball should occur

  • There is a marker in the play the ball

  • If a player propels the ball in a forward direction with their hand or arm and the ball comes into contact with the ground, an opponent or the referee, a knock on will be awarded. A changeover will be awarded to the non-offending team. The referee may allow the non-offending team to take possession and gain an advantage. If they are tagged, it will be a zero tag

  • The game is non-tackle – the attacker cannot deliberately bump into a defender.  A defender cannot change direction and move into an attacker's path.  Whoever initiates contact will be penalised. The onus is on the attacking player to avoid the defender

  • The ball carrier is not allowed to protect his tag or fend off defenders

  • A try is awarded to the attacking team when they ground the ball on or over the try line. There are no dead ball lines

  • Defence must be back 7 metres

 

KICKING

  • The ball may not be kicked until after the fourth tag and before the initial tag

  • Kicks in general play cannot be above the shoulder height of the referee. The attacking team cannot dive on a kicked ball in any situation, but can kick on

  • Kick offs and line drop outs - if the ball lands in the field of play and then rolls across the try line, whether touched or not, a line drop out occurs.  The try line becomes the dead ball line for all kicks

 

OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUES

  • The defensive line can move forward only when the dummy half touches the ball. The dummy half can run and be tagged with the ball. The dummy half may score a try

 

SCORING

  • 1 point will be awarded for each try

  • The winning Team will receive 2 points

  • A drawn game will result in each team receiving 1 point for that match

I absolutely LOVED playing in last years Oz Tag Challenge with the Clontarf boys at Allianz Stadium. It opened my eyes to the amazing work the foundation does, and the effect they have on growth of these young boys at such an important phase in their lives.. I was so impressed with how respectful, well-spoken and talented the boys were, a true testament to Clontarf, and further cements why we need to continue to support them. Looking forward to the next one!
