    Default When is the ball out?

    Guys,
    My club have decided to have a small groupie of competent TJ's for the coming season. As an ex-referee I have been asked by the club to offer advice as to when the ball is out (over the touchline). I seem to remember a document from, I think Australia, that covered this does anyone have any ideas of where I could find this?
    Many thanks.

    I remember the document you refer to....not sure if it current!

    Good luck getting 'competent' TJs....

    Touch laws in my opinion are among the most difficult to understand and implement!
    If you can get volunteers that are competent and capable to act as TJs then they should be well worth following up to become referees!

    It’s out of date. The other reference is the law book. !!

    Get the World Rugby laws app - touch laws have changed quite significantly recently.

    this is the document referred to. It is now very out of date. Peter Marshall as a boy.

    Would be nice to have an updated version.

    Ball is in touch if it hit the ground, anything outside the field of play, spectator/man walking a dog (or the dog)/fence/wall etc. Or is caught by a player with one or more foot/feet on or beyond the touch-line. Here's where is starts getting funny though.

    Blue Player catches ball - ball has crossed the touch-line but not hit anything - both players feet are in the Field of Play. Ball not in touch play on.

    Blue Player catches ball - ball has crossed the touch-line but not hit anything - player is standing with one foot on the Field of Play and one on or beyond the touch line. Ball is in touch. LO to the Blue team as the ball was caught beyond the touch-line.

    Blue Player catches ball - ball has not crossed the touch-line - player is standing with one foot on the Field of Play and one on or beyond the touch line. Ball is in touch. LO to the red team as the ball was caught and made in-touch by Blue.

    Ball kicked - Blue player jumps from the field of play taps the ball backwards back into the Field of Play - Play on.

    Id suggest to refer to the World Rugby website or app.
