Kick starts and restarts - the kicking team

The kicking team should:
  • kick restart to regain possession and/or territory
  • kick and chase effectively
  • if short kick restart, ensure enough height to allow team mates enough time to compete for the ball
  • if long kick restart, ensure accuracy of kick to enable an effective chase forcing the opposition into kicking the ball from the field of play or to run out of defence into an organised defensive system
