The Playing Field

field_colour2_copyThe sidelines are called touchlines and there are two in-goal areas, which are expected to be 10 to 22-metres deep with a tryline marking the front and a dead ball line at the back. The goal posts are located on the try line and are 5.6 metres apart, a crossbar set at 3 metres and the height of the posts varies.

Other important lines on the field include the halfway mark at 50-metres. A dashed 10-metre line set each side of the 50-metre-line, which is used to judge kick-offs, and a solid 22-metre line marked 22-metres from each tryline. Other lines include two dashed lines set at 5 and 15-metres marked parallel to each touchline. These lines are used mostly to identify the zones for lineouts.
