Rules Explained - Offside in Defence

The interpretations below surprised a number of our A Grade representative men at a clinic last year. It’s a fair bet that some others may not know the rules as well as they believe they do.


Rules Explained

We will shortly be posting a series of explanations of rules and interpretations from Cairns Pirates Technical Director Tanya Findlay. The interpretations are taken from the rulebook and those provided by the national referees’ panel but we will be using some common language more easily understood by lower level players.

As most would know, Tanya is a Level 6 referee and one of the best referees in Australia so refs in Cairns will be going with her advice in preference to the help offered on-field by many and various players in Cairns, no matter how well-credentialled and/or well-intentioned the adviser might be.


Cairns Pirates Constitution
