Hi, I would like to know what's the word for the pass in rugby whereby a player passes the ball between his legs and backwards to another player placed behind him. I hope I've explained myself... I don't know much about the game itself Thank you!!
Hi, do you mean these extremely short-range passes in which you don't throw the ball, but hold it backwards and wait for an other player to grab it? I would be surprised if there was a specific term for doing it between your legs.
I should have started by knowing which sport I was talking about As I'm asking on behalf of someone else who wanted to know, I guess I just didn't even know how to ask the question.
I really appreciate your help, and it's more than probable that the game I intended to know about is American Football.
Cueta, you could ask your friend if the players involved are wearing: (a) shorts/shirts/socks/boots; or (b) enough clothing, padding, armour [etc.] to withstand a nuclear blast.
If (a) that's rugby; if (b) that's American football
In touch rugby you put the ball down between your legs and then the "dummy half" takes it and passes it out to someone else.
4. After being touched, the player touched must put the ball on the ground and step over the ball. The Dummy Half who waits behind them, then picks the ball up and usually passes it (This is called ROLL BALL, but in reality the ball should NOT be rolled, rather it should be placed on the ground and stepped over).
Ewie: That sounds very sensible . I guess what my friend meant is what the web page of prokicker.com shows (3rd picture from the top), so it's probably a "snap". But, do they do the same pass in rugby?
RaodFox: You've answered my question even before I could post the words. But the "roll ball" that sounds a bit different from the "snap".
Se16yeddy: sorry for the delay. I think that's not what I was looking for, because it looks like the player uses his foot to pass the ball backwards. Thank you, anyway, and thank you all for your useful answers!!!
