Just Score II

Difficulty: Advanced


    A high intensity game focused on offensive possession and scoring.

    How to Play

    1. One team of four players start behind a try line. Two defenders start in the middle of the grid.
    2. The offensive team starts by passing the ball in any direction.
    3. The object is for the offense to get the ball from one end of the grid to the other to score as many try’s as possible.  Players can pass the ball in any direction.
    4. If tagged by a defender, the offensive player must look to pass the ball immediately.
    5. The offense reverses the direction of attack if a try is scored.
    6. A drop ball results in a re-start at the try line.
    7. Defensive players change with offense players to allow everyone a turn.
