Just Score III

Difficulty: Advanced


    A high intensity game focused on offensive possession and scoring.

    How to Play

    1. Two teams of four players start behind opposite try lines.
    2. The offensive team starts by passing the ball in any direction.
    3. If the offensive team gets tagged before they score they must set the ball on the ground, return to their try line, then return back to play and become the defending team.
    4. The offense reverses the direction of attack if a try is scored.
    5. A dropped ball results in a turnover to the other team.
    6. The first team to get a set number of try’s will win the round.
