The maul as currently played, is one of the more complicated parts of the game.

The ARU has put together a presentation covering all aspects of the maul from a match official perspective to help provide referees with some guidelines as to what they should be looking for. This includes:

Formation No contest situations Attack set up Legal defence

After formation Attack 'changing lanes' Players joining in attack Illegal defence

Unplayable mauls Following dynamic play Unplayable maul management

The presentation contains 31 videos clips highlighting and explaining what to look for.

This presentation has been distributed to all States for use in education sessions. For a copy of the content, please email your State Referee Education contact.
