Once a ruck has been formed any other players wanting to join the ruck, either to protect the ball or gather, must do so through an area called 'The Gate'. This area is directly behind your side of the ruck and ensures that players are entering the ruck from an on-side position.

What to do...

Your players must first step on a space within the gate (see example) before entering the ruck. Failing to do so may result in a penalty to be determined by a referee roll.
