Beginner's Guide - Advantage

Advantage

The advantage Law allows the game to be more continuous and have fewer stoppages.

Sometimes, during a game, an infringement of the Laws may be committed where a stoppage in play would deprive the non-offending team of an opportunity to score.

Even though the Laws state that the non-offending team should be awarded a penalty, free-kick or scrum, they are given the opportunity to continue with open play and attempt to score a try.

In this instance, the referee will allow play to continue rather than penalise the offence.
