Can someone explain me what the "full line-out" rule in rugby is?


Anyone know where Ben Gollings is now?

I do not beleive it is a rule of any sort, but a full line-out would be when all the forwards, except the hooker, are in the line out. E.g.,
2 1345678
No. 2 is throwing in, or standing around, but not involved in the line out.
The other forwards do not usually line up in that position, it was just to show the numbers in the line out.

For the Additional Details, (I will leave the first response.)

In short, if you kick the ball whilst inside your 22, and the ball goes directly into touch, the line out occurs where the ball crossed the side line, whereas, kicking the ball directly into touch, whilst outside your 22, the line is taken from the position you kicked the ball.

I think this was originally done to give more advantage to the defending team. It would be / is / was easy to have a line out in the opposing 22 and score a try.

The definition of kicked directly into touch is:
"‘Kicked directly into touch’ means that the ball was kicked into touch without landing on the playing area, and without touching a player or the referee." [1], (Law 19 Touch and Lineout [2]), [3]

The definition of the 22 is:
"‘The 22’ is the area between the goal line and the 22-metre line, including the 22-metre line but excluding the goal line." [1], (Law 1 The Ground, and Law 19 Touch and Lineout [2]), [3]

Law 19.1 "THROW IN", explains when and where you gain ground from kicking the ball directly into touch.
"NO GAIN IN GROUND", explains about when the line out is brought back to where the person kicked the ball. [1], [3]
"GAIN IN GROUND", explains when the line out is taken where the ball went into touch.

It even has a picture to show different positions of receiving the ball, and being able to kick directly into touch.

To provide some help, if you are looking at grabbing the laws seperately, here is the current list of laws, so you do not have to open each one up to see what it relates to.

Can you watch the rugby world cup on american TV for free?

Team throwing in the ball decides the maximun number of players in the line-out. The opposing team may have fewer line-out players but they must not have more.

So to answer your question there is not really a full line-out rule. All the line-out rules are the same

OK I really want to play Rugy. So how can I tryout for a Currie Cup Rugby Team. I from USA?

A line-out on the full is a situation that occurs when a player kicks the ball out of bounds outside of the 22m line without letting the ball bounce first. When this happens the line out occurs at the point where the ball was kicked (eg. if the ball was kicked on the 30m and goes out at the 60m line, the line-out would occur back at the 30m). In order to make a kick viable outside the 22m is to make the ball bounce in bounds before it goes out.
