Phases of Play Features of Rugby Conversion

When the ball goes out of the field of play, it is the opposing team's line-out. An exception is when the ball is kicked into touch from a penalty kick, the team that was awarded the penalty gets the line-out. The line out is taken from where the ball left the field. If the ball leaves the field on the full, the line out is taken in line with where the ball was kicked (except when kicked from within the 22 or a penalty kick).
