|Other Six Nations Info:
The object of the game is to score more points than your opponents. There are a number of ways to achieve this.
Tries can be scored in a number of ways, other than running over the try line and putting the ball down.
They include the pushover try, scored by driving the opposition's scrum back over its own line; the momentum try, where a player slides into the in-goal area; and the penalty try, awarded when a team illegally obstructs the opposition to prevent a certain try from being scored.
There is no such thing as an "own try". If you touch the ball down in your own in-goal area, it results in a kick or a scrum.
