Six cones are lined up along the five metre line and the balls are placed in a pile under the goalposts. Players split into four defenders and eight attackers.

  3. The attacking team has two minutes to score as many tries as possible.
  4. If the ball is dropped, intercepted, a try scored, or the designated number of touches completed, the attacking team drops the ball and runs back to the start to begin with another ball.
