Track And Field Glossary
A drop goal is scored when a player kick the ball from hand through the opposition's goal, but the ball must contact the ground between being dropped and kicked. It is worth three points. The team award a free kick cannot score a dropped goal until the ball next becomes dead, or until an opponent has played or touched it, or has tackled the ball carrier.
A drop kick is when a player kick the ball from hand and the ball touches the ground between being dropped and kicked.
The tackler wraps his arms around the ball carrier's thighs and lifts him a short distance in the air before compulsorily driving him to the ground. The tackler must go to position with the ball carrier for the tackle to be legal. This technique is useful to completely stop the opponent in his tracks.
