NO that would be cheating.

--------------------

Well, not cheating per se, but kicking a loose ball would result in a 15-yard penalty for illegal kicking.

The only legal kicks are punts, placekicks and dropkicks, and they each are allowed only in certain circumstances.

BTW... You'd probably get better responses if you posted this question under Football Rules, not Basketball Rules. :-)

When is the ball in touch for rugby?

The laws state that; '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. 'The 22' is the area between the goal line and the 22-metre line, including the 22-metre line but excluding the goal line. The line of touch is an imaginary line in the field of play at right angles to the touchline through the place where the ball is thrown in. The ball is in touch when it is not being carried by a player and it touches the touchline or anything or anyone on or beyond the touchline. The ball is in touch when a player is carrying it and the ball carrier (or the ball) touches the touchline or the ground beyond the touchline. The place where the ball carrier (or the ball) touched or crossed the touchline is where it went into touch. The ball is in touch if a player catches the ball and that player has a foot on the touchline or the ground beyond the touchline. If a player has one foot in the field of play and one foot in touch and holds the ball, the ball is in touch. If the ball crosses the touchline or touch-in-goal line, and is caught by a player who has both feet in the playing area, the ball is not in touch or touch-in-goal. Such a player may knock the ball into the playing area. If a player jumps and catches the ball, both feet must land in the playing area otherwise the ball is in touch or touch-in-goal. A player in touch may kick or knock the ball, but not hold it, provided it has not crossed the plane of the touchline. The plane of the touchline is the vertical space rising immediately above the touchline.

Is a player down if the football hits the ground?

No. A player is down when his knee or back touches the ground. If the ball carrier loses the ball before this happens then it is called a fumble, and both teams try to recover the ball and whichever team does gains possession. Yes. The only thing allowed to touch the ground without you being 'down' is your hands and feet. We even have interpretation questions on whether the wrist and ankles are part of the hand/feet to determine if a player is down. If the ball touches the ground, the player is considered down. This is why the ground cannot cause a fumble. If it was a pass and the WR was deemed not in control of the pass, it is known as a dropped or incomplete pass. The player has to have complete control, but the ball can touch the ground. This is determining the completion of the catch, though, not whether the player is down or not.

Does the player have to have both feet in end zone for a touchdown?

No. Only the point of the ball has to cross into the endzone to be concidered a touchdown, assuming the player has possesion of the ball. If the player catches the ball in the end zone, then yes, he has to get both feet down for the score to count. It's no different from the requirement to get both feet down for a completion on any other part of the field. In college and Canadian football, however, a player is only required to have one foot down for completions and touchdowns.
