In an on-sides kick the football does not have to touch the ground. The football must travel at least 10 yards before the kicking team can legally touch the football.

What would the referee award if the ball went off the side of the pitch in rugby?

A line-out against the team who put it in touch EXCEPT where a penalty kick was awarded. IN this case the team awarded the penalty kick may decide to kick for position advantage and in doing so kicks the ball in to touch. The line-out awarded from this is FOR the team taking the penalty and they have the throw in. In the case of a free kick (j) Outside the kicker's 22, no gain in ground. When a free kick awarded outside the 22 goes directly into touch, the throw-in is in line with where the ball was kicked, or where it went into touch, whichever is nearer the kicker's goal line. (k) Inside the kicker's 22 or in-goal, gain in ground. When a free kick is awarded in the 22 or in-goal and the kick goes directly into touch, the throw-in is where the ball went into touch.

What is the difference between a soccer corner kick and a soccer goal kick?

A goal kick is awarded to the defending team when the ball goes out of the field of play by crossing, either on the ground or in the air, the goal line, without a goal being scored, when the last person to touch the ball was from the attacking team. If the last person to touch the ball was a member of the defending side, a corner kick is instead awarded to the attackers. A corner kick is taken from whichever corner is closer to the place where the ball crossed the goal line. A goal kick is taken from anywhere in the 6-yard box.
