In the tackle scenarion. When a ruck, maul, scrum or lineout forms, a player who is offside and is retiring as required by Law remains offside even when the opposing team wins possession and the ruck, maul, scrum or lineout has ended. The player is put onside by retiring behind the applicable offside line. No other action of the offside player and no action of that player's team mates can put the offside player onside.

If the player remains offside the player can be put onside only by the action of the opposing team. There are two such actions:

An Opponent runs 5 metres with ball. When an opponent carrying the ball has run 5 metres, the offside player is put onside. An offside player is not put onside when an opponent passes the ball. Even if the opponents pass the ball several times, their action does not put the offside player onside.

An Opponent kicks. When an opponent kicks the ball, the offside player is put onside.

What is underwater rugby?

Usally played with a round, rather than an oval-shaped 25 centermetres (10 inches) ball, this six-a-side game for men and women is known as Rugby because opponents may be grabbed and tackled as long as they are in possetion of the ball. A tackled player must release the ball, which is filled with dissolved salt, when tackled. The goals are metal buckets 40 centermetres (16 inches) in diameter, situated on each end of the floor of the pool. A foul is called if the ball leaves the water. Not very many people play Underwater rugby, so because of this it is often played in mixed male-female teams. The first Underwater Rugby World Championship took place in 1980 in mulheim an der Ruhr in Germany, the birthplace of Underwater Rugby. It is also popular in Australia, Europe, and North America.
