Best Answer

Here is 4:

You cannot pass the ball forward, you must always pass backward or sideways.

You must put the ball down in the try zone in order to score. (not sure this is the most important but most likely is)

Only the player holding the ball may be tackled.

You may only be tackled six times as a team until a conversion.
