The ball is passed continually away from would-be tacklers, so the passing team needs many players running in support of the ball carrier. The main types of rugby passes are the lateral pass, which travels sideways or backwards; the switch pass, which changes the direction of the play; and the loop pass, which helps to put a player either through a gap in the defensive line or into space around the far edge of the defence (overlap). Other passes in rugby (e.g., the gut pass and screen pass)...
The attacking team attempts to misshape the defence to create attacking space in which play makers can create situations that allow penetrators and support runners to go forward at speed. The ball carrier and support runners have their own keys to success in support, as noted in the following lists. The ball carrier will try to time the pass to a support runner so that both avoid contact and the receiver can carry the ball forward into space.
Most often, the ball carrier is turned or loses the ball in contact, or sends a wayward pass that is intercepted. Many of the most exciting attacks come when the ball is kicked to a wing or full back and is then run back at the chasing team from inside the 22-metre area. Any kick ahead may leave the kicking team exposed to some form of counterattack.
