Rugby rules/strategy question
Please forgive me. I am just seeing rugby for just about the first time and there are many things I don't understand (hope to learn more).
I just watched a match where a player scored a try and ran to the center of the center of the field behind the uprights and dove. It was explained well why that is done but it brought up a question.
Is there a risk in doing that? could they lose the try if say, they are tackled or run or pushed out of bounds before they touch the ball down?
