Steal the egg

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Two teams trying to get the egg to their side


One "EGG" this can be a Rugby ball or a plastic egg.


Team members are numbered, so that each team has a number one, number two, etc. The teams line up opposite each other about 10 to 12 feet apart. A plastic Easter egg is placed in the middle. The referee calls out a number, and the two players with that number approach the middle of the field. The object is to pick up the egg and get back to your line without being tagged by the other player. If a player succeeds in doing so, his or her team gets a point. If the player is tagged, the other team gets a point. A player can be tagged only after picking up the egg, so strategy is important. Is it best to go for the egg, or wait for the other person to pick it up?
