Re: Kicking ball to opposition

I'm sure in most field sports possession is deemed crucial, it may be different in RU but I simply can't see that (in most cases) giving the ball to opponents is a good idea.

I guess the one difference in RU from other field sports is, hunting penalties from the opposition when they are in their own half is understandable as 3 points is quite a reward for some infringements. Apart from that, I simply don't get why teams do it so much.
