I've just got this and have played through some of the basic rules with my son. He's only 7, so we're not using the optional ruck rules, but I have a question regarding gathering the ball at the breakdown.

Imagine the scenario where my winger takes the ball and runs into Joe's no.8.

- Both my winger and the no. 8 are grounded.
- I move in my centre to gather the ball, but he fails the roll. He's still on his feet (no tacklers from Joe's side are there to tackle me) adjacent to the ball.
- My turn ends (failed roll)
- Joe moves in his prop to take the ball from my squashed winger. He succeeds, but if he is adjacent to my centre (the one who failed to gather) he is automatically tackled, although the ball is on top of his counter now.

Have I got this right? If so, Joe's prop needs to join the fray so as to avoid being adjacent to one of my non-grounded players when he gathers. Either way, even if Joe is automatically tackled as he takes possession, am I right in my assumption that the ball will move on to his counter as a result of succeeding in his gather?
