Responsibilities of a Boundary Umpire:
• Move along the boundary line to adjudicate on where the football leaves the playing field. If the ball is touched or bounces before going over the line, blow a whistle and put one arm straight up above your head. If kicked out on the full blow whistle and signal with two arms out from your side.
• The ball is only out when the entire football is over the line. If any part of the ball is on the line then the ball is still in. A player can run outside the line while holding the ball as long as the ball is still in play.
• Throw the ball back into play over your head.
• At the start of each quarter and after a goal has been scored return the ball to the field umpires, then stand at the corner of the centre square. Each team can only have four players in the centre square for a centre ball up. If a team has more than this, blow your whistle and advise the field umpire.
