The areas behind the posts
These areas are the ingoal areas. They are important.
Roughly speaking, the ingoal areas are the areas stretching right accross the field behind each set of goal posts. (see ingoal details)
Grounding the ball in the opposition ingoal area results in points being awarded because this is how you score tries. (See rule 9 for more try details)
Grounding the ball in your own in goal area makes the ball dead and play will be restarted. There is no concept of an own try unlike football (soccer) where you can score for the opposition with an own goal.
