AFL Scoring

Scores are either a goal which equals 6 points, or a behind, which equals 1 point. Goals are scored by kicking the ball through the 2 goal posts at your scoring end. ... If the ball hits the goal post, or goes between the goal post and behind post, then a behind is awarded.

Tackling. A legal tackle is where a player with the ball is tackled below the shoulders and above the knees. When a player is in possession of the ball and is tackled correctly they must immediately dispose of the ball by kicking or hand passing.

Bumping. A player can legally bump (also known as a hip-and-shoulder move) any opponent (not just the player in possession) who is within five metres of the ball. Charging a player is not a legal bump and is penalised with a free kick and can be reported, regardless of whether the ball is within five metres or not.
