I was quite surprised that there were no instructables about building a rugby kicking tee(I suppose this site is frequented mainly by Americans, where Rugby is not so diffused nowadays but exists another "oval-ball sport", and being in english I suppose also by British, Australians, New Zealanders, so potentially quite a massive rugby-passionate audience).
So I decided to fill this gap with my instructable from Italy.

In the pictures:
1) Rugby Player(Gerard Fraser) kicking a penalty.
2-5) Some examples of different brands commercial kicking-tees

Step 1: Needed Material and Tools

The Needed Material:
- 1,5 litre Cola Plastic Bottle
- Pattern( in the pictures)
- A little of isulating tape is needed (more is optional and useful)

- Scissors
- Permanent marker pen(fine-small tip is better)
- Shim (1 inch or better 3 cm)
<p>is he pattern in inches or in centimeters?? It is a great idea!</p>
Thank you. Anyway the pattern is expressed in centimeters. It was specified in a note inside the image but maybe on mobile devices you can't see the note.

<p>cool! gd idea...</p><p>whoops sorry im about 5 years late;)</p>
<p>Thank you, your comment is still welcome.</p><p>by the way I noticed your nickname, you are not the one in the picture, right?</p>
<p>uh... no, the picture is part of a poster of the All Blacks,the New Zealand rugby team. Where i come from. They won the last rugby world cup in england:)</p><p>Thanks though:)</p>
<p>No, I mean the picture of the player kicking in my ible. He was our fly-half many seasons ago, and being his name Gerard Fraser.... I asked</p>
<p>oh, sorry i misunderstood!</p><p>no, i am not Gerard Fraser sorry... he is currently a rugby union fly-half for the Bordeaux B&egrave;gles... and no sorry i know nothing about them, have never heard of them:) </p>
Tell me please, is the length of this bottle's circle 29.4 cm ((7*2+0.7)*2)? <br>In my country we have only 1 and 2 l Coca-Cola bottles, so I must find some another bottle with equal circle.
I didn't considered this problem, but anyway you can scale up/down this pattern or you can also draw your own(even better since the ball is always the same size and shape, so the intersection of the ideal shapes would be slightly different).<br>Anyway this pattern is not so analitically perfect that needs to be changed, this was just a result of a couple &quot;experiments&quot;.
this tee works great but what tee would this be if it was sold in stores? As in would the centuron tee be comparable to this one?
Of course my tee is not intended to compete with &quot;premium&quot; tees, this is not telescopic and not as firm as them on rough terrains, but it's probably better than some cheap tees you can buy, and don't forget that this is totally free.<br>The centurion in the image can be considered only a similar solution (because the ball is held by a &quot;properly cut&quot; pipe and not by 4 tips or a flat ring) but not even an inspiration since I designed mine on my own starting from the bottle(to take part to &quot;Keep the Bottle&quot; contest) and I had never seen that kind of tee before.
This Helped Me great Thanks Man...i decorated it with black and white tape...
I'm American but rugby is the only sport i play, and it's my favorite by far.
Of course firemanfu, I did not meant that there are no americans playing rugby, especially in the past it was more popular, you also got really good results in the early '900...I only meant that it's not a numerically leading movement, and I thin you can agree with me that about rugby the countries you think first are NewZeland, SouthAfrica,Australia, UK, Ireland, France. And being Italian I can really understand you because all think that we play only soccer but it's not true...as you can argue rugby is the favourite sport for me too. I hope you found my instructable interesting, bye.
dude you spelt new zealand wrong
dude that is a good tee
