A Bully is used to restart a game. A player from each team stands facing a sideline with his goal line to his right. The referee places the ball on the ground, where play was stopped. The two opposing players then tap each others stick on the ground and then they tap them above the ball and then bring their sticks to the ground and tap the ground again. This is done three times and on the third time, when the sticks have been touched above the ball, then each player will try to hit the ball. It's kind of like patty cake. However, the bully can't be played within 16 yards (14.6 meters) of the back line.
