Work in pairs
Coach calls out a number and that pair reacts and runs around the cones - one attacks and the other defends
Progressions: Swap sides
Be positive, go forward
Attack space furthest from the defender- go for it!
Change running lines and pace. React to the defender
Be smart and think!
two lines of players opposite each other in 2 lines.
one of the teams has the ball and has to pass the ball along each player in the line.
The player in possession of the ball when the coach calls out go has to run around the cone at the end of the grid to try and run the full length of the grid to score a try. The player from the opposition in line with the player that is running can try to stop the player scoring by running around the cone and tagging the runner before they reach the line.
Offence (blue), line out in one deep line.
Defence (red) - opposite in a straight line, slightly inside player you are marking.
Offence endeavour to pass ball along line.
Defence move up to stop them. Each defender goes up to tackle - if ball is passed THEN they work to protect inside shoulder of player on their outside.
Pass gets given to the attacker who has to run down the grid. When the tackle comes in the player with the ball has to present the ball.
Tackler has to get to feet quickly to get the ball and pass it back the the initial passer of the practice . Next two player go.
After each go the players swap sides.
Set up the cones as shown.
12 Cones with 2 balls.
Start with 2 players on the centre cone, each with a ball, and facing each other. On GO, the both run backwards to the first cone then side step up the grid to the second cone before running through the slalom cones back to the start where the ball is passed to the next players who only go when each player has received a ball.
