Groups of ten with one ball per group
Defenders start bunched sat on the floor
Start attackers spread out (width)
On the word GO! the the defenders get up and and defend. The attackers try to score. The coach varies the start point of the ball. It touched, the ball carrier must pass the ball immediately.
Run to hold defenders or run for space?
If running to hold defenders, support players must react and keep width
If running for space, runners must keep depth
Would passing early into space help or not?
15m x 35m Grid.
1 Attacker starts on the half way line of the grid, with the other two outside of the grid back to back with two defenders. On the command the one attacker runs around the red cone, with the other one running around the blue cone - likewise for the defenders.
Once they have run around the cones a 3 vs 2 will develop. If the player with the ball passes immediately this will give a 3 vs 2 in the middle of the pitch.
4 Cones and 1 Ball inside a 10m x 10m Grid.
Number the players.
The coach shouts out a number and that player is the defender, who has to run to the end line. The other two players are attackers, who run to the opposite end to collect a ball before having a 2 v 1 with the defender.
2 players start with the ball and play a 2 vs 1 they then form a 3 to beat the next 2 players whom in turn join the 3 and form a 5 top beat the last 4 defenders to score a try.
