Rugby League: Attack until you're tackled

This is a great site. The days of scratching practice drills and back...
Andrew

DESCRIPTION

Set Up

Playing area of 25m in length – adjust width to suit numbers- equal numbers in both teams

Full LEG tackles ONLY – ball carrier when tackled can off load immediately or IF no support present when support arrives – game continues until knock or forward pass occurs. When a try is scored the try scorer turns to attack the other try line game continues playing the opposite way. No rucks or mauls.

COACHING POINTS

Fix defenders and attack space – encourage ‘Go Forward’ momentum and close support.

The game should be played at maximum pace. Encourage support runners to stay deep and follow ball carrier into the space being attacked.

Encourage players to think one phase ahead – that is to make a decision they cannot get through untouched so going to attack the space and off load to left or right – this encourages players to read the micro situations which occur when confronted with a flat defensive line. Encourage movement away from restart area when good forward momentum has been achieved.

Highlight leg tackles ONLY and support players to react quickly to the contact area.
