Rugby League Drill Demonstration


Set a narrow grid to attack. Defenders and attackers begin on the touchline in the centre. Both leave at the same time and run around appointed cones, ball carrier should accelerate up towards inside shoulder of defender to draw in and then pass to the support runner coming from depth who can run in and score.

Coaching points

Ball carrier attack closest touchline at inside shoulder of defender. Inside shoulder means the defender cannot drift onto second support runner. Support runners come from depth and with hands up as targets to pass to. Defenders try to keep body as square to attackers as possible to move onto another attacker and avoid been beaten.


Give attackers or defenders different commands to influence the way players react to various situations.
