*AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON*
In groups of 5 tie a bit of tape or string around the two posts approximately 0.5 to 1 meter above the ground.
Two players hold the sausages behind the tape on either side and one holds the bag in front of the tape.
Change the man with the bag every few reps or hold the bag as the coach.
The players will rotate around with each rep.
1 Full Repetition:
The player starts on the ground, hits the bag with either shoulder and then powers past the bag.
Player then gets into a low body position and moves under the tape to complete a tackle on the sausage.
Next, they should get into a strong body position as if they were contesting at a ruck.
They then pick up the sausage and the previous holder moves around.
Keeping a strong square profile
Keep low and driving through the tackle
Keep chin off chest and eyes looking at the target
Wrap arms around to simulate how you would stop the player running in a game
Always thinking about the next job: Dynamic tackle and then getting into position over the ball to contest the ruck
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.
Close down the space quickly, make yourself big.
Keep moving forward with short steps, stay balanced, take contact, grip tight.
Simple game for teaching tackling when on your knees.
Starting with initially two tacklers and the rest as attackers, players must try to go from one side to the other with a ball in their hands without being tackled.
If a player is tackled they must throw their ball out of the area and become a tackler in the next round of the game.
