Good for younger rugby players to learn how to go into contact and set up the ball at pace, you can use it as a competition between the team with a limit of time etc.
2 people are on the tackle shields about 5 metres apart facing each other, there is a ball carrier standing in the middle of the two defenders.
Ball carrier runs in to one defender and places the ball, once placed, he gets to his feet quickly and runs into the next defender doing the same. This process can continue for as short or as long as you like, a good challenge would be 30 second limit to get in as many hits and ball placements as possible.
Work at a high intensity!!
Hit with the leading shoulder holding the ball with both hands at the furthest point away from the defender, as you would in a game. This would be on the hip furthest away from the defender.
When making contact it should be a low to high body position using your leg power to your advantage.
Depending on what you want working you on can let them have a leg drive to push off defenders.
Place the ball as far as you can away from the defender as quickly as possible, side or long placement.
Work to get back to your feet as quickly as possible.
Close down the space quickly, make yourself big.
Keep moving forward with short steps, stay balanced, take contact, grip tight.
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.
The player with the ball jogs in a straight line with the tackler coming in form the side to tackle them.
Players stand 5 metres apart, only the attacking player moves in this drill, the tackler remains still as their partner approaches.
As the player gets close the tackler should keep their head up and engage the runner with either their left or right shoulder.
Holding around their knees tightly and driving with their shoulder they should allow the player to fall over their shoulder to floor.
