In each of the two channel there are two players with a tackle bag and two players binding with their back to the runner.
The first player starts and runs to the player with the tackle bag and makes a tackle before moving on.
After the 2nd tackle he runs to bind with the 2 players and drives them across the line. When the 3 players cross the line one of the 2 binding players takes over and continues to run up the other channel, with the first running player now binding with the other player.
Swap the players with the tackle bags regularly
Player with the ball runs into contact then passes the ball back to the next player in line.
The first player runs around the red cone and back down to the start of the slalom. There the player zig-zags up the slalom, then back down before running around the second red cone and down to the second group of players where the ball is passed to the next player
