Player with the ball runs into contact then passes the ball back to the next player in line.
You can tell the player to go to ground and then pop and pass the ball up - must be done immediately after going to ground.
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 first player moves forwards, makes contact with the tackle bag and retreats diagonally to the line of cones.
The next player joins the line and both the players move forward and hit the tackle bag or shield before retreating back to the line again.
The third player then joins the line and all three players go out to meet the tackle bag, shield or fall on the ball.
Drill continues with all players involved.
Set up the cones as shown.
12 Cones with 2 balls.
Start with 2 players on the centre cone, each with a ball, and facing each other. On GO, the both run backwards to the first cone then side step up the grid to the second cone before running through the slalom cones back to the start where the ball is passed to the next players who only go when each player has received a ball.
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.
