Set a 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 defender channeling them however they want realising that they have two other support runners for different options to run in and score.
Use the diagram in order to think about the starting position of your players, I suggest that they are not too deep for this one. 10 passes the ball to 12. 11 loops behind 12. 12 advances with the ball. 12 pass the ball to 11, this should be a close to the defensive line as possible. 13 runs a line, at speed, close the space between them and 11. 11 does their best to avoid contact, but if they do take contact, they should attempt to off-load to 13.
Carries the ball forward, inviting the defence to press up. 10 Passes to 12. 10 loops around 12 following their pass, 10 should aim to draw attention to their run, they are a decoy. 11 presses up, and and then at speed changes the angle of their run, hitting the inside shoulder of 12. This pass should be as close to the opposition defence as possible. 12 passes to 11, 11 take on an angle. Think about what will happen next. Could 12 cancel and offer an outside ball to 10, could 11 pass to 13 and then out via the rest of the back-line. It's vital that your team makes this move your own!
2 teamsÂ BibsÂ BallsÂ One team must try and complete 10 passes in a small grid.Â When the player has the ball in his hand he cannot move, the other team must try to intercept the ball to stop them completing 10 passes.Â Defending team must stand 1 metre away from ball carrier. If the ball is dropped or intercepted its a turn over.Â If a team knock the ball down its a knock on and the same attacking team keep the ball.Â
This is the first exercise in a series of three that can be put together to form a contact conditioning circuit. Alternatively, this would be a great exercise to include as part of a warm up. Your players should work in pairs. One player lays with his back on the ground and the other lays across him facing down. The player with his back on the ground has to work really hard to get back to his feet against the resistance of his partner. This exercise will develop your players core strength and ability to manipulate the body in order to get back to their feet. This drill is simulating aspects of the game such as having to roll away after making a tackle.

I have just started helping our head coach with under12's team. He wants to retire and has put me forward to be head coach next season. I am a little worried on how i should aproach training with the boys, going to a full 15 a side team on a full pitch. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone have a definitive answer to this question%3A can I coach basic tackling skills to U8s now, in preparation for next season, without falling foul of any RFU rules or regulations?

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a player for my local club and we don't have a coach at the moment so I, as a senior player, am filling that gap. With your help, the team has been able to improve our skills.
Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back to our rugby training. The players and I now really enjoy our training sessions.
Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training. Thanks for the great drills!

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.
What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
I can't get enough of the Sportplan, It has given me back the enthusiasm i was starting to lose. My girls are so keen and are ready at 14 to take the next up in their game. Sportplan will help no end.
