Rugby Drill Demonstration
1 vs 1 in a small pitch
All players line up on the same line on one side of the pitch in the middle.
On the coaches signal, a player with a ball goes around a cone in one corner and another player goes around the other corner of the same sideline.
Then it is a simple 1 vs 1 with the player with the ball using footwork to beat the defender.
You can vary the level of contact at your discretion.
Keep shoulders up and square.
Scan what is in front of you and plan where you are going to go and how you can beat the defender.
Control your speed and shorten your stride as you approach to the defender.
Hold the ball in two hands
Keep your eye on the defender
Increase the intensity of the contact.
