Rugby Drill Demonstration
Working in groups of up to 4, players spaced approximately 4-5 metres apart.
Players jog to the 1st cone then jog backwards to the start line. Still running as a line they then jog to the 2nd cone and so on to the 4th cone.
Keep level and aligned when going forwards and backwards.
Look left and right to keep aligned.
Work hard to get back to a defending position
Always face the ball and the opposition (hence run back to the line backwards).
Communication is key!
Jogging faster to each cone, finishing with 100% effort sprints to each cone.
Introduce an Scrum Half to simulate the ball leaving the breakdown/ scrum/ lineout, then have the inside defender calling up the defensive line "HOLD, HOLD, HOLD.....PRESS!"
The defensive line should then press as soon as the Scrum Half picks the ball up.
