Rugby: Fast running and Fast hands

Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training....
Tyrone, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Mark out a channel about 10 meters in length, with a cone at either end and four diagonally placed other cones.

Divide your players into two small groups. Players work in pairs.

The drill starts with a pass being made at the top of the channel. Players then run down the side, stepping off and changing direction at the cones placed in a zig-zag pattern.

They round the last cone and run up the centre of the channel placing and picking the ball for each other.

When they reach the top of the channel the ball is passed to the next pair who repeat the drill.

COACHING POINTS

Look for short sharp steps, accelerating from cone to cone.

Good low body position when placing and picking the ball.

Accelerate into the ball when picking it up.
