Rugby: 4 vs 3 team shapes/backs moves attacking drill

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

DESCRIPTION

Drill to practice team shapes or backs moves against a defence with less numbers than the attack.

Set up a "ruck" with a scrum half/feeder, 3 defenders on the back foot of the "ruck" and 4 attackers opposite them. The attackers attack the defence, then turn round and attack back the way they have just come. 

Progressions:

  • Change the set up of the attack, for example a blindside winger or full back in behind
  • Change the number of attack/defence
  • Change the defensive system (e.g. hammer, blitz, ice, up and out, umbrella)

COACHING POINTS

The attack need to identify where the space is, and which moves are most effective to attack that space

Encourage the attackers to work out which moves/shapes work best to beat the different defensive systems
