Rugby: ALPHA

Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  1. 10 is the ball carrier, advancing forward, before cutting in as shown in the diagram.
  2. Both 12 and 13 advance, then change direction as shown in the diagram.
  3. 12 and 13 switch.
  4. 10 provides a pass to 13, who either hits the opposition defensive line at an angle before straightening up.

Think about what will happen next. Could 10 follow the pass and take an off-load on an inside ball, if 13 gets past the gain line could 15 and 14 off wide support? Make this move your own!

COACHING POINTS

  • Think about using cones to mark out starting and target points.
  • Allow players to cancel, but if they do cancel, what are their options?
  • Execute the pass from 10 to 13 as close to the defensive line as possible.
  • Think about player foot-speed, do the players need to be running flat out all the time?
