Heather, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  1. 10 advances with the ball, running slightly inwards.
  2. 10 changes the angle of their run, towards the first post.
  3. 12 runs across 10 on a dummy switch.
  4. 10 fakes a pass to 12, but keeps going.
  5. 13 runs parallel to 12.
  6. 11 runs across and behind 13.
  7. 10 passes to 11, the ball should be passed behind 13.
  8. Think about what will happen next, passing option, cancel options, and variations on this move. Your back-line should remain flexible at all time.

COACHING POINTS

  • Think about what could happen if the move needs to be cancelled, what will happen following the move if we pass the gain line and if we are stopped at the gain line.
  • Run this unopposed, before adding pressure.
  • Run this move with pressure as the team gets better.
  • Think about where you will use with move on the pitch.
  • Think about using cones to mark out starting and target points.
  • Allow players to cancel, but if they do cancel, what are their options?
  • Players heads need to be up, a move should be a fluid attacking strategy.
  • Think about player foot-speed, do the players need to be running flat out all the time?
