Rugby: LOOP MOVE (SIMPLE)

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

DESCRIPTION

  1. See the diagram for suggested starting positions.
  2. 10 passes to 12.
  3. 10 loops around 12,
  4. 12 passes to 10, this pass should be as close to the opposition defensive line as possible.
  5. 10 should hit in tight off 12's shoulder.
  6. 13 should run a decoy line, allowing 10 some space to attack.
  7. Optional, 10 passes to 13, possibly in contact via an off-load.
  8. Think about how other players can support the ball carrier.

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.
  • The pass between 12 and 10, following the loop, should be as close to the opposition defensive line as possible.
  • 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?
