Rugby: M1 12 UNDER

What a fantastic tool. I've found a few drills that are unfamiliar,...
Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  1. Note the starting positions of players for this move, it's just a suggestion. However, I suggest your players start that bit flatter, and that 13 starts just ahead of 12.
  2. 10 carries the ball forward, inviting the defence to press.
  3. 13 cuts in to cut the distance between them and 10.
  4. 10 makes a miss pass out to 13.
  5. 12 runs am under, runner first towards the 13 channel in order to pull their defender out of position. They then, at speed, cut out. However, if their defender does not follow them, they should maintain their line taking the ball as close to the 13 as possible.
  6. 13 makes a pass to 12, this pass should be as close to the opposition defensive line as possible.

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, I suggest the opposition half.
  • 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 13 to 12 as close to the defensive line as possible.
  • 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?
