Heather, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  1. See the diagram for starting positions.
  2. 10 moves forward carrying the ball.
  3. 12 moves forward, over-running the ball, cutting the drift.
  4. 10 miss-passes to 13.
  5. 15 runs a line outside 13.
  6. 13 pops to 15.
  7. 14 cuts in to support 15.

COACHING POINTS

  • The outside pop to 15 needs to be as close to the defensive line as possible.
  • Be aware of the possibility of an intercept.
  • 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.
  • Execute as close to the defensive line as possible, but beware of interceptions.
  • 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?
  • Timing is everything, there is no point in exhausting the move too early.
