Rugby: STATIC 1

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

DESCRIPTION

  1. See the diagram for suggested starting positions.
  2. 10 and 12 remain static, the other players are in motion, offering options.
  3. 10 and 12 invite the defence to press up at speed.
  4. 10 passes to 12.
  5. 11 cuts in on 12's shoulder.
  6. 12 passes to 11.
  7. 15 and 13 provide alternative options.

COACHING POINTS

  • Be aware that timing is everything, don't be afraid to delay passes and encourage the defence to blitz.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The pass between 12 and 11 needs to be just as the defence is pressing down on 12.
