2 attackers with a half back attack a defender
The support player should be able to read the situation and apply the best techniques for ball security, either driving out or sealing off the ball.
The support player must maintain their feet, and drive the tackler off the ball or adopt a strong squat position sealing off the ball with elbows together on the ball carrier.
The support player should avoid flopping on the tackled player as fatigue sets in.
Re-enforce the urgency of winning the race over the ball to both attackers and defender
The ball carrier and one support player runs towards the other group and, at the middle the ball carrier goes to ground and presents the ball. The support player straddles the player on the ground, picks up the ball and runs on to the next group, passing the ball to them
The ball carrier walks up to the defender and turns away to present the ball to their own team.
The defender should try to turn the ball carrier and keep him facing away from support.
Start with 2 players on the centre cone, each with a ball, and facing each other.
Agility & Running Skills
Two players with shields stand facing the runners on opposite sides of a grid. On the command, the players run into the shield and spins to their right before joining the back of the group on the left hand side. The practice keeps repeating.
On GO, each ball carrier drives into the contact pad and spins out, past the defender before passing the ball to the next player in the other group.
