Rugby: Contact Square - Inside Clear

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a...
Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Set up a 5mx5m grid
  • Work in fours - two attacker and two defender
  • The ball is fed from a player from the 1st defending player who also holds the tackle pad and will simulate the ‘jackal’ threat player in the 2v2
  • The first attacking player receives the ball and engages the pad holder and passes to the second attacking player
  • The second attacking player engages the second defender (tackler) and bounces out to a weak shoulder
  • The first attacking player (inside clear out) and the 1st defending player (jackler) then try and race to support
  • The inside clear looks to support the attacker and clear out the jackler




COACHING POINTS

  • This is a quick drill to prime your players for contact and build good habits
  • All attacking players need to fix their opposite defender
  • The first defending player needs to push up and take the space away from the first attacker
  • The ball carrier needs to use footwork to engage and gain a soft shoulder (edge) on the defenders
  • The ball carrier needs to bounce ‘out’ away from the inside ‘jackal’ threat
  • The ball carrier needs to present the ball quickly
  • Ensure the inside support follows their pass and clears the jackler to ensure quick ball
  • Encourage the pad holder to get over the ball as soon as the tackle in made to disrupt play
