Rugby: Hit and Spin

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

DESCRIPTION

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.

COACHING POINTS

Ensure that players have the correct body position when hitting the shields.

Ensure the spin out is backwards, not forwards.– If hit is with left shoulder, spin clockwise; if right, anticlockwise.

Practice hit and spin on both shoulders.

Two hands on the ball at all times.

Passive resistance only from defenders.
