Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Call for the ball!

Head and eyes up looking at the ball, get in line with the ball.

Quickly move to the ball's 'drop zone'

Adjust position to get under ball, hands up and ready to take ball

Turn the body to protect during contact and also to avoid a potential knock on if dropped ball

Raise one knee to protect yourself from any potential contact (Note: it's illegal to be tackled in the air).

As you land on your feet brace yourself for contact.

COACHING POINTS

Decisions to be made in the moment:
