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

DESCRIPTION

Tackler starts on their knees. As the ball carrier gets closer the tackler steps up to give them more power and punches through to give them more power. The tackler drives through and finishes on top.

COACHING POINTS

  • Tackler keeps arms close ready to power through
  • Keep your front foot close to the ball carrier for a strong and powerful position
  • Squeeze with the arms to make a ring of steel
  • Tackler should dominate the tackle and finish on top
