Rugby Drill Demonstration


Contact Defence

The aim of the drill is to encourage the tackler to challenge for the space over the ball after the tackle.

Coaching points

  • The emphasis of the tackler is to stay in a low strong profile and drive the shield man out of the way
  • The Shield man should allow enough resistance for the tackler to move him.
