Rugby Contact Skills

A major part of rugby involves two or more players making physical contact with each other. Contact normally takes place during a tackle, lineout, scrum or ruck.

Inexperienced players can find tackling a daunting part of the game, but by following the contact skills videos and drills below you will ensure your players use the correct technique when engaging for scrums, landing after a tackle and offloading - taking the fear out of contact.

Using tag rugby games, 1v1, 3v3, 5 scrum and static tackling drills your players' hitting skills will develop, so they are used to safely make contact and tackle hard, without injury.
