Rugby: Releasing the overlap

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

DESCRIPTION

The scrum half starts with the ball. They pass to the first red player who then passes to the second red player who then passes to red player three into the free space

To start with red defenders must only defend against red 1 and 2.

COACHING POINTS

Receiving players:

Outside foot forward, pass ball across the body and target inside (not in an arc, down and up) and take the ball at pace.

Red 1 and 2 should try to draw the defenders by not passing too early

Progression:

Blue 2 is allowed to read the game and choose who to defend against so red 2 must make the right decision whether to dummy or pass.
