Heather, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • The aim of the drill is to develop players understanding of support lines 
  • Players work in groups of 4 in attack
  • Set up 5 defenders with pads, in a 2-2-1 formation
  • Attackers focus on beating the defence by drawing the opposition or breaking through the pad and offloading to supporting players

COACHING POINTS

  • Players must work hard to give the ball carrier support on both sides
  • Ball carrier must try and centralise (work to the middle of the channel)
  • Accuracy and depth off play is vital.
  • Attackers start the drill in a box shape and feeder always hits the middle man.
