Set up 4 grids of about 8-10m by 5m.
3 players start on the first grid, working from one end to the other, covering the 5m distance.
Players continue working like this, until they reach the end of the grid.
Once the coach blows his whistle the line may press off.
The first player in the line begins with the ball. As he approaches the first cone and passes to player 2 who is supporting. Player 1 carries on their run and hits the tackle bag before running backwards to player 2 original position. Player 2 on receiving the ball passes the ball onto player 3 before hitting the tackle bag and back pedalling to player 3 original position.
When the ball reaches player 5, that player side steps behind the others back to position 1 where the drill is repeated.
Players line up together along the line of the 1st set of cones.
On the signal of the coach all the players advance to the 3rd set of cones (20 meters away), making sure they all keep together in a straight line.
The players then retreat 10 meters to the 2nd set of cones, making sure they stay in line.
From the 2nd set of cones the players then advance a further 20 metres to the 4th set of cones and then retreat 10 meters back, to the previous set of cones.
