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

DESCRIPTION

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.

COACHING POINTS

Make sure all players stay in a straight line together.

A good drill to help bring players up together in a solid line while defending.

Vary the drill by making all players do press up at each set of cones.
