3 attackers and 2 defenders.

The scrum half passes to the first receiver of group of 3 attackers.

The 3 attacking players must then pass the ball down the line as they attempt to beat the defenders.

Coaching points

  • Stay balanced
  • First defender stays on 1st attacker
  • 2nd defender stays on 2nd attacker
  • Maximum line speed - close down space quickly
  • Final approach with control - shorten footwork
  • Prepare for contact with a front on tackle as above.
