Rugby: Four Player Continuous Passing

Sportplan rugby has played a large role in my team's love for the...
Heather, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • A quick drill to focus the players before going into a session or at the start of a match day warm up.
  • The aim of the drill is to develop early hand-catch, quick and accurate transfer of the ball to a support player.
  • Set 4 cones 3-5 meters apart on the 5 meter line. This will mark the starting point for your players.
  • Set up cones opposite on the try line
  • Ask your players to line up behind each cone.
  • The ball carrier runs out to the cone opposite and passes to the next player
  • Once the player on the end receives the ball, the drill changes direction and the ball goes back in the direction it came from




COACHING POINTS

  • All players to focus on running straight
  • Early hand catch by reaching for the ball
  • Keep hands high (chest height) when transferring the ball to its recipient
  • Finish the pass by ensuring hands go towards the target
  • Players receiving the ball should be encouraged to run towards the ball on receiving it.
  • The ball carrier should try to remain as square as possible.
  • For progression - the end player runs towards the try line and ‘pulls out’ (passes) the ball back to a player from their line of players
