Rugby Handling Drills

Handling in rugby covers how your player holds, catches and runs with the ball. Good ball carrying technique should include your player's fingers being spread out, in the shape of the ball (fingers forming a cage-like structure around the ball).

The handling videos and drills below will boost your players' ability to pass, move and receive the ball from kicks and throws using 3v2v2 and competitive passing drills.

Using these individual and team handling drills your players will develop their ability to hold the ball in one and two hands, protecting it from the other team, and making it easier to pass to team-mates.
