Rugby Drill Demonstration


Players start with the ball, a few steps back from the crossbar.

They must attempt to get the lift from the tight angle and flight the ball over the crossbar.

After each success they can move a meter closer to the crossbar and repeat.

On each occasion the ball is to land within the target zone as specified by the coach.

Start the target zone quite large and then reduce it in size as the kicker grows more confident.

Coaching points
