Rugby Drill Demonstration


Learning to lift and work as a a pod of three is the foundation of an effective line out.

Players must also learn to lift whilst moving with the ball player.

Once they are in the correct position. Ensure both payers squat down with a flat back before attempting to lift the player.

Hand placement is key to the lineout lift. The back player must place his hands high up the back of the legs whilst the front lifter lifts with his hands placed just above the knee.

Once this is set in the stop position at the bottom of the lift both players must simultaneously drive up to the extended position. Your lifters will find it useful to also drive their chests forwards moving into the hold.

As soon as the player collects the ball, both lifters must simultaneously lower the player and ensure not to release until the player is safely back on the ground.
