Rugby Drill Demonstration


  • Lineout pod of three players line up.

  • Players at the front and back facing inwards towards the middle player.

  • The lineout taker initiates the game with a call and movement to either the left or right.

  • The three pod players follow to that side.

  • The front and back players lift the middle player in the pod in the air and the thrower throws the ball to the middle player.

  • The front and back players then bring the middle player down and the game resets.

Coaching points

  • Lineout thrower should mix up which side to throw to.
