Rugby Lineout Drills

A lineout is used to restart play, when the ball has left the field of play. Unless your team has "kicked for touch" when awarded a penalty the "throw in" from the line-out always goes to the team who did not hit it out of play.

The lineout technique videos, coaching tips and drills below will develop all aspects of your players' jumping, lifting, catching and throwing-in skills, so they are able to work as a team and compete for the ball - helping them regain possession at the lineout.
