Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Set up lines of defenders with pads aligned laterally across your working area. You can either have 1 line so the attacking players work once and in 1 direction or you can have a series of defensive lines so they attackers work continuously off both shoulders.

Rotate defensive units.Work in attacking groups of 5 with 1 ball per group. The attacking groups start at point X.

On the command, Player 1 carries the ball towards defender A. Just before or as the Player 1 makes contact with the tackle shield, Player 2 gets ‘hands-on’ the ball, moving it away from the defender.

Both players then make contact powerfully with the defender (particularly Player 1 and get some go-forward (1 or 2 driving paces) before releasing to the acting half-back when feeds to Players 4 and 5 who repeat into defender B.

Players 1 and Player 2 then loop behind and receive pass from player 3 before engaging defender C.
