Rugby Maul Drills

A maul is similar to a ruck but occurs when the ball is held up off the floor (in a player's hand).

The maul drills, videos and mini games below will develop your players' technique and ability to drive, present the ball and how to rip it from a teammate to progress the attack.

A ruck is categorised as having three or more players, including the ball carrier and at least one other player from each side, in contact with each other while on their feet. A team will use the maul to recycle the ball after a tackle. Like the ruck, the offside line is the furthest foot of the last teammate bound to the maul.
