Rugby: Diamond shape supporting lines

Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training....
Tyrone, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • This is an exercise for continuity and support for attacking play
  • Lay out a rectangular playing area, with four attackers and minimum three defenders
  • The attackers begin in a diamond formation, with the ball carrier at the front
  • The defenders are then stacked in rows, one defender per row, spread out diagonally
  • The ball carrier is tackled by the first man, and offloads to one of the two supporting attackers
  • The receiver of the pass runs and is tackled by the next defender and they offload to one of two supporting attackers
  • As one of the four attackers will be on the floor from a tackle, the next phase will include three attackers, who should be in an arrow formation
