Rugby Drill Demonstration
Set up 4 cones in a square, and get the players to form equal lines behind each cone.
The ball starts with a player on one cone who runs towards the cone to his right and passes the ball across the square to a player from the next cone running onto the ball. He catches the ball and continues his run, passing the ball to someone from the next cone running onto the ball.
Change the direction which the ball is going
Get the players to change direction on your command (shout/whistle)
Multiple balls at a time
As a group must complete 10 successful passes before the session can move on, every time a ball is dropped the whole group does an exercise (e.g. 10 press ups).
Passing technique - high elbow, hands follow through towards the target
Catching technique - hands up and arms extended from the body as a target -> Call for the pass.
Get players to aim the passes in front of the receiver so the receivers can run onto the ball
Communication is important to stop the drill breaking down
