Rugby Drill Demonstration


Drill to practice passing laterally.

Set up a diamond roughly 10m wide and 5m long (see diagram).

Two players position themselves at either end and one player is in the middle.

The player in the middle is running shuttles across the diamond, each time he runs a shuttle he must catch a pass from one feeder, and pass it to the other one before completing the shuttle.

Players should do twenty repetitions each and then swap positions.
