Rugby Drill Demonstration


Have 8-10 players standing in a line with a scrum half at the end a few metres in front.

Scrum half passes the ball to a player. Passing down the line for 4-6 passes and moving forward until the ball reaches the end of the line. Not every player has to touch the ball.

Then the person at the end passes a long ball back to scrum half, and they turn and do the same in the other direction.

Coaching points

  • Focus on good passing and catching skills, accuracy



  • Change the width/ speed
  • All players must touch the ball
  • Add 2-3 Defenders in for decision making
