Rugby Drill Demonstration


Fun game to practice passes/kicks not being intercepted.

Divide players into two equal teams and set up two grids (one small and one big - see diagram).

The blue team are divided in half with half in the small grid, and half outside the big grid. They are trying to pass/kick the ball between themselves to score points - one for every pass/kick which is caught on the full.

The red team are trying to intercept the passes/kicks or distract the blue team players. They cannot leave big grid or enter the small grid.

Players in the small grid cannot leave the small grid
