Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

3 players (One player in Tackle Suit, one ball carrier and one support player) and one ball.

Ball carrier attacks suited player and takes leg tackle. The suited player returns to feet an competes for ball before the support player clears.

COACHING POINTS

Encourage full tackle with use of strong arms and a quick return to feet. Suited player should adopt a low strong position over ball with weight on feet.

Encourage maximum knee bend to secure lowest best body position.

Clear out player should adopt low body angle on approach, hence knees bent, shuffle footwork, eyes on target, head up. Target lower sternum of suited player.

Big impact and drive player up and off the ball with strong leg drive with short steps.
