Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

Players work in groups of four against two defenders (holding tackle bags) who are stood inside the channel.

The attackers run around the furthest cone into the channel and ruck to push back the first defender stood over the ball.

Once the ball has been gathered the attackers run towards the second defender and form another ruck (ball carrier should turn before contact is made).

Once the bag holder has been forced back players carry the ball over the line.

Coaching points
