Rugby: Counter Ruck

What a fantastic tool. I've found a few drills that are unfamiliar,...
Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Condition the drill in favour of 1 team, in this case the blue team.

All players lay on their fronts behind the tackle bags. On the coaches whistle, the 2 teams move to contest possession.

The blue players can move straight over the bag to contest, but only the 1st red player can do the same. The other 2 red players have to run round the cones before moving in to counter ruck.

COACHING POINTS

  • players get used to counter ruck call/ signal
  • low to high drive, with emphasis on driving opposition through the ruck
  • eyes open, grab hold of hook/handle to clear out
