Rugby: Ruck Turnover Body Position

Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training....
Tyrone, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • The coach pops the ball off to the attacker. The first defender tackles the player to the floor quickly.
  • The second defender arrives and gets low in an attempt to get their hands on the ball prior to a ruck being formed.
  • A second attacking player comes in to try to clear out the second defender.

COACHING POINTS

  • The second defender needs to have strong, low body position.
  • If they do this, the second attacker shouldn't be able to clear them out.
  • Getting in as soon as the tackle is made to get your hands on the ball can mean a quick turnover for your side.
