Groups of 4 and two groups of defenders with contact pads. 1 ball per group.
In groups of four, the ball carrier runs out, turns and passes the ball to the second player. The first player then becomes a defender. Player 2 goes into contact and tries to drive the defender forward but when stopped, slides down to ground and presents the ball. Player 3 then drives over player 2, clearing the defender out of the way. Player 4 picks up the ball and runs on to the end where the drill is restarted running back down the grid
Player 1 runs out with ball but player 2 has stepped up to meet them halfway.
Player 1 drives into player 2 - goes two steps before then going to ground.
Player 2 steps over the player on the ground, picks up the ball and runs on to be met by player 3 who takes the next contact.
4 blue players must try and defend with shields two gates from the attacking red team.
The ball carrying player must meet the defending players and then go to ground and place the ball. Once this has been done the attacking side must form bind together and ruck the shields out of the way - to 'come through the gate'.
The final red player to come through collects the ball and runs anti-clockwise to the next gate and the next set of defenders to repeat the drill.
The two original defenders must now move to defend the other side of the grid.
