Rugby | Ruck Drills

HOW TO USE THESE DRILLS...

A ruck occurs when the ball carrier is tackled and players from each side make contact over the ball which is on the ground (it differs from a maul where the ball stays in the hands of the ball carrier).

The ruck videos and drills below contain clear coaching advice and tips explaining the correct technique for how to enter the ruck through the gate, make powerful and safe contact and how to powerfully drive and clear the ruck.

The laws of the game state a player can only join a ruck from behind the back foot of the last player and the player has to bind properly using the whole arm. This passage of play ends when the ball leaves the ruck.

Sportplan rugby has played a large role in my team's love for the game!

Heather Weston Rugby Coach, United States

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a player for my local club and we don't have a coach at the moment so I, as a senior player, am filling that gap. With your help, the team has been able to improve our skills.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
