Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

Set up two lines of 3 cones, about 10 meters apart, with players on each of the three cones. On the coach's whistle players play out a 3v2 (always 3 attackers and 2 defenders).

Defenders should look initially to defend the first 2 attackers.

Coaching points

Make sure timing of run by attacking line is correct. Hands up, reach with the ball.

This practice is an excellent way to put pressure on your players' handling skills.

Both attack and defence need to organise themselves with communication (players should be talking throughout).

With low ability groups make the defence passive and build from that point.
