Rugby Drill Demonstration


  • Excellent drill to put defenders in game situations and having to make decisions. 
  • Defenders go from defending one side into the other. One side they looked a blitz because they have even number and tight space. 
  • On the other wide side, defence will have to go up and drift because the attackers have more numbers and space. 
  • 1 scrum-half, 4/5 defenders. One side with 4/5 attackers in 15 m width. The other side with 6/7 attackers in a 40 m area. 
  • Important that defenders talk what they are doing as the unit even when tired. Line speed is vital in both Blitz and drift. Must get guarding the position early.
