Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

Set up one small grid (5x5m), one medium grid (10x10m) and one large area (15x15m). Players work in groups of 3 with one ball.

Coach shouts out the name of a square (large, medium or small) and players have to realign quickly inside the coloured square.

The idea of this practice is that players understand how to use the full width of the pitch and realign quickly.

Coaching points

Try to get the players to do this drill at full speed.

Targets to focus on are depth of support runner and pass in front of the player.

Superb practice to keep the tempo high, using the whole width of the pitch, holding back and testing speed of realignment and variety of passes.
