Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

Tell your players the following......

  1. Whichever group of 2 is given the ball becomes the attack, and should attack upon receiving the ball.
  2. The opposite group of 2 becomes the defence, and should defend right away.
  3. The object of the exercise is for the defence to turn the ball, and for the attack to score a try by cross the defences line and touching the ball down.
  4. Dropped balls, knocked on, forward passes etc. are illegal and will be consider a point for the defence.
  5. Illegal actions by the defence will be consider a point for the attack.
  6. Each group of two should keep their own score.
  7. When the attack is over, the ball should be returned to the coach for the next phase.
  • Have more than one training area in order to keep your players as active as possible.

Coaching points

  • All players hands are out and ready to catch the ball.
  • The attack and defence must react quickly.
  • Defenders communicate. Communication is effective, efficient, and encouraging.
  • Attackers work to attack space, if there is none - they seek to create it.
  • Attackers draw defenders away from where the ball will be passed to, they use changes in foot-speed and direction to attack space.
