Rugby: 7's Colour Touch

Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training....
Tyrone, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Tell your players the following.....

  1. The attack will remain in attack for 5 minutes, you'll then switch over.
  2. Normal rules of sevens apply, but this game will be touch to start with.
  3. When the ball carrier is touched, they must set the ball down, another player can then move it from the ground. The touch is considered a ruck.
  4. When the coach calls a defenders colour e.g. RED - the two players in defence wearing red drop to the ground and complete 3 press-ups, they can then return to their feet and are back in the game.
  5. That's it, play.
  • Keep your player chats brief, but through questioning highlight that the downed players in defence open up space, what do we attack - SPACE!

COACHING POINTS

  • Attackers quickly identify space and confusion in defence, and take advnatge.
  • Defenders work to cover gaps in the defence/
  • Attackers use miss passes and long passes to move the ball quickly to space, taking into account the danger of interception.
  • Attackers work to retain possession, aware that they can wait for opportunities. They don't need to panic or take undue risks.
