Rugby: Attack/Defend Big Time

Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Tell your players the following......

  1. Players will standing at the midway point of the playing area, about 25 meters in.
  2. Tell each team which direction they are playing.
  3. Set the ball on the ground in front of the players.
  4. If you call 1 then team one is in attack and they should pick the ball up, if you should 2 then team 2 is in attack and they should pick the ball up.
  5. The non attacking team is in defence.
  6. Normal rules of sevens apply.
  7. However, before each team can start their attack/defence, they must all run to their own try line and back.
  8. When the attack is over, all players return to the midway point to start again.
  9. That's it, lets play!

Make sure that you give both teams a chance to attack and defend.

COACHING POINTS

  • Both the attack and the defence work hard to get to position quickly.
  • Attackers scan the pitch for attacking opportunities, and communicate them.
  • Attackers work in groups, employing the teams attacking patterns to make the best use of space.
  • Attackers offer support to the ball carrier.
  • Passers follow their pass.
