Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

The drill starts with two teams of equal players playing a standard game of touch. Whenever a touch is made, the defender immediately joins the attacking side and acts as scrum half. This creates an attacking overload. Players must try to score a try by exploiting the overload in the least amount of touches. The drill resets after a try is scored.

COACHING POINTS

  • Encourage players to scan and exploit the space left by the defender turned attacker
  • Communication from players outside helping to identity space
  • Realignment and quick hands to get the ball wide and exploit the overlap
