Coaching points

  • Ball carriers carry the ball in two hands, but be flexible if players wish to experiment. Discuss the pros and cons with them.
  • Question, don't tell. Rugby is a simple game, draw the coaching points from your players.
  • Ball carriers use footwork to avoid contact, or to move out of contact quickly, giving them a better position to off-load the ball.
  • Support runners communicate giving the ball carrier information about timing, position etc.
  • Attackers use a variety of passes.
  • Allow players to experiment and have fun.
