Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Tell your players the following......

  1. Players will attack in teams of 3, each attacking unit will have their own ball.
  2. At the pads, the ball carrier must hit and roll or hit and spin or sidestep.
  3. They will then face 3 v 2 situations following each pad.
  4. Their objective is to get to the other side, without making a mistake, and score a try!
  5. The following group of 3 can go when they feel there is a reasonable gap between the attacking units.
  • Don't forget to change your players about.

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.
