Rugby: Ball & Player

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

DESCRIPTION

Tell the players the following.....

  1. This is all about tackling at chest height.
  2. The facing player will advance, they will be the tackler.
  3. The bag carrier should advance as well.
  4. The tackler makes a chest height hit on the bag, taking the bag with them.
  5. The next defender on the other side does the same, taking the bag with them.
  6. When each player completes their role, they should join the opposite line, ready to go again.

COACHING POINTS

  • Defenders hit hard with their shoulder, driving through and winning the contact.
  • Defenders aim to hit the bag at chest height.
  • Defenders hit, squeeze, and drive.
  • Defenders must keep their heads up.
  • Foot position allows defenders to remain in control at the point of contact, the mindset must be one of remaining strong and controlling the contact.
