Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Tell your players the following.........

  1. The coach will call a number e.g. 1.
  2. That attacking group must attack, aiming to score a try at the opposite end of the grid.
  3. The defence must try to stop them.
  4. Simple as that - except the number calls will be quick - there will be no delays between attacks, so the defence must be Sharpe and respond quickly to what they see.
  5. That's it - lets play.
  • Don't forget to change the defenders.

COACHING POINTS

  • Defenders work in a line.
  • Space is closed quickly.
  • Defenders communicate.
  • Each defender is aware of the position and speed of the defenders to their left and right.
  • Defenders do not commit too soon, or rush up too quickly.
