Rugby Drill Demonstration


Tell your players the following.....

  1. One player will be the bag man, they will put the bags that have been hit back up again.
  2. Players will start at the bottom of the channel, they will hit the first bag - get to their feet and pick the ball.
  3. They should then set the ball just before the next bag - where they will again make the hit, before getting to their feet and taking the ball. They will repeat this at bag 3.
  4. The bag man - should be tracking and putting the bags up again.
  5. They player that has just went - will become the bag man, and the existing bag man joins the end of the line ready to complete the exercise.
  6. That's it, lets get to work.

Coaching points

  • Players get to their feet pushing up with their hands.
  • They do not use their knees.
  • They take contact, driving through the contact and landing in a forward position, making it easier and faster for them to get to their feet.
  • Players secure the ball using a low body position, bring the ball into the chest with 2 hands.
  • Tacklers aim to hit in with the shoulder, keeping their head up.
