Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Give the ball to the attacking team and tell your players the following.......

  1. This is touch 7's, other than that - normal rules of 7's apply.
  2. If touched with the ball: the ball carrier stops, 5 of the defenders must be within touching distance of the ball carrier - only 2 can stay out, and this must happen within 3 seconds.
  3. When the attack is happy that the defence has moved in - they can then move the ball away from the contact area - and the game restarts.
  4. There is no limit on the number of touches.
  5. That's it, lets play!
  • Don't forget to give the defence and attack equal time on the ball.
  • This game must be played at pace, so the defence is going to have to work hard!

COACHING POINTS

  • Defenders work rate must be high.
  • Attackers attack space at pace.
  • Passes are weight correctly in terms of distance, and width.
  • Attacker cut back in, across the drift.
  • Attackers are aware of their position on the pitch, and mark every effort not to be isolated in contact.
