I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a...
Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Tell your players the following......

  1. One group of 3 will be on the bottom right cones, the attack - they should have a ball each.
  2. The other group of 3 will be on the bottom left, starting at the furthest away cone - they will be the defence.
  3. On the coaches call, the first attacker (with ball) will run to the opposite end of the grid, in order to score a try.
  4. At the same time a defender will leave the last cone and will try to touch or tackle them.
  5. When all attackers have made it, the defence will move close (up one cone).
  6. The exercise continues forcing the attack to move at greater speed.
  • Don't forget to change the attackers and defenders.

COACHING POINTS

  • Attackers come onto the ball at pace.
  • Defenders closer down the attackers at pace.
  • Attacker use changes in direction, foot-speed, hand off, etc. to evade the defender.
  • Attackers dive for the line, when needed.
  • Attackers are no afraid to experiment and make decisions.
