Rugby Drill Demonstration


Tell your players the following.....

  1. The first should of 3 will PUSH, drifting across and HIT the pads together.
  2. They will then advance and do the same at the next 2 sets of pads before returning to their start position to go again.
  3. The second group of defenders can go when they feel there is enough space between them and the first group.
  4. That's it - lets get to work.
  • Don't forget to change the defenders and bag holders.
