Rugby Drill Demonstration


Tell your players the following.....

  1. Trackers will pass the ball and tag the evades.
  2. Evade simply avoid getting tagged with the ball.
  3. If tagged, a player must join the tracking team. They must remove their bib.
  4. That's it - play.

Coaching points

  • Attackers track and match the pace and position of those wishing to evade, they allow the ball to do the work.
  • Evaders use changes in foot speed, direction, and read body language of attackers in order to evade getting tagged.
  • Heads need to by up on both sides.
  • Communication and teamwork needs to be at the heart of those attacking and evading.
  • Attackers use the touchlines, to close evaders down - they learn they are more effective as a team than individuals.
