Mokie, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Tell the players the following......

  1. They should advance in 2's.
  2. Hit in on the bag with their shoulder, driving forward and placing their hands on the ground in a press-up position over the ball.
  3. They then clear the area, and the pads reset for the next hit.

COACHING POINTS

  • The player making the hit, hits low.
  • There is a strong shoulder contact.
  • Feet need not to be too far from the contact, provide a strong leg drive forward through the contact.
  • Hands go to ground, but the player remains in a strong body position over the ball.
  • Hands and feet are wide, to provide a stable platform.
  • Shoulders are above, or in line with the hits, knees do not touch the ground.
