  1. The first group of 3 go first.
  2. The first player hits in on the bag with their shoulder, driving forward and placing their hands on the ground in a press-up position over the ball.The second player covers him, and the third acts as a SH moving the ball to the next set of 3.
  3. The next 3 player unit does the same, moving the ball back to the first 3 player unit - which should have reset ready to go again.

Coaching points

  • Players know and understand their roles.
  • Communication is ongoing, player not only talk, they listen.
  • Heads and up, players react to what they see.
  • The speed of the exercise should build, but only when each player is fulfilling their roles correctly.
  • Players should change roles following each ruck.
