Rugby Drill Demonstration


  • The first group of 4 starts at the top of the grid, moving forward. The ball should be with the outside player, who makes a short pass in to his supporting runner, who then makes a long pass to the next receiver in the other short passing box, they will then make a short pass to the last receiver. The players realign and do the same again in the opposite direction.
  • When they get to the end of the grid, they go around the cones to their starting position, while the next group goes.
  • They should change position in the line, and when ready, they start again.
