Rugby Drill Demonstration


  • Players start at the cones, pass the ball one circuit clockwise and one circuit anticlockwise.
  • Following the two circuits, they take one step back. Thus making the circle bigger.
  • They then repeat the 2 circuits of passing the ball around the circle, before taking another step back.
  • Repeat until the circle is so big that the players are having trouble completing their pass.
