Heather, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • The ball carrier advances, running diagonally across the grid with the player on the other cone doing the same, but with a delay.
  • The ball carrier can then switch or back flick the ball to the supporting runner.
  • The supporting runner passes the ball back to the nearest player waiting from the next group, when they get the ball, they go.
  • That's it, play.

COACHING POINTS

  • Ball carrier carries the ball in two hands.
  • Supporting players time their run.
  • Communication needs to be good between the ball carrier and supporting player.
  • Ball carried should experiment with their pass, and not be afraid to cancel.
  • Flicks should have air time.
  • Support players should hit the ball at pace.
