  • 2 on 2 tackling and clear out game.
  • Players line up in two lines, adjacent to the coned gameplay area.
  • The coach stands opposite the two lines with the ball and passes to the front player of either team.
  • The front two players of each team run round the back of their cones and the ball carrier takes the ball into contact.
  • The two secondary players then ruck over and attempt to clear each other out.
  • One team comes away with the ball.

Coaching points

  • No need to pass between players, take the ball straight into contact.
  • Get low when rucking and use your legs to create force and drive through the opponent to clear out.
