Rugby: Crash Through 2 Tackle Bags

Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Basic but good warm up drill for matches.

4 cones set up a grid of about 5-10m by 5-10m. 2 defenders with tackle shields start in the centre.

Attacker starts at the base of grid running onto and catching a pass from the next attacker. Attackers then run through the two defenders with tackle shields to score a try. The attacker that passed the ball immediately goes to starting position (base of grid) to be passed a ball and start the next repetition while the scorer joins the line to make a pass.

COACHING POINTS

  • Receive the ball at pace and with both hands out in front of your chest.
  • At contact sink the hips and drive legs with leading shoulder making the initial contact, drive through contact shields making sure you keep hold of the ball to go and score.

    PROGRESSION

    You can vary it by any means you like and for what you need it for. I often make them offload the ball after the contact so it means you could be in a three and have two offload options.
