  • Tackle Suits. 
  • Ball 

1. 1 v 2 - Shoulders on

1 attacker must run in the middle of 2 defenders, in a small grid.

2. 1 vs 3 - ball involved - full contact. 

In groups of 6, have 3 attackers 3 defenders. 

Attackers pass a ball along the line back and forth until whistle goes. 

Defenders in tackle suits, line up opposite the attackers, when whitle goes the attacker with the ball runs at the defence aiming at the gaps inbetween the defenders. 

the defenders come up as a line. The first defender (usually inside) makes a low chop tackle, while the other second defender aims for man and ball. 

COACHING POINTS

  • Line speed. 
  • 1st defender low hit - possitive impact. 
  • 2nd Defender - aim to stop offload. 
  • Leg drive is essential - as a posiitve hit can lead to a turn over. 
  • the 3rd defender not involved must adjust in - on a line of string. 
  • Lots of noise and aggression.
