Rugby Drill Demonstration


The group is split in half.

The coach is positioned behind the defenders and instructs the movement of the attackers, who are holding tackle shields.

Defenders must mirror the movement of the attackers.

If the coach indicates right, the attackers move right.

If the coach raises his hands in the air, the attackers move forwards and the defenders move up in a line to meet the tackle shields.

The two lines then retreat and the drill continues.
