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

DESCRIPTION

The player with the ball walks slowly in front of the other player.

As the ball carrier is walking the defender should time their move so that they in the correct position to tackle when the player is in front of them.

At this point the tackler should wrap their arms tightly around the other player's knees, position their head behind their bum and drive with their shoulder to bring the player to the ground.

Falling to their bum before rolling onto their shoulder, once on the floor the other player should place the ball above their head on the ground.

COACHING POINTS

Repeat 4 times each to reinforce the correct technique before changing player's roles over.
