Coaching the Drift Defence

Get your players thinking their way through this session, focussing on Drift Defence when the opposition have an overlap on the outside.

Preview Plan


  • 2 Teams
  • Attackign and defensive focus. 

Normal game of touch rugby, however whenever the defender touches an attacker, they must run back to their own try line and stay out the game until the play breaks down. 


Coaching points

Attacking Focus;

Players must identify the spaces created by the dropping out defenders. They must work out how to isolate the remaining defenders while working out hwere the overlaps and spaces are. Quicker they score the better the attack.

Defending Focus;

This will be used mainly for drift defence as the defence has less numbers they will have to drift to force the attakcers around the outside. The longer it takes the Attackers to score the better the defence.
