Rugby Drill Demonstration


2 players work together and stand opposite one another facing each other.

They pass a ball between them as they stand about 3m apart

The coach indicates which direction the players must move in, this forces the 2 to communicate as one player can see the coach and the other can not.

On the whistle the player with ball in hand must try and beat his opponent.


Progress the drill by having the players roll the ball to each other.

Progress further by having the players chip or grubber to one another.
