Tonight we're going to start the development of your lineout. Possibly the most complicated unit skill of all and one that is fundamental to coaching a winning side.
As the Lions found out to their cost in New Zealand 2005. You MUST win the lineout battle if you're going to win the game.
You can never spend too long practicing your lineout. Also, use your best jumpers and throwers. They aren’t always the hooker and the two 2nd rows!
Instil confidence and tackle toughness into your players with this tackling from the front, side and back session! Build their knowledge of the benefits of tackling and how different type of tackle can determine the way the phase plays out.
Get your team the fastest and most agile out there. As the season deepens, we all need to stay on top of our game; make sure every position is covered with this intense drill.
Teach your team to ruck safely, effectively and quickly. By going 'through the gate' you'll avoid giving away penalties and encourage better binding
Create a resolution to develop your coaching confidence by seizing the opportunity to discover new drills, turn ideas into action and seek advice from the coaching community.
Don't find yourself having to regain fitness when you get back to sport after the Christmas break. Keep on top of your exercise plans now and give yourself a head start next year!
Losing is inevitable and it's how we deal with it that will help us to grow as coaches and improve our team's performance.
