All the games in this session have been designed to favour the attacking team and develop your players' quick thinking and key decision making skills. By coaching this session with your team you'll improve how they exploit a mis-match in the opposition's defence and create more try-scoring opportunities.
What's in the session?
Players learn best when they're having fun so this session is made up entirely of conditioned games. We kick off with a warm up game of Mind the overlap. Following on from this we then set up a larger game which works specifically on getting your team to attack quickly and not allow the opposition time to set up their defence.
To keep up the high intensity it's then time for another small-sided game where your forwards have two separate try lines which they can score on (to stretch the defence and create gaps) before bringing everyone back together for a final full pitch game.
Additional session note:
Allow your players the freedom to explore different attacking methods and ways to expose a defence. This is crucial because in games over 80% of tries are scored due to a turnover and exposing a weakness in defence.
Add an extra dimension to your game plus scrub up on the absolutely essential kicking techniques with this kicking session packed of videos and drills.
Improve your players decision making to help them recognise where the space will develop and how they can maximise their success when they create the space, either by going into contact and offloading, or passing before the tackle.
After building up some preseason contact resilience, it?s time to refine players tackling techniques to build their confidence as players go into contact. Focus on the technique and develop their willingness to go into tackles properly to improve success rate and reduce chances of injury.

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
