Backline Scanning - Reacting to the unknown!

Rating: 3
from 7 members ratings

Don't let your team succumb to static mode rugby! Instead use this plan to teach them to look up and play against what's in front of them, making intelligent decisions on the move and using the support.

Even at the highest levels you can see (as a spectator) that often there's an easy advantage to be made with overlaps or a pass to the side but instead, the player ploughs senselessly into a wall of defence - losing the momentum of the attack.

What's in the Session?

To prevent this sort of heads down rugby, this plan has been designed to speed up your players' scanning skills by introducing them to random defence patterns, often after starting them off with their backs to the opposition to reduce their sight time and getting them to react quickly to the unknown!
