Although you may leave the kicking mainly to your fly halfs, it's essential that all of your players can properly execute the punt kick; use this session to fine-tune their technique and make the perfect kick!
The punt kick is a good way to putting your team on the attack, mixing it up from the passing to catch the opposition off guard with a quick ball through to a teammate. It can be crucial to maintaining possession or gaining territory, so it's important that all of your players understand why to kick and when's the perfect moment to do so.
