Rating: 4
from 15 members ratings

The session improves speed at the breakdown. Effective rucking is the key to playing front-foot rugby, so you can capitalise on when the opposition's defence is disorganised and retreating onside.

Session objective:

Your players should be able to clear a ruck within 3 seconds using a variety of techniques to ensure they use the breakdown to their advantage.

What's in the Session?

To help your players achieve these goals this competitive and physical plan encourages your players to drive over the ball, from low to high, and to use the long place to get the ball ball away from potential threats.

We kick off with two warm up games and then develop the skill through a combination of tackle bag drills, mini game and the final Ruck Success conditioned game.
