Rugby: D1 - Dummy Loop

What a fantastic tool. I've found a few drills that are unfamiliar,...
Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  1. Use the diagram in order to think about the starting position of your players, I suggest that they are not too deep for this one.
  2. 10 passes the ball to 12.
  3. 11 loops behind 12.
  4. 12 advances with the ball.
  5. 12 pass the ball to 11, this should be a close to the defensive line as possible.
  6. 13 runs a line, at speed, close the space between them and 11.
  7. 11 does their best to avoid contact, but if they do take contact, they should attempt to off-load to 13.

COACHING POINTS

  • Think about what could happen if the move needs to be cancelled, what will happen following the move if we pass the gain line and if we are stopped at the gain line.
  • Run this unopposed, before adding pressure.
  • Run this move with pressure as the team gets better.
  • Think about where you will use with move on the pitch.
  • Think about using cones to mark out starting and target points.
  • Allow players to cancel, but if they do cancel, what are their options?
  • Execute the pass from 12 to 11 as close to the defensive line as possible.
  • Players heads need to be up, a move should be a fluid attacking strategy.
  • Think about player foot-speed, do the players need to be running flat out all the time?
