The first player runs out to the 5 meter line then stops, turns slightly and gives a little pop pass to player 2 and holds the ball for player 2, who then runs on for 5 meters and stops, turns slightly and gives a little pop pass.
When player 5 gets the ball a try is scored and the group will have travelled 25 meters in total in a straight line.
When the group has finished they will be standing in a straight line in a chain 5 meters apart.
This game you can pass and run with the ball in any direction.
The coach will pick a direction for the team to play, the other team will try stop them from scoring.
When the attacker gets touched its a turn over.
Attacking team have to make a certain amount of passes before scoring.
Set up a grid roughly 5m x 5m with two lines of attackers on one side (blue), and two defenders on the other (red). The aim of the drill is for attackers to execute 2 vs 1 situations and score. The attackers start with the ball and run towards the try line (red cones). The ball carrier draws the defender and passes to his support player who scores. Once he scores he passes the ball to the next set of attackers who attack against the next defender. The previous attackers and defender get in position for the next repetition. The attack can start from any of the players, it does not have to start at the same side each time.

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.
