Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Player A passes to player B and closes Player B down. Player B attacks Player A.

Use the lateral drag with sole and push back to deceive the defender and beat them on the outside.

Player B passes to Player A to restart practice.

COACHING POINTS

Players should be encouraged to work on the deception of the drag and the push.

The push should be strong enough to move the ball away from the oncoming defender. The first few times the practise is run, the defender should be passive.
