Perfecting attack structure

Drills to perfect the 1 3 3 1 attack structure
Asked using Sportplan on Mobile

Hello Pedro,

Firstly, thank you for this question. Three of the best drills in order to perfect the 1 3 3 1 structure is to firstly, get the forward pack to start getting used to working in the "diamond shape" pods of three. Get them used to different formations of the 3 pod and working with each other before, during and after the possession with the ball.

Secondly, getting the forward pack being able to work off 10 (flyhalf) and keep working around the corner. Being able to nominate who is the ball carrier and who will be clearing the ruck and protecting the ball. So communication and decision making is crucial in this process.

Finally, run throughs. Practice makes perfect, so it is crucial that the backs and the forwards get used to working with each other to create space for the outside wingers of fullback. Players must by decisive and direct with their running ensuring that they pull defenders in.

Thank you for the massive help
