Staying onside games/drills for under 8s tag rugby

Looking for some drills or games to help my under 8s stay on side and not stand in the way during tag rugby.Any suggestions??

One thing that I have found helpful is to not coach all players to stand on the offside line, but instead reimagine an 'onside area' which is anywhere between your own try line and the ball. Defending along a line is too easily taken for granted by anyone who has experienced rugby, but for many beginners they may be more used to a more '3D' style of defence that you may find in football, hockey etc.
Just a potential idea :)
