how do i coach @hit and spin@ incontact in rugby union

Alex

Key points are:

  • Ball carrier makes small steps as they approach the tackler to keep the tackler wrong footed
  • Ball carrier to plant foot to one side of the tackler and then turn body so their body stays between ball and tackler
  • The ball carrier pushes off the planted foot and spins away as the tackler is committed to the tackle
  • The speed of the spin away should break contact and leave the tackler stranded

Development

Use a supporting player to take a pass at speed after the spin has been made

  • Support player should run to the side of the ball carrier opposite to the planted foot
  • thus if ball carrier plants their right foot to the left of the tackler the support player runs to the right of the tackle and the pass is screened

The following practice could be used to devlop this skill.

I hope this helps you
