how do i coach the miss pass in rugby?
If you look at the practice below you can use it to coach the miss pass.
The key points are:
I hope this helps you.
I have found that the above drill works well. What puts some people especially juniors off is the distance of the pass so set up the above drill and just remove the middle player getting the guys used to passing over that distance then add the dummy runner as the pass is improved
The most important thing to get across is why are they using a miss pass? and how do they expect to support once the pass has been made?
You then have to get them practicing both the miss in front and miss behind pass, because they both serve a different purpose. If we miss in front, we may look at the 'missed' man taking a circular pass i.e. an immediate pass just inside or behind as he makes a looping run. If we miss behind we have to pay attention to the 'missed' man making a run as decoy to convince his oppo that he's the receiver.
The miss behind may involve a bit of tweaking with running lines, with the missed man running a slight 'in' line and the receiver a slight 'out' line.
I agree with Ollie. Get the players used to accurate passing over longer distances ( I use a pass developer ball) and then run the 'missed man' scenarios.
In addition to what the other guys are saying, I find it necessary to coach the receiver as much as the passer. Longer passes are slower from hand to hand, and you must make sure the receiver is attacking the ball in the correct way so as not to over or under run his pass.
