How to run a swerve

I want to break down the running of a swerve into component parts so these can be coached. eg if you are swerving to the right, i read that the right leg should cross over the left so you naturally start falling to the right.Can you help?

Cross kicking from a penalty?

I've seen this several times but most recently in the Currie up championship this weekend. -penalty awarded within opposition's 22m -one of the halves picks up the ball gets to the mark -tap kicks then cross kicks to an open wing, flanker, etc. -try time. Here are my questions%3A 1)Is there any law that makes the half tap kick before cross kicking to his player? 2)Wouldn't crosskicking straight away provide a cushion? If he botched the kick and it went out of bounds, wouldn't a line out be awarded to his team?

Looking for day 0 skills to teach children?

I am looking for a Day 0 type of session for American children who may have never held a rugby ball. If I move forward with a rugby exhibition/team creation in the neighborhood, I want to make sure I know how/what to teach Day 0. I'm hoping that interest is growing for touch and flag rugby due to the recent in Philadelphia between the USA Eagles and the Maori All Blacks. I was there. It was fantastic. Tickets sold out so fast, I think there will be more of these in the area. Thanks.

How can I overcome my son's fear of tackling?

Reduce Numbers in rucks

Hi. I coach a B level under 12 team at school with very mixed abilities. All the other teams we play put all there forwards into the rucks and therefore we have to, to win the ball. Is there a way I can combat this with a few less players in the ruck?

Heather Weston Rugby Coach, United States

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a player for my local club and we don't have a coach at the moment so I, as a senior player, am filling that gap. With your help, the team has been able to improve our skills.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
