I recently received this in my "inbox"%3A Building a Flat Line Defence System Dear Rugby Coach, Whether your in the northern hemisphere and winding down for this season, or maybe already planning for next, or your in the southern hemisphere and the new season has just begun, this week we are pleased to present the workings of a Flat Line Defensive System. The following is the principles of how the system is implemented, Full Members can download the training drills to coach the system with their team. Upgrade to full access today. When teaching any defensive formation, you must always consider, how it works both in open play / set-pieces and from the breakdown, and that all players understand the roles they play. Priniciples for Open Play Key pointsThe make sure you choose the system to fit playing strength%3A Either IN-2-OUT or OUT-2-IN. Considering using INSIDE-2-OUT Midfield Gain-Line never broken. Surrender very wide attack to cover defence. Offensive 2m tackles. Pendulum wide cover. Huge communication requirements. Step-in System. Up and Drift. Forgive me but I haven't got a scooby do (clue) what the above means - please could the technobabble be explained (maybe we should start a dictionary of coaching terms?)

Rucking Problems

My team is having trouble going past the ball when rucking. We are working on body heights and hitting past the ball but any suggested drills would be a great help.

Ian Stenson Coach, England

Forward running; positoning after breakdown

I am trying to explain to my Under 12 forwards where they should run to after a breakdown. Inevitably the committed lads end up running from ruck to ruck without getting there hands on the ball. How do you coach positioning? When to hang in the back line, when to cover wide, when to set up a chain play? Traditional unopposed has the forwards going thru ruck after ruck when the backs have broken the play down but how do you explain positioning to the big men?

My coach has put me at openside flanker and I'm confused of where i should be after the scrum. Should I be attacking the opposing scrum half or just trailing behind the backs waiting to clean up/ form a ruck? It would be great to know what I'm doing !

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.
