Lineout Questions- Can you fake jump when it is your?

2 Lineout Questions that are related%3A Can you fake jump when it is your lineout? and Can defenders lift more than 1 jumper? In reviewing tape from our last match I noticed that the opposing team always had someone jump before the actual jumper was lifted. I thought I heard the commentators (Magners league game) say that it was illegal to have more than 1 person have their feet leave the ground. The same opposing team would always pre-jump their first pod before the ball was in the air. Their 2nd pod would also jump and if the ball went to that area they'd usually win it. It's my understanding that each lineout can only lift/jump a single player and NEVER before the ball leaves the hand.

How to coach league players to help transition to union?

Hi, I'm coaching my second team union (as i have injured my knee and cant play for the next few months) and the team consists of mainly league players, so they are rugby minded but will need help getting to grips with union - lineouts scrums when to and not to kick where to kick to etc. Any tips / ideas would be great.

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.

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.
