ELV's 22m rule, kicking clear from your 22.

With the new 22m ruling in the ELV's the ball cannot be carried or passed into the 22 and kicked directly into touch. Does this rule apply if a ball carrier is tackled and forced into their 22 or if the ball is carried into the 22 and then the ball carrier is tackled inside their 22? In either of these situations is the team in possession allowed to kick directly to touch without a lineout being awarded to the opposition from the position where the ball was kicked?

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.

U9's%3A Can the catcher run straight through the lineout ?

In under 9s the line-out is uncontested... can the player receiving the ball simply turn and run straight through the opposition's line or does he have to pass the ball / set up a maul ?

Hi All. could anyone advise me of a drill/game that would help with my backs defensive alignment and attacking alignment from a ruck. At the moment all of my backs lose their shape and get drawn into the ruck or follow the ball leaving a overlap. Cheers Iain

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.

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.
