Realignment & Depth - 5 v 4

The realignment and depth hands drill is a quick drill to focus the players in sharpening their alignment and depth before a session. You can spend as long or as short on this drill as you need. The aim of the drill is to develop the speed at which players realign themselves, to support their early hand-catch, quick and accurate transfer of the ball to a support player. Set a 5 cones 1.5 meter apart in straight line. This will mark where the players will start the drill from Set 4 cones at a diagonal in line with the starting cones from one edge. This will be the cones that the defending players need to retreat to before coming up to pressure the attacking players. The first attacking player needs to step back 1 meter and will receive the ball from the first defending player who has also stepped back 1 meter to his designated cone Divide the group into 4 attacking player and 5 defending players, there should be a free attacking player The ball starts with the defending player On the coaches call, all defending players need to work back to their designated cone and then come forward in a straight line to their opposite attacking player The attacking players set their own depth to ensure they have time to catch and pass effectively On the coaches call, the first defending player will move back to their cone, once they get to the cone they pass the ball to the first attacking player, and then the first defending player tries to put pressure on the first attacking player The attacking players try to get the ball to the 5th player without being ‘touched’ by a defending player

Looking to open a bit of a debate. I was running a?

Looking to open a bit of a debate. I was running a 'coach the coaches' course last night and I asked the candidates 'do you coach your players to run at the man? or run at space?'. There was a 50/50 split, the older coaches said 'the man', younger ones 'the space', and others who'd never played before 'both!'. What do you coach?

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 ?

How can I improve my players 1 on 1 tackling

I have noticed that a lot of children try to tackle with their hands instead of their shoulders, does anybody else have this problem and what can I do to remedy it. Larger players run straight through a poor hands only defence, kids trying to grab at jerseys and coming up with nothing. Thanks for any input

U13s rules explained

I'm just after a little clarification regarding the current U13s rule changes as several teams we have played this season have different interpretations:0Can the scrum half scoot straight from the base of the scrum?Can 1st receiver on a free pass run with the ball once he's received it?What are rules around the movement of a scrum?I think we've got the rules right, i'd just like some confirmation.ANdrew

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.
