DEFENSIVE LINE

Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back...
Eifion, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • 2 PLAYER START ON THE FIRST TWO CONES
  • THEY CALL "HOLD, HOLD,UP" BEFORE MOVING TOGETHER
  • THEY RUN TOWARDS THE PADS AND PUSH OFF THE PADS AND RUN BACK TO THE NEXT CONE, WHILE A THIRD PLAYER JOINS IN AT THE FIRST CONE
  • THEY REPEAT THIS UNTIL ALL CONES HAVE A PLAYER ON THEM
  • ONCE ALL CONES ARE LOADED THEY CLEAR THE PADS OUT

PROGRESSION

  • A BALL CAN BE AT THE PADS FEET AND ONCE THE CONES ARE LOADED THE PADS CAN BE PLACED INFRONT OF THE BALL, PAD HOLDER JACKALS OVER THE PAD AND DEFENSIVE LINE CLEARS PLAYER OUT

COACHING POINTS

WILL HAVE TWO COACHES BETWEEN PADS TO PASS BALL TO EACH OTHER. ONCE THE PASS HAS BEEN MADE THIS IS THE CUE FOR THE DEFENSIVE LINE TO MOVE FORWARD ON THE "UP"

THREE THINGS TO FOCUS ON

  • COMMUNICATION
  • GOOD LINE SPEED TO CUT DOWN SPACE
  • TARGET MAN
