Rugby Drill Demonstration


The idea of this is to get correct lay back of the ball in the tackle and toreatain possesion. We set up with two players with pads and a tackler without. The player with the ball runs at the tackler who has to make the tackle, meanwhile the ball carriers support players run around the cones. Once the tackle has been made the players with the pads try and get over the ball whilst the players support runners try and clear them out.

Coaching points

Tackling - putting the player on the ground

Rucking - committing to getting into the ruck rather than waiting for someone else

Body Position - hitting the ruck low and driving through (Tower of Power)

Support - Getting to the player with the ball quickly
