DESCRIPTION

FOCUSING ON THE PENCIL PRESENTATION AND CLEARING RUCK AND PROTECTING BALL

  • BALL CARRIER TAKES BALL INTO CONTACT DRIVING  PAD AND FALLING ON BALL
  • TURN ONTO HIP AND PENCIL PRESENT BALL
  • 1ST PLAYER TO BREAK DOWN CLEARS DEFENCE (PAD) OUT PAST THE BALL
  • 2ND PLAYER TO BREAK DOWN RUCKS BEHIND 1ST PLAYER BUT STOPS OVER THE BALL PROTECTING WITH THEIR FEET
  • 3RD PLAYER IS THE SCRUM HALF AND PASSES TO SUPPORT PLAYER WHO SETS UP NEXT RUCK

ONCE THE PAD HAS BEEN CLEARED OUT BY FIRST PLAYER THE PAD WILL BACK UP A FEW METERS SO THEY CAN SET UP ANOTHER RUCK

3-4 PADS SO WE CAN HAVE 3-4 SEPERATE GROUPS GOING AT SAME TIME
