Rugby Drill Demonstration


Acting hooker throws the ball in to his partner. The receiver turns and backs in to the defender, setting up a mini maul. After 3 attempts each the players rotate so everyone tries every role.

Coaching points

  • Hooker must throw ball straight
  • Receiver must catch the ball and turn immediately to present and protect the ball
  • Turning when receiving also means any dropped balls go backwards and stay in play
  • Defending player must wait until the attacker is on the ground and then bind on and try to drive him back
