Rugby Drill Demonstration


· One team starts with the ball. The first pass must always go
backwards, after this they can pass the ball any direction
· Attackers can’t run with the ball
· If an attacker, drops the ball or passes a non rugby style
pass (netball pass is fine) i.e. Gridiron, then the ball is turned
· The attacking team scores by passing the ball into the in goal
· After they score the game restarts with the other team from
the goal line with the first pass being backwards.

Coaching points

Coaching Points
· Short passing and moving into space is much more effective
than long Hail Mary passes that allow the defenders time to steal
the ball
· Players should attempt to move into space
· Encourage players to support the ball carrier
· Not all passes have to be forward
