Ruck Clear Out - Setup

Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training....
Tyrone, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Drill needs a 6 people.

  • 1 Feeder, preferably a coach that can monitor the attack. His role will be to feed ball carrier.
  • 2 Defenders, which will be players, will line up on the other end of grid. They will move up in a defensive line to make the tackle ONLY WHEN FEEDER HAS GIVEN THE PASS.
  • 3 attackers, numbered 1-3. They will setup facing the oppossite direction to the ball. When a number is called, that player will turn around, take the pass & carry ball into contact. Meanwhile, the remaining attackers will perform an up/down and become the cleaner & sealer.

COACHING POINTS

Attack:

  • Want ball carriers carrying hard (by this I mean, accellerating into the contact)
  • Low body positions, straight back, bend at the knee & leg drive
  • Footwaork is acceptable also rather than a carry, however, still need to pin point the leg drive & good body positions in the contact

Defense:

  • Looking for line speed & coordination between 2 defenders.
  • Need defenders to be at least meeting attackers on gain line (blue cones)
  • Need defenders to be in a flat defensive line.
