Rugby Drill Demonstration


Step 4: Ball carrier will take ball into contact, obviously trying to get as best carry as possible.

Defenders will try prevent this by making a dominant tackle.

Support players must come with low body positions and good clear out. 

Coaching points

Ball Carrier

  • Good carry
  • Good body position for ball placement (like in diagram or as close as possible), Long Body
  • Placement with 2 hands, look after the ball

Cleaner & Sealer:

  • Must be low, good body positions & focus on gettting them to come in legally.
  • Sealers must finish it off correctly


  • Tacle low, nearly same body position as the cleaners & sealers
  • Robbing the ball isn't that important, tackle & communication in defence most important parts
