Rugby Drill Demonstration
Simple Attack Vrs. Defence Setup.
Ideal drill would be for the attack to win (as they have a numerical advantage.)
Attack (marked in red) Objective:
- Scrum Half must get ball to 1st receiver
- 1st receiver must then decide which of his options to take
Attacking Options are as follows:
- Judging by the way defence has marked attack in this diagram, option 1 would be a straight pass to "Coffee".
- Go through the hands (1st receiver to Tea, to Coffee), 1st receiver must draw A. Tea must draw B to put Coffee away.
- If defender 'B' drifts over to mark the Coffee attaker, then a hole opens for attacker Tea to take to ball through.
Defensive duties are as follows:
- The pillar stays where he is until the ball has left the ruck. He is there to mark the man (in this case an imaginary attacker)
- The A defender will mark the scrum half, until the ball is gone to the 1st receiver. He will then turn attention to marking 1st receiver.
- Likewise with B, will mark 1st receiver until ball is gone, like his inside man !, he will then shift his attention across '1 man' to mark the Tea attacker.
- Defence should never allow the 1st receiver or Tea to run through them. If defence are to be beaten, they are to be beaten on the outside (This is a defensive system rule - this sometimes happens)
- Tea must be deeper than coffee that allows for the skip pass option.
- Ask players to hold depth & keep concentration.
- Attackers must focus on holding defenders, and accurate passing
- Defenders must concentrate on communication & co-ordination.
