Rugby Drill Demonstration


  • Ball starts with inside player on the black cone.
  • He runs a diagonal line and switches with outside player on black cone.
  • He releases the ball before the outside player passes behind him.
  • The outside player (now on the inside) offloads to the inside player on the red cone.
  • Ball carriers from black cone reload onto red cones.
  • Repeat.
