Rugby Drill Demonstration


Grid set up with one narrow area and one wide area.

4x defenders, 7x attackers. Defenders positioned on line facing the attacking 'scrum base'. Attacker 1 at base picks up and passes the ball to attacker 2 coming short (at angle).

Ball is secured quickly and passed to attacker 3, remaining attackers enter grid and look to organise a exploit overlap or attack mismatch (either player with pad or different colour bib) if appropriate. Either option would result in success for attackers.

Defenders cannot reorganise across wide area until ball has left narrow space. Once they are able to move across their aim is to push up to provide pressure to attackers.

• Scan the defence

• Pressure the space

• Identify mismatches
