Rugby Drill Demonstration


This is a game type warm up that can be used to introduce tackling or to recap on tackling.

The aim of the game is for those in the coloured square to use their agility and pace to reach the empty zone. Colours can only run on teacher command (ie. "Blue!")

Pupils in the centre are the 'Sharks' - it is their job to tackle the running players; once tackled, you become a shark!
