Rugby Drill Demonstration


Full line in defence set up - full back floating. Ball is rolled forward, defensive line moves forward to meet ball and "make tackle". Line the retreats back to onside line when ball is played to another direction. 

Coaching points

Ball can be played forward to the defence line or backward to bring defensive line forward.

Advanced options -

1. Have forwards simulate game play and move towards the breakdown

2. Backs to realign each "breakdown"

3. Simulate counter defense with ball kicked backwards

4. simulate scramble defence by kicking ball over top of defensive line
