Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

IN THIS GAME THE AIM IS TO ATTACK IN A NARROW ZONE AND THEN MOVE THE ATTACK ACROSS MORE ZONES WHEN INSTRUCTED.

TO START THE ATTACKING TEAM WILL PLAY DOWN ZONE ONE AND DEFENCE WILL DEFEND IN ZONE 1. ALL PLAY MUST BE IN THAT ZONE.

THERE SHOULD BE MORE RUCKS SET UP IN THE NARROW SPACE, THIS WILL FOCUS ON THE RUCKING TECHNIQUE AND TACKLING.

ONCE THERE HAS BEEN A FEW PLAYS THE COACH WILL SHOUT OUT " 1 + 2" THIS WILL NOW MEAN THEY CAN NOW PLAY OVER ZONES 1 + 2. THE IDEA IS THEY SHOULD REALISE HOW MUCH SPACE THEY HAVE AND FILL THE SPACE. IN DEFENCE THEY MARK UP MAN

COACH CAN PROGRESS TO "1,2+3" TO PLAY IN THE WHOLE PITCH
