Rugby Drill Demonstration


A player (blue) lies on the floor with the ball, rolling side to side with the ball.

On the coaches whistle, the blue player stops on the side he is on.

The 2 sets of competing players (yellow and red) attempt to either secure the ball or steal it, depending on which way the blue player is lying.

Coaching points
