Rugby Drill Demonstration


Blue: Tackler (On Knees)
Red: Tacklee (Standing)

1. Tackler will practice hitting opponent just above the knees as they are walking/jogging towards them. 
-Tackler is not wrapping, just hitting with shoulder in "sweet spot"

2. Tackler will hit above knee with shoulder and then punch through
-Tackler should actually physically make a punch and hit hard into legs

3. Tackler will hit above knee with shoulder, punch through, and then wrap with a "circle of death." After firm wrap, hold an upright plank position.

4. Put all pieces together to follow through and execute the hit.

*Focus is on timing and where you hit to most effectively take your opponent down*
