Rugby Drill Demonstration


Red: D Blue: O

-When you call out either A, B, C or D, the attacking group at that side attacks through the square, beating the defenders to score on the opposite side. The attackers can run, pass and evade, but not kick. Then repeat the exercise with a new group of attackers.

-The idea is to force the defenders to have to continually react, organize quickly and make loads of tackles. Consequently, keep up the momentum and the intensity of the attacks throughout this tackling drill.


Coaching points

-This drill should be high intensity but short intervals for defenders
-Defenders with weak tackling will be exposed during this drill

-Tell team that rugby is a high intensity game where are tackles are made continously and the D must constantly be ready for attacks from various angles. This drill will be challenging but is meant to be tiring and push to the limit
