Rugby Drill Demonstration


Target with this way of defence is trying to slow the attack down and despite the overlap from the opposition still to shut it down.

Coaching points

  • Tackles will be made in general with the outside shoulder.
  • The passing of the attacking team decides if the defence is drifting or not.
  • It's not attacking the attack on full speed. Its more holding it and wait for the passes and then react.
